Amazon Kindle Connect Mobile App


Amazon Kindle wanted to add a social aspect to their Kindle application for iPhones and iPads. The main reason is "People love to discuss what they are reading!"


I was part of a  team who created  a community that lives inside the Kindle application called Kindle Connect. People can share books, quotes, or comments with other Kindle application users in a network they create. Kindle Connect focuses on control of sharing based on casual or professional reading.  I focused on interaction, graphics, and icon creation.
