Flashcards, notebook export, and improved notebook filtering available on more textbooks
Flashcards, Notebook Export to email, and richer notebook filtering (including chapter-based filtering) have been expanded to nearly all textbooks (and many non-textbooks as well).
kindle is great, but most of all, I love the kindle app that allows me to read seamlessly from one device to another. I can go from kindle to iPhone to iPad and it syncs to where I left off. The kindle app has a very handy orientation lock (no need to mess with my phone settings) and an easy to use dictionary (no accidental highlighting!). It tells you what page you're on and what percentage of the book you've read and even how many hours or minutes are left in the book or chapter (assuming you read at the average speed), not just the locations (what are those, anyway?), so you always know where you are. I recently read a book on iBooks and it was a frustrating experience, which made me love kindle even more!
So helpful for grad student
As a grad student I have so much to read and the physical books can be heavy to lug around. I just purchased my send textbook and reading on the kindle app makes my life easier. If I come across an unfamiliar word I cane highlight the word and kindle will provide a definition. If the graphic is small I can zoom in and kindle will automatically access the graphic to full scale, which can be closed quickly with a touch on the X. Highlighting and placing a note in the text is a breeze.
I would very much like to see the developers add the option to be able to underline text.
This is minor, but I wish I could see the page number while reading.
I really like the kindle app and the new bookerly font. One feature I have wanted for years though is to be able to mark a book as read or unread. Now, as soon as you open a book it takes the "new" label off and that's all you have. I start books and then switch to something else, or open something and decide to read something else first all the time. The progress indicators don't help either, because I'll sometimes search for a specific thing without reading the whole book.
