Amazon is the 3rd major company to remove the store link from their iOS application to comply with Apples new mandate. The store link used to be in the top right hand corner on the iPad app, but as you can see from our screenshot post update, it is gone. Last week Kobo and Borders were the first ones to remove the store link from their application.
The Amazon update for iOS not only removes the store feature to buy new content but also puts in a load of new features. You can share quotes and passages with your friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter while reading. You can now read newspapers and magazines on your device if you subscribed to them on your Kindle. These newspapers and magazines are then synced to your iPad via the archive feature.
