Amazon has published a useful update for its Kindle iOS app on the App Store this morning, and changes come in the form of two new features. Now, users of the e-book application can enjoy accessing a Table of Contents from its left-hand navigation pane, and X-Ray Smart Look-Up support has been added to the free app, too.
As of Kindle 4.2, a Table of Contents can indeed be accessed “from the left panel navigation menu from within most books,” according to Amazon, and chapter headings and page numbers are displayed here. “Curious readers can tap a chapter to navigate directly to that part of the book,” the developer explains in the app’s release notes.

More useful, however, is the Kindle app’s new X-Ray Smart Look-Up feature. Amazon continues:
Look up Amazon exclusive X-Ray information without ever leaving the page. Select a word or name and learn more about the concept, person, or place in the Info Card provided at the bottom of the page.
This feature is exclusive to Amazon’s Kindle e-readers, and as such we’re pleased to see X-Ray Smart Look-Up reach iOS in this way.
