The updates also include a cleaner user interface with smaller margins and improvements on finding information on titles and authors. Magnifying text within the apps is also more seamless on any size screen.

But the biggest focus of the app updates is making the devices more visually rich for young readers. More than 1,000 children's books and comics are now available in color and content can be presented in Kindle Panel View for supported titles. This allows artwork to be showcased in a panel-by-panel layout similar to reading a traditional children's book.
Kindle Panel View is also available for non-children's books.
The news comes just a few days after Amazon rolled out the Cloud Player, a cloud-based music service is now accessible to owners of iPhones and iPod touch devices. The app allows users to stream purchased music files from Amazon or uploaded to Amazon’s cloud-based storage service.
