  1. Still no yellow text on black background. My iPad book purchases have largely shifted from Amazon to Barnes and Noble for this reason alone. I find the white text on black to be too harsh.

  2. Go to the iPhone settings page, “General”->”Accessibility” and change “Triple-Click Home” to “Toggle White on Black”. Then whenever you want to reverse the screen, just triple-click. Works in any app, including Kindle for iPhone.
