Apple sale de compras y adquiere Texture, un servicio de suscripción a revistas digitales
The competition between mobile services for reading magazines is getting more and more serious. One month after Apple’s acquisition of Texture was confirmed, the Amazon Kindle app for iOS is updated with some useful improvements for those who read Amazon books or magazines on their iPhones or iPads.
One of its main changes is the arrival of a new format for mobiles designed and optimised for reading magazines . The company ensures that this new format is available for titles such as Food Network, Cosmopolitan, Life & Style, Us Weekly and 15 others, to start with.
Of course, that wasn’t the only novelty, even more so since the Amazon Kindle app also offers e-book reading. Therefore, this update will allow users to return books through the app .
In addition, the latest version of this platform, which can be downloaded for free from the App Store, also includes a setting that allows users to enable the highlighted menu to be displayed whenever something is highlighted in the text .
The acquisition recently made by Cupertino’s firm is an important sign of the strength the company is giving to the News theme, since Apple is gradually learning to improve its service as a source of information for users and as a source of income for the media. So, although it has acquired Texture, Apple has significant competition with services such as Amazon Kindle, so there is still a long way to go.
