If you have the Amazon Kindle app on your iOS device, you might want to check out the new update rolling out now. In this new update, there are some redesigns within the app as well as a new feature. We have all of the latest news about the new Amazon Kindle iOS update. Read on to learn all about what this update brings and how it will make reading on your iOS device much easier.
Amazon Kindle App for iOS Gets New Look
One of the biggest changes you will notice in the Amazon Kindle app for iOS update is the new look. There is now an easier way to get to all of the popular features on Kindle. You will be able to get to the book store much quicker, as well as move through the pages of a book quicker and easier. Accessing the library will also be much easier now with this Kindle app for iOS update. This will all allow a streamlined process for those on the Kindle iOS app, which is much appreciated.
Some of the new redesigns that we wanted to mention include new fonts, a new app icon, and larger book covers. There is a background theme that is much lighter now as well, which is going to be an alternative to the darker option. There is one-tap access now to the books that you are reading right this minute, which is on the bottom bar navigation menu. You will notice you also now have a search bar that is right in the app itself. This search bar is all throughout the app and will allow you to search your entire Kindle library. The search bar feature also allows you to search for books in the Amazon Kindle Store.
Amazon Kindle iOS App Also Integrates Goodreads
Another new feature in the Amazon Kindle app for iOS is the integration of Goodreads. You will now be able to login to your Goodreads account and find any information you want. You can discuss the books with other people and get new book recommendations. Goodreads is like a social network for those who love to read.
The integration into Amazon Kindle makes perfect sense because you will be able to access the features of the reader-based network right from the app. This will come in handy to help you select a new book or decide whether a book is worth reading. Amazon has managed to integrate Goodreads into a few Kindle products over the years. Amazon purchased Goodreads back in 2013, so it is nice seeing a deeper integration with Kindle.
Some features of Goodreads you can access in the Kindle app for iOS include suggestions on who you can follow, and a new Community tab. This Community tab will allow you to see what your friends are all reading right now. You will be able to post various highlights and notes from the books you are reading. A friend can then comment on what you posted and you will be able to share with people when you begin or have finished a book. The Goodreads integration into the Amazon Kindle iOS app is only for people within the United States. At some point in the future, there will be a Kindle update for Android that will include the Goodreads integration too.
