Amazon Kindle, Evernote updated for new iPad

Two popular iOS apps have just been updated to take advantage of the new iPad's 2048x1536 display. The Evernote (free, App Store) update to version 4.1.9 and Kindle (free, App Store) version 3.0 both have been upscaled for the greater resolution, though there are other changes too. The Kindle app also gets a new library design and a Cloud view that shows what content users have stored in the cloud and locally. The iPhone app will get a choice of a grid view, and the update is 18.3MB in size.

The Evernote update includes checkboxes that support indentation, with new lines after a checkbox automatically inserting a box. Another fresh feature is a Note title suggestion that lets users tap the title to view suggested note titles. The suggestions are changed and refined as users type, like Google's search bar. A number of bug fixes and performance improvements have also been made, and text editing is said to be significantly updated as well. It arrives 19MB in size.

The updates are some of the first arriving for the new iPad, and are larger in file size as well largely due to the higher resolution, though these ones aren't the most space-hungry to come. Games and other art-heavy apps should take noticeably more space.
