A revamped user interface, enhanced parental controls, cloud storage, book cover view in library and store, and graphic novel support top the major features included in the update. Whispersync for Voice is also included which lets users swap between reading a Kindle book and an audible audio book without losing their place.


Another notable features is Amazon's Time To Read feature, which tells users how long it will take them to finish the book based on their pace. The software is available from Amazon now with an over-the-air update coming shortly.
