By : |October 26, 2017 0

Amazon has announced an all-new Kindle app that makes it easier to turn your phone or tablet into a book—so you can read anytime, anywhere. The revamped Kindle app is designed to provide easy access to the most popular Kindle features including larger book covers, new fonts, a new app icon, and new light and dark background themes to choose from.

“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.

With the new Kindle app, it is easier to get to what you want. Whether it’s starting the next chapter in the book you’re reading or a quick search through your library, the all-new design makes switching back and forth seamless. Key updates include:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

There is also greater integration of Amazon’s Goodreads service, with easier access to your friends’ Goodreads profile and recommendation lists, as well as a revamp of the Kindle account section to include more Goodreads details. The app’s notification centre also gets support for Goodreads posts, such as friends’ notes and highlights.

The Kindle app is available now in the App Store and Google Play and will be delivered as part of a free, over-the-air update starting this week.
