kindle11iphone-a Yesterday Amazon’s Kindle application for iPhone was updated to version 1.1 and it brings over a lot of improved and new features that were clearly brought over from the Stanza developers.  First off, we have the ability to change color schemes.  We still have the traditional black text on white but now we also have white/grey text on black or also a sepia color scheme (shown, Image Courtesy of CNET).  The Kindle app also now takes advantage of the iPhone’s accelerometer by letting you read your books in landscape mode. The lock icon shown in the screenshot is present in both portrait and landscape and lets you disable the auto-rotate feature.  Amazon also now has enabled pinch zooming to enlarge and shrink your book’s text along with “Stanza-esque” page turning by tapping the left and right half of the screen.  I’m not sure if this was present before or not but there is now a “Get Books” button on the home screen which closes the Kindle app and takes you to a relatively new iPhone formatted Kindle Store via Safari.

The Kindle App is still free via iTunes and the 1.1 update is live now.
