Alongside the release of the latest iPad, Amazon has updated its Kindle iOS app. Via the update Amazon is aiming to take advantage of the beefed-up resolution of the new iPad's display.

With the update comes crisp fonts, a new library view, and the ability to easily switch between locally-stored books and their cloud-based counterparts.

Of course, the biggest news is the increased font sharpness, which should make the experience of reading on Amazon's Kindle app far more pleasant than it would otherwise.

Moves like things are something we are sure to see a lot of in the coming weeks. Of course, with the updates are certain to come increases in the file sizes of most apps. So perhaps the transition is bittersweet.
