kindle_app_iconAmazon today updated its Kindle for iOS app to version 4.4, adding several features that have been requested by Amazon customers to make both sync and navigation within the app easier.

Books will now sync to the most recent page read across all Kindle devices and Kindle apps that are registered to a single Amazon account, making it easier for users to swap between various Kindle devices. A feature in the navigation menu continues to allow customers to manually sync to the furthest page read if desired.

Kindle Placeholders have also been implemented, letting customers jump to different areas of a book without losing their current reading spot, and it's also possible for students to export notes, highlights, and more from "Print Replica" textbooks.

Kindle for iOS has also gained Wikipedia Smart Lookup, letting readers select a word and get more information from Wikipedia

Kindle for iOS Version 4.4 provides several customer-requested features that make sync and navigation easier.

Sync to the most recent page read - Any books you are reading on Kindle for iOS will now sync to the most recent page read across all Kindle devices and/or reading apps registered to your Amazon account. Customers can still manually sync to the furthest page read from the left navigation menu.

Kindle Placeholders - Allow customers the freedom to explore other areas of the book without losing their current place. Jump directly to previous locations with "placeholders" on the progress bar.

Notes Export - Studying for the next exam or writing the next term paper just got easier. Students can now export notes, highlights, and more to e-mail from their "Print Replica" textbooks, giving students easy access to their information.

Wikipedia Smart Lookup - Select a word and learn more from Wikipedia in the Info Card at the bottom of the page.

Performance and stability improvements.

Kindle for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Time to do something about overreach by those nosy snooping librarians. I suppose they can also remotely activate the microphone and camera on my iDevices to watch me popping Skittles in the reading carrel.

I still prefer reading books. On paper. From the library. Remember those? They are free. And Amazon can't track you.
But the library (and the government) can. ;)

Oh, are you talking about the fact that iBooks has scrolling and the Kindle app doesn't? See, I don't understand why people want that except it feels like a webpage.

I always feel like I'm going to reach the end and in large letters it will say "Try RISK FREE for 30 days!" or some such nonsense.

Lol my bad, I think I quoted the wrong person. And vertical scrolling is easier in the eyes, at least it is for me.

I just don't like when it is a single page and I'm never sure if I accidentally moved more than one page or not. It's a bit harder to do that with two pages side by side or verticals scrolling (unless your cat sits on it or something).

Kindle is still far and away the best ereader app out there in addition to Marvin. Love how they keep on coming with these updates.

If only they'd add scrolling as a reading option like in iBooks.
