Amazon Kindle iOS app updated; gets line spacing options, multiple page highlights

Amazon recently rolled out an update for the iOS version of its Kindle app. The most notable feature in the newest version in the update is the host of new line spacing options that let you customise how tightly the text is displayed: you get to choose between loose, normal and tight line spacing.


The app now lets you add multi-page highlights too—users can highlight lengthy passages spanning multiple pages. What's more, you can now filter notebooks by type: notes, bookmarks and highlights. You can also sync starred notes between devices.

To improve accessibility, Amazon has added the ability to let users select a higher maximum font size. The app has also received some bug fixes and stability improvements.

One of the earlier updates to the iOS app improved the social aspect, in addition to adding other features. The app can now automatically prompt users to share their views on a particular book when they finish reading it on the app. The Kindle Fire has had this ability for quite a while now, along with a host of other post-reading options.


The native Amazon Kindle app for iOS devices has been optimised for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The app lets you read Kindle books, newspapers, magazines, textbooks and PDFs, and gives you access to over 1,000,000 books on the Kindle Store, in addition to several newspapers and magazines.


Head over to the iTunes store to download the update.
