Amazon has today rolled an update to their Kindle for iOS application in the App Store. The new Kindle iOS application brings the application to version 3.7. The latest Kindle iOS application comes with number of improvements and bug fixes over the last most stabled version of the Kindle application. In addition to the improvements and bug fixes, Amazon brings a major feature for the users with iOS VoiceOver feature integration into their application.
Amazon has approached another level with their application development on iOS with tapping on the integration for VoiceOver feature into the Kindle application that allow users to easily access their files, books, and library through their voice. Amazon approached the disable users to easily access their content on Kindle iOS application without taking a look at screen. It will allow users to give voice commands to Kindle iOS application. Including VoiceOver feature, Amazon makes their application capable to convert books into audio books with the integration of VoiceOver features.
There is another feature included in this major update to Amazon Kindle for iOS application, X-Ray – a new feature that allow users to easily browse through the structure of any book on Kindle iOS Application. Well, all I can say is that Amazon wasted lot of time in picking up this already baked feature in their application. But still, it is good to see such integration of iOS core features into third-party applications.
