Amazon has announced that it has updated its Kindle Reading apps for Google’s Android platform and Apple’s iOS platform, and the update apps add some new features.
You can now switch instantly between reading a book on the Kindle app and to the companion audiobook from Audible, this can be done with a single tap without having to leave the book.
“We’re working hard to help customers find more moments each day to enjoy a great book,” said Russ Grandinetti, Senior Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “Integrating professional narration into our Kindle apps means you never have to put down a favorite book—start reading at home, get in the car and simply tap a button to continue listening without losing your place.”
“We continue to hear from a growing number of Whispersync for Voice converts who tell us the innovation has profoundly changed the way they read—in fact, switching back and forth between reading and listening has become their preferred way of experiencing stories,” said Audible founder and CEO Donald Katz. “And the feature has gotten easier and easier to use, as this exciting integration into Kindle apps attests.”
