Kindle App For Android Update – Cool Stuff!

kindle for androidYesterday, Amazon released a brand new version of its Kindle for Android app with some very cool new features!

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
  • 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!

    Yes, it’s very handy to have all my books with me at all times, even when my Kindle is left at home. What is unfortunate about the android app is that it doesn’t read books aloud.
