Kindle for iPad and iPhone Updated – Kindle Store Button Removed

Amazon has updated the Kindle app for the iPhone and iPad today. The new update brings a few new features but also takes one away. The feature removed is the Kindle store button that takes users directly from the app to the store to buy books. This has been met by a bit of frustration by regular Kindle app users:

You can no longer go to buy books or get samples directly from the app. Apple made them remove the store feature, but I can’t see myself using my kindle app on my phone or IPad anymore.

Another said the app has now just become unappealing.

With that aside, Amazon has added some features also with one of them being the ability to subscribe to news papers and have them pushed to your device automatically as explained below:

Read over 100 newspapers and magazines including The Economist and Reader’s Digest with high resolution color images. Visit the Kindle Store to subscribe to a newspaper or magazine and have each edition automatically delivered, or purchase individual issues.

Also readers can now share quotes with friends on to various social networks while reading a book.

Available from the App Store to download/update.
