According to the iTunes store description, the updated app (version 3.0) offers:
– New library design – view your content in a new, updated look and feel. iPhone users can now choose to view their library in grid view.
– Cloud view – easily access all of your content in the cloud in a simple, combined view.

According to a press announcement we received from PR firm The OutCast Agency which is working with Amazon:
– The redesigned app is optimized for the high resolution iPad display. Customers reading on the new iPad will find crisper fonts and a new library view where covers look brighter and crisper than ever.
– Kindle Fire and Kindle Cloud Reader customers say they love being able to easily switch between viewing their content that is stored locally and that which is stored in the cloud. With the new Kindle for iPad app, Amazon is bringing this same navigation to Kindle for iPad. At the top of the home screen, customers will see an option to easily switch between “Device” and “Cloud.” All customers, including those reading on iPad 1 or 2, iPhone or iPod touch, will receive this new re-designed interface.
– With the touch optimized store for iPad, customers can easily shop the Kindle Store and purchase new content to read in their Kindle app. Customers simply visit www.amazon.com/kindlestoreforipad in their Safari browser to discover a vast selection of books, magazines and newspapers. Customers can even create a bookmark on the iPad home screen to easily launch the new touch optimized store.
– All of the new features Amazon has launched in the last few months will still be available on Kindle for iPad, including the ability to open personal PDF files in the Kindle app by opening them from Mail or Safari or sending them to the Amazon Cloud.
