Amazon Updates its Kindle iOS App for Students


The Kindle for iOS has been updated to include more tools for students. The complete changelog of the Kindle 4.1 for iOS:

  • Flashcards
  • Improved in-book search
  • Notebook filters
  • Page footers
  • X-Ray update
  • Dictionary redesign
  • Collections refinements

Coupled with Amazon’s upgrade of their tablet-babysitting functionality of FreeTime, it seems as though the Kindle wants to be recognized as a learning tool.
