Amazon has released version 1.5.1 of its popular Kindle app for Mac OS X. This update includes tweaks to the user interface and built-in dictionary to support the German language, the capability of displaying “real” page numbers for Kindle books that include them, and the capability to view passages that have been highlighted by other Kindle users. The Kindle app now also allows you to consult the built-in dictionary without leaving your book. The update is available through Amazon’s Web site; although the Kindle app can also be downloaded from the Mac App Store, the version there appears to be behind by several releases. (Free, 26.6 MB)
