ComiXology took to Twitter today to announce updates to their customer reading experience today on the Kindle app. It’s just one of a number of updates they’ve made over the last few months since ComiXology.com retired and was moved to Amazon.com.
Here’s a rundown of the updates:
- Beta now supports double-page spreads.
- web reading Beta now includes zoom (Double click to zoom)
- Beta also supports vertical scroll
- Guided view launching later this year
Finally, users can switch from the beta to the current format at any time.
ComiXology has seen quite a few changes over the year, including Head of Content Chip Mosher stepping down and Bryce Gold taking over to lead the Comixology Originals program. ComiXology co-founder/CEO David Steinberger also stepped down from ComiXology in March. In fact, Steinberger has left Amazon.com as is noted in his June 20th tweet.
