Kindle iOS app gains new layouts, rapid highlights

New tools aid with print replica textbooks

Amazon has posted a new version of its Kindle app for iOS, v3.2. On the iPad the app now offers three different margin sizes, which alter the amount of whitespace. Both the iPhone and iPad interfaces have gained a quick highlighting tool, and better brightness adjustment, including a more responsive slider and refined font hues.

Several additions are aimed at supporting print replica textbooks. Photos, illustrations, tables, and charts can be highlighted, for example, and a new Notebook feature compiles every note, bookmark, highlight, and image. Each item can be tagged for filtering during search. When reading through textbooks, v3.2 makes it easier to flip through pages, particularly via back/forward buttons and page thumbnails.

The Kindle app is a free download, and runs on any device compatible with iOS 4.3 or later.
