Pocketbook has just issued a new firmware update for the Aqua 2, InkPad 3, and Touch HD that adds gesture controls to adjust the luminosity of the front-lit display and color temperature. When you are reading an ebook you can drag your finger up or down on the left side of the screen and it will increase or decrease the amount of light. This can be accomplished when the e-reader is in portrait or landscape mode.
- Smoother page scaling with gestures in books in PDF or DjVu format
- More precise positioning when selecting words in the text to work with notes
or for the purpose of translation
- Possibility to switch the position sensor on and off via the settings menu.
- Linguistic improvements
