Kindle 4 Mac updated

I've just heard over on MobileRead that Amazon have updated the Kindle4Mac reading app. I don't have a Mac so I cannot confirm this. Here are some of the improvements in the latest update:

  • Use the built-in dictionary to seamlessly look up the definitions of English words without interrupting your reading.
  • Real page numbers for thousands of books in the Kindle Store. Now you can easily reference and cite passages, and read alongside others in a book club or class.
  • If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book.
  • Choose whether you'd like to browse your library in a tile view or in a list view.

You can download the app from Amazon or from the Mac App Store.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. As Steve Jobs said in a different context, I’m flummoxed. The Kindle4Mac app that I have installed on my iMac, from the Mac App Store, is version 1.2.3. But I don’t see any updates listed in the Mac App Store.

    All of the reviews I’ve read of the update say it’s available in the Mac App Store, and there’s a link to the store on Amazon’s own site. But it’s been several days now and no update seems to have appeared.

    Do you know what’s going on?
