Owners of Amazon’s bestselling Kindle now have a free software update (3.1) available. While this update will not be pushed out until a few days or weeks later, ambitious owners can download it manually (an early preview). Here is list of some of the features to be expected in this free software update:
- Public Notes – This feature lets Kindle users choose to make their book notes and highlights available for others to see.
- Real Page Numbers – Our customers have told us they want real page numbers that match the page numbers in print books so they can easily reference and cite passages, and read alongside others in a book club or class. Rather than add page numbers that don’t correspond to print books, which is how page numbers have been added to e-books in the past, we’re adding real page numbers that correspond directly to a book’s print edition.
- Before You Go… – When you reach the end of the book, we will now offer a seamless experience that lets you immediately rate the book, share a message about the book with your social network, get personalized recommendations for what to read next, and see more books by the same author.
- New Newspaper and Magazine Layout – We’re introducing a new and improved layout for newspapers and magazines. This new layout gives you a quick snapshot of the news and helps you decide what you want to read first.
