Cloud Reader, Kindle for iPad and iOS get update

Cloud Reader, Kindle for iPad and iOS get update

I don’t have time to check it right now (and I’ll only be looking at it in the Cloud Reader), but Amazon announced a new update:

Announcement Kindle for iPad and Kindle Cloud Reader Update

It brings the Panel Viewer (for comics/graphic novels) and improved children’s book display to the iPad, the iPhone, and the iPod touch.

The above post has links.

If you try it out, feel free to let me and my readers know what you think.

Update: I’ve tried out the Panel Viewer in my Cloud Reader on a desktop running Chrome.

I downloaded a sample of

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

Honestly, I was a bit disappointed (not with the book, which I really like, but with the Panel View).

This book has some very panel rich pages…there can be many panels.

When I double-clicked one, it did enlarge…but not all that much, in my opinion. I was expecting the panel to fill the reading area of the screen. If I zoomed Chrome up to 200%, it looked nice and large. However, the next page button was then off the screen, so that wasn’t really a good choice.

It might be pinch and spreadable on a touch screen device, but I haven’t tried that yet.
