amazonkindle

Amazon's Kindle app has received a somewhat sizable update today for Android and iOS, adding Whispersync for Voice to its feature list. The feature had previously been reserved only for Kindle Fire tablets, and now the audiobook syncing feature is available to a much wider audience. 

The beauty of Whispersync for Voice is that the location within the book will be saved and synced across your devices, allowing you to read or listen to your current book without needing to worry about losing your place. With over 45,000 narrations found in the Kindle store, users can upgrade their e-books to audiobooks starting at $0.99 and $3.99 for best-sellers, like the Hunger Games series.

The latest update to the Kindle app also comes with a few other tweaks, including improved cross-device sync and notifications, multi-color highlights, and the ability to go back to previous locations from the progress bar. Users can also now copy text from the app and paste it into another. 

The updated Kindle app is now available in the Google Play Store as well as Amazon's own Android App Store.
