Kindle App Adds Children’s Books, Comics & Graphic Novels

Amazon has released an update to its iOS, Cloud Reader and Android apps, adding support for children’s books, comics and graphic novels.

Check it out: “Children’s books come to life with brilliant images, fixed layouts, and Kindle Text Pop-Up for supported titles to magnify text for easy reading on any size screen. Comics and graphic novels are presented in Kindle Panel View for supported titles, showcasing the artwork in a panel by panel experience that reads as the author intended. Over 1000 children’s and comic book titles in full color are now available on Kindle Fire, Kindle for Android, Kindle for iPad, and Kindle Cloud Reader.”

The update will compete directly with Barnes & Noble’s Nook apps and Nook devices, which are designed especially for reading children’s books and comics.
