The latest update to Amazon's Kindle app is all about making reading easier. To that end, the app offers a new page layout system designed for all screens, as well as better word spacing, which combines with hyphenation for decreased eye strain. Amazon has also added Bookerly, a new exclusive font designed for reading on screens.
Check out the list below for all of the changes in Kindle 4.9:
Faster Reading, Less Eye Strain: Hyphenation plus smoother word spacing result in faster reading with less eye strain. Improved character placement increases word recognition speed at any font size.
Beautiful Page Layout: Drop caps, text, and images that automatically adapt to always look great no matter what your screen or font size. Print-like layout dynamically adjusts for any combination of screen size and font setting.
Large Fonts, Without Compromises: Enjoy reading with larger font sizes without compromising your reading experience. Page layout and margins automatically adapt to look great with even the largest font sizes.
Bookerly - The Font for Readers: Bookerly is a new Kindle exclusive font designed for reading on digital screens. Warm and contemporary, Bookerly is inspired by the artistry of the best fonts in modern print books but is hand-crafted for optimal readability at any screen size. Bookerly is available on most Kindle books.
You can download the update now from the App Store.
