What's New in Version 5.12
For customers who have linked their Goodreads and Amazon accounts, you can now post your Kindle notes and highlights to your friends and followers on Goodreads.
You can now read using left-aligned (ragged right) text instead of justified (aligned on both left and right margin). This new alignment option can be selected from the Display Settings (Aa) menu within Kindle books that support Enhanced Typesetting. On the Kindle eBook Store page, look for "Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled" in the features list.
ragged right hallelujah
I've hoped, wished, and asked for this feature for years and finally gave up. It's why I originally shunned Kindle over iBooks. I bought so many books in iBooks just because it was ragged right capability. I can't believe they finally added it after all this time.

This app desperately needs a diet
Take note. Earlier when I complained about how bloated this app had become it was 137 MB. This latest update is 166 MB, so the problem has only grown worse.
Oyster's reader is 48.7 MB, Nook's is 64.7 MB, and Kobo's is 107 MB. So why does Amazon's have to be 166 MB? For most readers, it does the same thing as those do. I grew so tired of this bloat, I removed it from mine.
Amazon needs to offer a Kindle Lite that's only for reading.
