Kindle app

For those of you who use the Kindle app on Windows 8 or Windows RT, you are in for a special treat. A new version of the app has been rolled out to the Windows Store, adding numerous new features and a new look.

“Read Kindle books on a beautiful, easy-to-use Windows 8 application. You’ll have access to over 1 million* books in the Kindle Store, including best sellers and new releases. Amazon’s Whispersync technology automatically syncs your furthest page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across all your devices that have the Kindle app installed and across any Kindle device. That means you can start reading on one device and pick up where you left off on another device,” the app description reads.

So what’s new? Version 2 of the Kindle app features a redesigned home screen, the ability to search within a book, redesigned in-book navigation, easier bookmarking, redesigned Notes and Bookmarks with filtering, and the addition of a Live Tile that showcases the book you are reading. The new update also lets you sample recommended books and the view options menu, along with the Library and search views, have been updated.
