Amazon rolls out redesigned Kindle app for iOS, Android devices

Global e-tailer Amazon on Tuesday announced an all-new Kindle app that is designed for book lovers and provides easy access to the most popular Kindle features.

"We've built the new Kindle app from the ground up for book lovers, giving readers easy access to everything they might want to do with their books, all in one place," said Chuck Moore, Vice President, Kindle.

The Kindle app features a new look and feel inspired by the books. Details include larger book covers, new fonts, a new app icon, and new light and dark background themes to choose from.

New bottom bar navigation automatically shows an icon of the book you are reading, making it easier to get back to reading at any moment.

The bottom bar also provides quick access to Kindle's most popular features allowing you to switch between the pages of your book, your library, your personal bookstore, the company said.

"It's now easier than ever to turn your phone or tablet into a book and immerse yourself in an author's world at any time," Moore added.

The Kindle app is available now in the App Store and Google Play and will be delivered as part of a free, over-the-air update starting this week.
