APP WATCH: Kindle for iOS updated

Amazon is after a bit of Apple's business, offering a range of magazines just like Apple's own Newsstand with the latest version of the Kindle app.

The new version of Kindle for the iPhone and iPad differs slightly, with the new features leaning more towards the larger device. Kindle for iPad customers now have access to over 400 magazines and newspapers that are available on the Kindle Fire. Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, you can guess the kind of thing, all displayed in 'rich full-color' pages. You can buy a single issue or subscribe, each one wirelessly delivered to the Kindle for iPad app.

Also new with the update (for iPad users) is the option to read or print replica textbooks, rich formatting and layout of the print editions, support for notes and highlights, zoom and pan, and linked table of contents.

For all devices, you can now email documents to your new Send-to-Kindle email address. The documents are automatically archived in the Amazon Cloud and available for re-download on your iOS or supported Kindle devices. You can also open PDFs by transferring them from iTunes, or by sending them to your Send-to-Kindle email address and new library organisation allows you to view your Kindle books, Newsstand, and docs.

Of course, you can still read and download books too, which is perhaps the main reason for us all having the app. It's also still free – or simply update your existing app.
