Amazon Kindle adds ComiXology Guided View, searches through your notes and highlighted text

There's a small but neat little change in the Amazon Kindle app on Android: you can now not only search for words inside the book you're reading, but you can also search for what you've personally added as a note (like in the screenshot above). Words included in sentences and paragraphs you've highlighted will also show on top of all search results (screenshot below). This makes it easier to find a sentence you've highlighted in the book or a note you've written about a specific section or sentence.

Kindle App Updated To 4.6, Brings Immersive Mode, Lockscreen Audio Controls, And More

If you're heavily invested in Amazon's book ecosystem, then you're probably an avid Kindle user. If you also happen to use Google Books, then you've probably noticed that Amazon's offering is lacking many of the features that make Books so good, like immersive mode. Well, Amazon stepped up its game today with a Kindle app update that brings that and much more:

4.6.0

  • Read books in immersive full-screen mode (Android OS 4.4+)
  • Tap the bottom right corner of a page to lock orientation
  • Control playback from the lock screen while audio is playing in the book
  • Choose system brightness in reader settings
  • Navigate table of contents by sub chapter
  • Pair with Bluetooth devices (Permission)

Sources Confirm To The Verge That An Amazon Smartphone Is Coming, May Be Announced Tomorrow

After Motorola's big event today, we didn't figure much of anything else interesting would be going on. We were wrong - numerous sources have confirmed to TheVerge that Amazon is legitimately, actually working on a smartphone. We totally pretended to call it.

Those same sources say that Amazon's phone is yet to be totally finished, but that we may see a prototype tomorrow at Amazon's event in Los Angeles. They've also confirmed it runs a variant of an expected-to-be-announced Android 4.0-based Kindle Fire OS, which makes sense. That means no Google services, which definitely would put it at a disadvantage compared to, well, almost everything on the market.
