Kindle users will also enjoy the new thumbholder feature which makes it easier for you to skip to a different location in an ebook and then return. There's also a new option to export your notes from a Kindle Print Ready ebook but sadly that option is only available on Amazon's PDF format (and not all Kindle ebooks).
And finally, if you search on a term in a Kindle ebook, any relevant Wikipedia entry will be shown on a smart card at the bottom of the screen, next to smart cards with a dictionary definition and the relevant X-Ray entry (if it exists).
The following screenshots will show you what two of the new features look like. You can find the app in iTunes.
- 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.
