What's New in Version 5.7.1
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Dictionary not working with the new update
When you highlight a word, the brief dictionary snippet comes on, but if you click on 'Full definition', regardless of what the word is you are searching for, it takes you to dictionary page for 'philistine'. Which is ironic, but also really annoying. A revenge by an underpaid app developer perhaps?
ps. Same thing happens with different books, and only since the most recent update.
Not Great for those who use it for work / study books
I use kindle for my work and study books, but the accuracy when highlighting is not great.
The real problem for me though is lack of support for split screen, making it impossible to take notes in apps like Evernote while reading
A great app
Love this kindle app. I can catch up on all my reading on my phone and iPad on the go or at home. Would recommend.
