What's New in Version 4.10

I have owned a Kindle tablet from the early days when it was just a book reader! Upgraded to a Kindle Fire HD and have always loved the convenience of that tablet for all sorts of books, magazines etc. Kindle for PC/IOS is a natural progression and allows me to keep my place on any book I am reading on whatever format machine I am using. The App has always worked well for me and the regular upgrades have been welcome. I was always an avid book reader but I couldn't imagine life now without having the app so that I can dip in and out of my books, mags and documents whenever and wherever I choose.
The app is prettier than the Kindle device itself.
I received a Kindle last Christmas and I was thrilled. For the last 10-12 years I have been using the app on my iPads ( I have 5), on my windows computer and MacBook.
I was quite shocked that due to the colour screen of the computers, the covers made the collection of books so much more beautiful. Reading does not make a difference as the text is just black. The internet promised us the freedom of the digital world. Profit however has put us back into a digital world with digital boundaries.
Lucky US users will never feel this discrimination.
Kindle & kindle app
I love my paper white kindle and when I'm out and about I sometimes use my app on my iPad mini or phone. It's so easy to use and I can just pick up and carry on reading from where I left off as they all sync with one another. I like to refer back to information in books also, so sometimes when I'm on my iPad I can just quickly find what I need to know. Love having my books right there. Very good app.
