Amazon Kindle is the world’s most popular e-reader. There are many new features and enhancements to make the product even better. It would be nice to have reading stats and Kindle Challenges built in. These are currently only available within the Kindle app for Android and iOS. Kindle Vella Stories are available only on the website. Having these serials on Kindle would also be a good move as it would reach a wider audience. Are there any new features or bug fixes you’d like to see from Kindle?
We hope to add some features to Kindle, such as Audible audiobooks in more markets. I live in Canada and Audible is one of the best audiobook stores and has the largest market share. However, you cannot listen to audiobooks you have already purchased or make new purchases by logging into an Amazon account that is also paired with your Audible account. For some reason, Amazon doesn’t let you connect Bluetooth headphones, and the Kindle Bookstore doesn’t have an audiobook section. Many other countries are in similar boats. Is Canada just a low priority for Amazon based on our population?
Immersion reading, auto-dark mode, improved layout for lefties? How to disable the touchscreen completely? What about the new Kindle Scribe? This electronic notebook needs a better writing system. E-book edits cannot be synced to any app or Kindle Cloud Reader. There is no pressure sensitivity above 5, but the pen supports 4096 degrees.
