Kindle for iOS Will Now Read to You

Kindle for iPad_2

Nobody reads to me anymore. It’s kind of a bummer. That all ends when you’re like…seven, maybe even before that. Luckily, Amazon has updated its Kindle app to read for you.

This is great for people who like to just lie back and enjoy the story. Sometimes, I do this with audiobooks to better absorb the story. I will listen to it as I close my eyes and watch it play out in my head. This is also a useful feature for folks who are visually-impaired. A few weeks ago, I became very sick with a high fever and horrible headaches. Listening to a story as I lied half-dead on the couch would have been at least a little less miserable. Either way, you get the idea.

Here’s what’s new in the latest Kindle for iOS update:

What’s New in Version 3.7

• Accessibility features make it easier for blind and visually impaired customers to navigate their Kindle libraries, read & interact with books, and more. Enable VoiceOver in your device settings to begin.
