Amazon has a new update for the old Kindle Paperwhite model. The software update includes several general improvements including highlighted search terms, dictionary options, and easier word search. Here is the details according to Amazon:
- Search terms highlighted in search results
- When you search for a word or phrase within a book, the search terms will appear highlighted within the search results. When you tap a result to go to that location in the book, the search terms will appear highlighted on the page.
- Select other dictionaries when looking up a word
- When you look up a word in the dictionary, you can choose to look up the word in other dictionaries on your device from within the dictionary definition window.
- View other definitions of a word
- When you look up a word that has multiple meanings for the same spelling (homonym), you can navigate through each of the available definitions from within the dictionary definition window.
You can download the update manually or wait for the over-the-air update to get installed automatically when you connect to the Internet.
