Kindle App Makes Progress May 26th, 2009

Last month, I wrote about Four Ways eReader Beats Kindle on the iPhone. It looks like the 1.1 release of the Kindle iPhone app addresses the first of those four ways.

They now let you select between portrait or landscape mode. It lets you turn pages by tapping or swiping. And, it lets you change the background and text colors a bit.

I’m not terribly fond of its mechanism for letting you lock in landscape or portrait mode, but at least you can do it now. And, I don’t have free range on color choices, but at least I have some choice.

I hope they tackle my other three points in later releases.
