Amazon updates its Kindle app to support Retina display
Somewhat ironically, when New York Times Tech writer David Pogue wrote in today's paper about the Retina display on the new Apple iPad, he said that after viewing the "freakishly sharp text in Mail and Safari, you'll be disappointed in the relatively crude type in, for example, the non-updated Amazon Kindle app." And while Pogue noted that an update to support Retina display is "in the works," the irony is that we can now tell you that the update is complete and can be downloaded for free from the App Store.

Yes, Amazon has announced that it has updated its Kindle app to support the Retina display on the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. But Amazon didn't stop there. No siree Bob. The online retailer and manufacturer also changed the library design which now allows you to switch back and forth between cloud view, which shows all of your purchases, and device view. The latter shows only those titles that you have downloaded to your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad.

We have to give Amazon a big thumbs up for anticipating the release of the Retina display enabled iPad and getting the update out in time.

Why wouldn't it get the update... this isn't news.
