Amazon removed the ebookstore link from the Kindle iOS app

And now the other shoe has dropped.

Amazon Kindle pr tweeted just a few minutes that there's a new update for the Kindle iOS apps. First thing they changed was exactly what you'd expect: the link that used to lead you to the Kindle Store has been removed.

I don't have an iGadget at hand, so I'm working from the updated listing.

The good news is that even though Apple took away with one hand, Amazon gave with the other. The iOS apps now support subscription content as well as automated delivery.  This is new, and I'm surprised that the Android app got it first.

You can also share quotes and passages with your friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter while reading.

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."

    I was hoping the fun and games would last a few days, at least. 🙂
    Still, there’s still Nook.
