kindleappaudioAmazon has updated its Kindle app for iOS devices bringing integration with Audible audiobooks.

The app now allows readers to access more than 45,000 Kindle/ book pairs from directly within the Kindle app.  Previously a reader would have to launch the app in order to listen tothe audiobook.

Whispersync for Voice now automatically syncs a reader’s progress between reading progress between the Audible and Kindle versions of a book. In addition, the app now allows users to read and listen to a Kindle book at the same time.

The Version 4.3 update also brings with it the ability for  students to search for terms in X-Ray for textbooks and then tap a page thumbnail in the X-Ray feature to find the term highlighted in the page of the book.
