Tears of joy

And there shall be dancing in the streets!

The Kindle for iPad app finally has expanded text-size choices, which I've been begging on my weeping knees for, both here and to Amazon. The choices are, count 'em, doubled from six to twelve. Wunderbar!

And, further, there are now four fonts to choose from. Not a great number, but a big step up from one, and it includes two of the most important ones for screen reading: Georgia and Verdana. (They are most important for older devices without the modern super-high resolution of iPad 3, they were designed for readability on low resolution.)

Now, if they would just add collection management. Having all books in one big group is not exactly ideal.

Yes. Just like fonts/sizes, that's another of those WTF things. They are doing the most amazing things, one should think they could find a way to fulfil "everybody"'s wish, organizing the books on the server.

Though I admit that the relatively new Find option in the iPad app helps a *lot*. (I hope the Paperwhite has that.)
