Amazon Adds X-Ray Searches with New Kindle for iOS Update
Amazon today updated its Kindle for iOS app to version 3.5, adding X-Ray for books. With X-Ray, users can see detailed information on plot ideas, characters, and locations within novels.
From the app description:
The feature is backed by Wikipedia and Shelfari, which is described as Amazon's community-powered encyclopedia for book lovers. iOS 5 is required for the 3.5 update, which can be downloaded from the App Store.

I've used it on my Kindle Paperwhite to look up information on a character when he/she was introduced many pages ago in a book. It's useful for me because I tend to forget who a character is when he/she re-appears in the story.
That said, I prefer reading on the Kindle Paperwhite. But, it's nice that the Kindle app has this feature as well.
