Amazon 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.

Outside of inside your iPhone, it’s hard to find a working ET66 these days, which is why it’s so great that Braun intends on re-releasing the original model later this year as an official replica. No word on price or exact availibility yet, but I know I’ll be getting one. Won’t you?
