    ...why did the Kindle app need an update to make the text within books look Retina-sharp? Web pages, etc, look terrific on the Retina display, I assume because the iPad is supposed to "retinise" text automatically...

    The text may have done this automatically, but the rest of the app (graphics and interface elements) were not and would need to be updated anyway

    It should generally, Amazon must have done something funky and didn't use Apple's font/text API. Maybe created their own.

    Its an unknown.

    I noticed also that blue fire reader (and I think nook app) were not showing crisp text.

    In the Kindle app, it didn't, the text looked horrific pre-update...
