At Amazon, we've been hard at work to make reading on Kindle even better and more enjoyable. Several exciting improvements offer faster reading with less eye strain. Available today on hundreds of thousands of books, and coming soon to all Kindle books.
Faster Reading, Less Eye Strain
Hyphenation plus smoother word spacing result in faster reading with less eye strain. Improved character placement increases word recognition speed at any font size.
Beautiful Page Layout
Drop caps, text, and images that automatically adapt to always look great no matter what your screen or font size. Print-like layout dynamically adjusts for any combination of screen size and font setting.
Large Fonts, Without Compromises
Enjoy reading with larger font sizes without compromising your reading experience. Page layout and margins automatically adapt to look great with even the largest font sizes.
Bookerly - The Font for Readers
Bookerly is a new Kindle exclusive font designed for reading on digital screens. Warm and contemporary, Bookerly is inspired by the artistry of the best fonts in modern print books but is hand-crafted for optimal readability at any screen size. Bookerly is available on most Kindle books.
Font still horrible and no option to revert screen view with new books. New downloads show as new font and cannot change screen view. Still cannot change screen orientation with update. Bookerley is not Publisher Font but that is what Kindle app chooses and doesn't change. Bookerley does not make things easier to read. Sharp fonts are easier Bookerley isn't sharp. Would give no stars if possible.
Needs better fonts , needs an icon for scrolling down and up and also needs more colour/more layout options
Best Reading App Ever
The Kindle app is where are you better than any other reading apps. Like for example its where are you better than Apple iBooks, or the Kobo. It's like real easy to use, you can make collections (makes a great organizer), it's doesn't have a whole lot to it (main reason why I like it) and it's like real easy to use and very enjoyable.Real easy to download your books.
