Amazon has updates its Kindle app for iOS devices adding support for displaying real page numbers in Kindle books. When reading supported books from the Kindle Store, Kindle 2.6 can now display page numbers corresponding to the print edition of the book, allowing users to make proper citations from the Kindle app or follow along with people reading the print editions. The new version also allows users to view the percentage of the book read on the iPhone and displays progress through books on the home screen. Users can also now lookup words on Google and Wikipedia without leaving the Kindle app. Kindle 2.6 is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.

I see the “Shop in Kindle Store” link is still in place.  Wonder how long that will hold?
