Amazon has released an update to its Kindle app for iOS devices adding newspaper and magazine support and removing direct access to the Kindle Store from within the app. Kindle 2.8 allows users to read over 100 newspapers and magazines on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad complete with high resolution colour images. Users can purchase individual newspaper and magazine issues from the Kindle Store or subscribe to have each edition delivered automatically. Recent newspaper and magazine editions from subscriptions or recent purchases can also be downloaded from the Archived items section. The new version also introduces integration with Facebook and Twitter allowing users to share quotes and passages from what they’re reading. Notably, with this latest update the Kindle Store button has also been removed from within the app in order to comply with Apple’s new policies on in-app purchases and subscriptions. Kindle for iOS devices is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.

Just for the sake of convenience, I opened the Kindle Store under 2.7 and bookmarked it in Safari before I updated. When is Apple going to get the memo: Amazon isn’t kicking their butt in ePrint sales because they had a URL link in their iOS app, it’s that they’ve delivered on a convenient “Buy once, read anywhere” business model.
