Kindle-iOS-1With all the buzz surrounding Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet this holiday season, it’s easy to forget that the company also supports Kindle applications on Apple devices.

Today, Amazon rolled out an update to its Kindle iOS app that brings lots of useful new of features that were previously requested by Kindle customers.

Perhaps the biggest addition included in the update is a new magazine-style view for the iPad, which optimizes content for a larger screen. The iPad app adds support for layout and rich text formatting on print editions. You can also add notes, zoom & pan, and access a table of contents.

In addition to a new library organization view, all versions of the Kindle iOS app (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) also let you take advantage of Amazon’s cloud services. You can now add documents to your Amazon Cloud account by emailing it to your specific Kindle address. Those documents are then available to view on all Kindle-enabled devices.
