The new app also includes the ability to switch easily between content stored on their device and content stored in the cloud.
Kindle for iPad users also have access to Amazon’s touch-optimized Kindle Store, which they access from their Safari browser. The Kindle app also includes several features Amazon has launched in recent months, including the ability to open PDFs from Safari or the Mail app, as well as send them to the cloud.
