What's New

Goodreads Auto-update (US only)
Now it’s even easier to keep your Goodreads profile updated and let your friends know what you are reading. You have the option to automatically mark books as “Currently Reading” when you start them, and “Read” when you finish them. You can also move a book to a different shelf or remove it from your Goodreads profile – all from within the Kindle app for iOS.
 
Page Flip (Released in v5.0)
Page Flip is a new navigation experience that makes it easier to explore your book while saving your place. Zoom out to get a bird’s eye view of the book and quickly find what you’re looking for. At a glance, easily recognize specific pages as you jump around.  Pictures, charts, your highlights, and the layout of each page are easy to see with Page Flip’s pixel-accurate thumbnails that automatically adjust as you change your font and margin settings.

Page Flip automatically saves the page you’re reading in a book, pinning it to the side of your screen for easy navigation.  Flip back and forth in a book with confidence, knowing you can instantly jump back to reading with a simple tap of your pinned page.
