Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.

Amazon has introduced a new Page Flip feature for its Kindle e-readers and the Kindle apps for iOS and Android, although it doesn’t appear in the Mac version. Page Flip is designed to let you save your place so you can quickly flip elsewhere in the book and then back, much as you would do by holding your spot in a paper book with a finger. Page Flip also includes a contact sheet mode that Amazon is calling a “bird’s eye view.” The Page Flip feature is available only in books that have it enabled, although Amazon claims that’s “millions of books” — supported books have a “Page Flip: Enabled” tag in their listings.
