Kindle for iPad, iPhone 5.9 Adds Guided View, new Sideloading Option
The update adds a new sharing option for iOS Safari, enabling readers to easily convert documents and web pages and save them to their Kindle library.
The other new feature is support for Comixology’s guided view, the frame by frame viewing mode which directs readers along the story.
Amazon bought Comixology in 2014, and then integrated the platforms in 2015 so that users could read their Kindle purchased comics in the Comixology apps. Now apparently the integration goes both ways.
- ComiXology’s Guided View is now available on Kindle! Experience comics in a whole new way with this breakthrough cinematic and immersive reading mode.
- Send to Kindle – Now you can save documents and web pages to your Kindle library. Tap the share button in Safari and add Kindle as a destination. Web pages are converted to Kindle format so you can adjust the text, font and page color, and read on any Kindle app or device.
- Bug fixes and performance improvements.
You can find the app in iTunes.
