The Amazon Kindle for iPad and iPhone application has been revised to include a multitude of new features that enhance your reading experience. Some great new inclusions include a progress meter to see how far you are into a book and being able to look up words via Wikipedia and Google without leaving the Amazon application.
The new features implemented this Valentines day are sure to appeal to lovelorn book readers everywhere! One of the most prevalent updates include real page numbers. This is a feature that is available in the beta release for the Kindle e-Reader 3.02 firmware we reported on a week ago. This allows the ebook page numbers to correspond with the true book, to allow for proper citations.
The home screen has well has undergone a small revision that gives you visual cues on how far you have progressed through an ebook. Small progress bars now give you all of the information you need to know!
Finally a great new feature is the ability to look up words not only with the dictionary but you can get the Google and Wikipedia definations without having to leave the Amazon Application for iOS.
