If you are like me, sometimes you might not have your Kindle with you when an unexpected opportunity to read comes along – in traffic, at work on a break, etc. This is when I love having a Kindle app on my phone.
As an Android user as well, I am happy to see Amazon taking their Android app seriously! Here are some of the cool new features -
- Voice Search
- In-text Search
- Ability to add notes
- Ability to sync notes between devices
- Text highlighting to bring up results from wikipedia and dictionary.com
- Content from Shelfari – Amazon’s book related social network
- Screen lock to avoid unwanted screen rotation
These features make the new Kindle for Android app a fully functional Kindle app, with many of the features found on the iPad/iPhone Kindle app. It still doesn’t replace my Kindle, but it is nice to have when my Kindle isn’t with me! Android owners rejoice!
