As with all of our services, we plan to continue improving Kindle for PC. Below are some features we are thinking about bringing to Kindle for PC in the near future:
- Library Management
A new way to manage and organize your content
Here’s an image of how they implemented the Page numbers display that are included with Locations display for the computer version of Kindle.
The PREVIOUS big update in November added these features:
* Use the built-in dictionary to seamlessly look up the definitions of
English words without interrupting your reading.
* Read in the standard one-column mode or take advantage of a larger screen
with a multi-column view, which will automatically adjust
according to your screen size. [ Very slick. ]
* Choose whether you’d like to browse your library in a tile view or in a list view.
Examples of normal one-column book page mode and the multi-column view:
By the way, in the November changes that allow us to view by covers or by a detailed text listing, we have new sorting options:
1. TEXT listing: Sort by TYPE (New or Sample, at the top or bottom)
2. COVER listing: Sort by LENGTH of book.
As before, the Kindle team says they’d like to hear from Kindle for PC users.
“You can send them to the Kindle team at email@example.com or via the feedback form available in the application – we’d love to hear what you think”
