Choosing between reading an ebook on your own or having it read to you just got a little easier: Amazon updated its Kindle reading app with Audible integration on Tuesday. You’ll have to pay a little extra for the professional narration but you won’t have to switch between the Kindle and Audible apps if you want to hear your book aloud. Amazon’s Whispersync for Voice function keeps track of your place regardless of whether you or an in-app narrator is reading. Amazon says the updated Kindle app is now available for both iOS and Android devices.

  1. This is great for the blind. A lot of people are not able to read on their own.

  2. I sort of doubt that blind people already own the Kindle app.
