New features in Kindle 4.5 for iPhone and iPad
- Kindle Today Widget (iOS 8 only) – Multi-book readers can now surf between books from anywhere on the device by pulling down the `Today’ view and tapping on one of the three titles in the Kindle Widget. They can choose from their most recently opened library titles, like the `jump’ function on a TV remote.
- Copy & Paste – Ability to copy passages from your books and add them to the iOS clipboard for pasting into a text message, e-mail, social media, or other iOS applications outside of Kindle.
- Smart Lookup Translation Card – Authors often include phrases in other languages to add depth or meaning to a story. Readers can now get a full understanding by selecting the word or phrase and viewing the translation card.
