Kindle4PC Update Adds Touchscreen Support & Page Numbers

Amazon released a new update for the Kindle4PC reading app on Friday. The new version adds support for page numbers, popular highlights, and better touchscreen support on Win7 tablets.

  • Real Page Numbers
    See real page numbers for thousands of books in the Kindle Store. Now you can easily reference and cite passages, and read alongside others in a book club or class.
  • Popular Highlights
    See what our community of Kindle readers think are the most interesting passages in your books.  If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book.
  • Touch for Windows 7 Tablets
    Enjoy a touch-friendly interface on Windows 7 tablet computers.

This app was last updated back in November when Amazon added dictionary support, a multi-column reading mode, and better library management.

  • Use the built-in dictionary to seamlessly look up the definitions of  English words without interrupting your reading.
  • Read in the standard one-column mode or take advantage of a larger screen with a multi-column view, which will automatically adjust according to your screen size. [ Very slick. ]
  • Choose whether you’d like to browse your library in a tile view or in a list view.
