The sliding menu bar on the left makes for an overall slick Kindle interface.

More options

Long-pressing a book brings up more options. One that I like is Shelfari Book Extras, which shows you community-curated factoids about your reading material.

Send to Kindle

With the Send to Kindle feature, you can view documents or images right from within the app. This feature can also be used to save articles from around the Web for reading later, a la Pocket or Instapaper.
