Amazon has finally listened to their customers, Amazon Kindle is just an amazing and useful device; actually I consider it to be the most useful gadget ever made.
The new features are awesome, especially the Collections & PDF Zoom; however the other new features like Twitter & Facebook and Popular highlights may push them to charge for wireless connectivity, people are just crazy when it comes to social networking.
The features included in this update are:
- Facebook & Twitter Posts
- Password Protection
- Popular Highlights
- PDF Pan and Zoom
- More Font Sizes & Improved Clarity
I love this feature because I have about 103 books of different flavour. Technical, Political, Textbooks, Travel, References and Novels! one thing I hated about the previous version is that I had jump from page into another to get the book I wanted to read. Now, I can just sort them into Collections and make my life easier, especially when my Kindle library is growing faster than I thought as I’m reading more now.
I don’t see the use of such feature in a Reading device, albeit I’m sure many people will just love it; but let’s see, maybe I would want to share a quote on twitter or facebook.
I purely use Kindle for reading books and never loaded any personal document into it but this is definitely a good addition especially to those who have personal documents on Kindle
Password protect your Kindle when you’re not using it
This is an interesting and useful one, it may get your attention to a page you skipped or something from different perspective but all depends on the user generated content, hopefully we will have smart users.
Zoom into PDFs and pan around to easily view small print and detailed tables or graphics
Enjoy two new larger font sizes and sharper fonts for an even more comfortable reading experience
Enough talking and let me now enjoy my newly updated Kindle 2.
