Kindle for iOS and Android Gets Major Update

In what parents and comic book fans everywhere are calling a major development, Amazon today announced a huge update for its Android and iOS mobile applications.

As independently confirmed by The Verge, Amazon’s update delivers support for children’s books, comics, and graphics novels.

According to the online retail giant, more than 1,000 beloved titles are available for parents to now share with their children – or enjoy all to themselves.

Such titles include Curious George, and comics like Batman and Superman.

Comics and graphic novels “will be presented in panel view,” the article reads, “which shows artwork in a panel-by-panel experience that reads as the author intended.”

As part of the update, Amazon has also introduced library search by title and author in Kindle for iOS, and tweaked the layout on the iPad with smaller margins. Additionally, the Kindle app for Android tablets and Kindle Cloud Reader have been updated with a two-page viewing option for widescreen displays.
