Kindle Page Flip Comes to iPad and iPhone — Version 5.0 of Amazon’s Kindle App for iPad and iPhone adds Page Flip, a new and natural way to navigate through books without losing your place. If you’ve ever been frustrated having to flip to see a map or something on another page, Page Flip solves that problem. Just tap in the middle of your screen to activate Page Flip and skim around until you find what you want. When you’re finished looking, tap again and Page Flip will offer to return you to your original spot. Page Flip remembers the locations you have flipped to, allowing for easy bouncing around. The updated Kindle App is available for free in the App Store.

To see our books in iBooks, just type ‘creativetech’ into the search bar of the Store (Mac) or Featured (iOS) section of the iBooks app. Free chapter samples are available on both platforms.]
