Amazon has updated its Kindle app for iOS with multicolor highlights, book end actions, and saved brightness levels.

The Kindle app is optimized for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, giving users the ability to read Kindle books, newspapers, magazines, textbooks and PDFs on a beautiful, easy-to-use interface. You’ll have access to over 1,000,000* books in the Kindle Store plus hundreds* of newspapers and magazines. Amazon Whispersync automatically syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across devices (including Kindle), so you can pick up your book where you left off on another device.

Features:
• Shop the Kindle Store by visiting Amazon for the largest selection of books people want
to read: over a million books, including over 800,000 at $9.99 or less.
• Get free book samples – read the first chapter free before you decide to buy.
• Read hundreds* of newspapers and magazines including The Economist, Reader’s Digest, Martha Stewart Living, and Food Network Magazine with high resolution color images. Visit the Kindle Store to subscribe to a newspaper or magazine and have each edition automatically delivered, or purchase individual issues.
• Email PDFs & other documents to your new Send-to-Kindle e-mail address and we deliver them to your device. The documents are automatically archived in the Amazon Cloud and available for re-download on your iOS or supported Kindle devices. You can also read PDFs from Mail, Safari, or by transferring them from iTunes.
• Customize your reading experience by choosing the margin size, background color, font size, and either portrait or landscape format.
• Instant dictionary word lookup with 250,000 entries and definitions. Tap and hold a word to view the definition.
• Search inside the book to find a character, topic, or section you want to revisit.
• Simply tap on either side of the screen or flick to turn pages.
• You can also read your Kindle books on your Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch, PC, Mac, Android-based device, and Windows Phone 7-based device. Our Whispersync technology
syncs your last page read, notes, bookmarks, and highlights across devices, so you can pick up where you left off.
• With Kindle textbooks you save up to 60% off print list prices when you buy, and up to 80% when you rent. Use the Notebook in your Print Replica textbooks to review your bookmarks, highlights, notes. Tag and filter the most important items to study.

What's New In This Version:
• Multicolor Highlights – Four color choices make it easier to distinguish important passages.
• Book End Actions – Just finish your book? Share the accomplishment with friends on Facebook and Twitter. Rate and write your own review. See other books that might interest you and add them to a wish list.
• Brightness Control – the brightness setting will now be saved across device sleeps.

You can download Kindle from the App Store for free.

Amazon is evil: They mistreat temporary workers, avoid to pay social insurance contributions and tax and even use Neo-Nazis (via a security company) to intimidate the temp workers... Not in China, but in Germany! Boycott Amazon!
