Amazon has pushed out an update for its Kindle App for iPad and iPhone that takes the most amazing book reading application to version 2.5. The App now completely optimizes the iOS background capabilities and allows you to download a book in the background while you spend time on some other App.

Another major addition to the App is the ability to open supported files from Mail or Safari or any other compatible App using the Kindle App. It also now supports File Sharing, so you can use iTunes to transfer supported file types from your computer to your iOS device.
