New update 5.04 update available for the Kindle Touch, Kindle for PC updated
Thanks to regular reader and commenter Tom Semple for the heads-up on this.
There is a new update available for the Kindle Touch (5.0.4).
The description isn’t very explicit: “This update features general software improvements for Kindle Touch.”
I won’t get a chance to test it until later, but if you want to get it right away, you can at
There are instructions there for using your USB cable to transfer it to your KT.
You can also just wait, and you should get it when connected to wi-fi…that’s easier, but it’s hard to say when it will happen.
Tom also tells me that Kindle for PC has been updated to accommodate KF8 (Kindle Format 8). I’m not where I can test that one, either.
If you get either of these and notice differences, feel free to let me know.
