Amazon has its Kindle app for Android devices missed an all-optical regeneration and set the version number 4 on this occasion. An update seems at present still somewhat risky, some functions can stay on track.
available in play since Friday Kindle Store App 4,0,1,3 (previous version number: 184.108.40.206) brings the Kindle Fire look to other Android devices. Most striking feature is the “carousel”, is now scrolled horizontally by using the e-book offer. In addition to the cover and the respective reading progress is displayed. Of course there is still an optional list view of your own e-book library.
Textsync No, no dictionaries
At least in some cases, however, seems to be the new app to cause two problems that users in several reviews (in the U.S. Play Store, there are well over 100 alone 4,0,1,3) are documented. Firstly, there are occasional problems with the passages synchronization: New text positions are then transferred properly to the cloud, it always reads from the same place going. Secondly, the built-in dictionaries in some cases seem to be no longer available, a tab again to be translated word does not cause pop-ups more.
update still recommended
major updates errors are almost inevitable in principle – are horrifying little problems with Kindle for Android 4 to mute annoying, but not really dramatic. Compared with the recent bug the Kindle iOS app update in the temporarily disappeared the entire e-book library from the device, the error occurs the Android App are negligible – and certainly very soon dispelled by Amazon. The real innovations of course remain a matter of taste: In the reviews, there are a lot of praise for the now modern and uncluttered home screen, many users want but also more e-book management options (keyword: shelves).
