The Kindle for PC page has again been updated (see features of original, basic Kindle for PC) with the following new features:
Download the new version to enjoy these new features.
As with all of our services, we plan to continue improving Kindle for PC. Below are some features we are thinking about bringing to Kindle for PC in the near future:
- Real Page Numbers
See real page numbers for thousands of books in the Kindle Store. Now you can easily reference and cite passages, and read alongside others in a book club or class.
- Popular Highlights
See what our community of Kindle readers think are the most interesting passages in your books. If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book.
- Touch for Windows 7 Tablets
Enjoy a touch-friendly interface on Windows 7 tablet computers.
- Library Management
A new way to manage and organize your content
Here's an image of how they implemented the Page numbers display that are included with Locations display for the computer version of Kindle.
The PREVIOUS big update in November added these features:
* Use the built-in dictionary to seamlessly look up the definitions of
English words without interrupting your reading.
* Read in the standard one-column mode or take advantage of a larger screen
with a multi-column view, which will automatically adjust
according to your screen size. [ Very slick. ]
* Choose whether you'd like to browse your library in a tile view or in a list view.
Examples of normal one-column book page mode and the multi-column view:
By the way, in the November changes that allow us to view by covers or by a detailed text listing, we have new sorting options:
1. TEXT listing: Sort by TYPE (New or Sample, at the top or bottom)
2. TEXT & COVER: Sort by LENGTH of book.
UPDATE, later same day
Les Bell posted in the Amazon forum the following:
' ... the problem seems to have been resolved - I just downloaded the latest version of K4PC [1.4.1 (31629)] and it seems to be displaying math & Greek characters correctly - albeit the book (Modeling and Reasoning with Bayesian Networks...) is displaying in a sans serif font, rather than the serif font I believe it was in previously. 'As before, the Kindle team says they'd like to hear from Kindle for PC users.
"You can send them to the Kindle team at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the feedback form available in the application - we'd love to hear what you think"
