Amazon today announced the all-new Kindle app for iOS and Android devices. This update comes with new design that provides easy access to the most popular Kindle features. It will allow readers to effortlessly move between the pages of their book, their library, their personalized bookstore and more.
- All-New Look—The Kindle app features a new look and feel inspired by books. Details include larger book covers, new fonts, a new app icon, and new light and dark background themes to choose from.
- One-Tap Access—New bottom bar navigation automatically shows an icon of the book you’re currently reading, making it easier than ever to get back to reading at any moment. The bottom bar also provides quick access to Kindle’s most popular features allowing you to switch between the pages of your book, your library, your personal bookstore, and more.
- Easy Search—The search bar is now always available throughout the app, so whether a book is in your library or among the millions of titles in the Kindle Store, it’s easier than ever to find it.
The new Kindle for iOS app also comes with Goodreads integration. With this integration, users can browse the new Community tab to keep up-to-date with what friends and readers they follow are reading. When they find a book they are interested in, they can add it to their Want to Read list for quick reference when they are ready to start their next book. This Goodreads integration will be coming to Kindle Android app in the future.
“We’ve built the new Kindle app from the ground up for book lovers, giving readers easy access to everything they might want to do with their books, all in one place,” said Chuck Moore, Vice President, Kindle. “It’s now easier than ever to turn your phone or tablet into a book and immerse yourself in an author’s world at any time.”
