Email from Tom on Kindle software updates:
Recent Kindles and Kindle for iOS have had the re-designed ‘Aa settings’ (with Themes and reading settings) for some time now, but Fire’s Kindle app and Kindle for Android have lagged behind. The latest update gives these the same look and feel.
Also it seems the ‘Simplified Home Screen’ feature on Fire tablets is available for 4th generation and later Fire tablets (Running FireOS 5). It’s pretty impressive that 7 year old tablets are still getting updates (including Kindle app updates, Series grouping, etc.).
The Fire and Android Kindle apps are very close cousins. The current versions are 14.40.100 and 8.40.100, respectively (note the identical ‘40.100’ version suffix). They are feature-identical, except that the Fire app has text-to-speech.

Morning Journal flash briefing for Alexa
If you’d like brief daily updates on technology, books, marriage, and puppies, you can follow along with my Morning Journal flash briefing. From your Echo device, just say, “Alexa, enable Morning Journal.” Then each morning say, “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?” I post a five-minute audio journal each day except Sunday, usually by 8:00 am Eastern Time.
