Reading on your phone? Amazon updates Kindle app

Amazon Is Offering $30 Off Kindles For a Very Limited Time Save up to 40% on a bunch of Amazon Kindle products for the next few days

The service has been offered up in bits and pieces through the Kindle mobile app, but here it's essentially given its own separate tab, bringing most of the Goodreads standalone app's features to the interface.

On Tuesday, Amazon redesigned the free Kindle app for iOS and Android, with larger book covers, newer fonts, a lighter backdrop and what Amazon says will be a more seamless experience switching back and forth from the book you are reading to your library of books.

In spite of media claims regarding its death, Amazon's still pretty bullish about this whole "reading" "books" thing.

Amazon today announced a major update to its Kindle app for Android and iOS. You can shop the entire Kindle e-reader sale here. The app also has a new design and a way to pin the book you're now reading. As much as 80% is being slashed from the price of these e-books which is indeed a salutory move by Amazon.

Numerous new social integrations in the Community tab require users to have a free Goodreads account, although non-Goodreads members can still get basic recommendations.

If you don't have friends (maybe because you spend all of your time reading, which actually sounds like a pretty nice life), your Goodreads feed will fill with popular books and authors, so you can find some people to follow.

Share Your Thoughts About Books You've Read. The company has released an updated version of the Kindle app, which includes a revamped look, better search and a lot more. Amazon doesn't disclose financial results for the overall Kindle business, but sales in the USA and worldwide are up year-over-year, said Mike Torres, an Amazon director on the Kindle business.

"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".

E-readers are dropping in popularity.
