Amazon Kindle for iOS Finally Supports Split View Multitasking on iPad


Amazon has updated their Kindle iOS app to now support multitasking for iPad users, as Split View is now supported.

Kindle split view

Split View works for those with an iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 4. It was launched back in September 2015 with iOS 9.

The update also brings continuous scrolling—which let you browse your book “just like a web page”. It can be enabled via the app’s Settings and turned on or off from the “Aa” menu within your book.

Another feature brings ‘pull down to refresh’ for your library list, while Kindle dictionaries now support Arabic.

    Split View is pretty cool!
    I recently used it on my iPad Pro to display Safari and Pages side-by-side on the screen. I was then able to select text in the web page on Safari and drag the selected text into a Pages document. It would have been very long and tedious to do that without Split View (when you have a lot of text to copy and paste).
