New Kindle App 1.2 Update Allows Notes and Synch

Wow. Pretty Cool. Update your iPhone or Touch to 1.2. Tap and hold any word and you will be given the option to highlight it or create a note. They will then synch with Whispernet to your Kindle.

Nice feature!

I can't use the Kindle app because I'm too used to having both "left side tap" and "right side tap" set as page forward in Stanza. I rarely ever go page back, and Stanza lets me swipe when I have to. Hopefully they'll give us more control at some point.

I haven't tried many books in the Kindle app (2-3 free ones), does it support multiple typefaces/styles?

Not a fan? That's cool. This is just a heads up for a nice new feature very well implemented imho. It takes advantage of the cut and paste feature (for selecting in this case that is) that Apple seems to have really nailed.
