The Kindle app has gone through a number of redesigns, but its finally settling into a nice Android vibe. The newest update doesn't radically change anything, but it does add some useful features and squash a few bugs that have probably been annoying you.

Here's the changelog from version 4.4, which should be live for everyone now.

  • Font choices
  • Faster cover loading
  • Auto-brightness controls
  • Easy access to table of contents in the book
  • Fixed sensitivity of volume button page turning

The faster cover loading does not appear to be a lie – the app seems noticeably faster now. The auto-brightness control is hugely appreciated as well. No longer will you have to change the system setting when you want to mess with the in-app brightness. The table of contents is now available in the slide-out navigation bar, which makes it much faster to hop to different chapters. Overall, it's a great update for the more bookish among you.
