Now Amazon has launched a new and much-improved way for readers to access their Kindle notes and highlights. Kindle users got an email today with the news:
We have good news. Customers have been asking for more ways to access their Kindle notes and highlights—especially on their phones.
We’ve created a new home for all your notes and highlights that’s easy to access from your phone, tablet, or PC. Now you can easily refer to your notes and highlights wherever you are. Visit the new home for Your Notes and Highlights at read.amazon.com/notebook.
The new site serves much the same purpose as the old, but it has a better design. It works on a smartphone and your iPad, while the older site was only designed to work on desktop web browsers.
You can use the site to delete highlights, add or edit notes, and the new Notebook site can also show you where you made the highlight.
I was just testing this site, and I found that I could use it to open Kindle for PC exactly where I had made a note.
This feature does not work on Android, however. (And for some unknown reason, Amazon does not send you to its cloud reading app – even though it’s only a click away).
But none of that really matters; the new site is a huge improvement and will be quite useful.
