Amazon releases updated Kindle for Android application
Posted on 24-Sep-2010 07:36 | Tags Filed under: News



Amazon.com, Inc. has released an update for its free Kindle for Android application. Kindle for Android allows users to read Kindle books on their Android-powered devices.

With the newest update, Kindle for Android now enables customers to search the full text of Kindle books by voice or text, seamlessly look up words and phrases in Wikipedia, lock screen orientation in portrait or landscape mode, and view details about a book on Shelfari, the books-focused social networking site without leaving the app.

Additionally, Kindle for Android allows readers to add notes and highlights to books, and have them automatically synchronized between devices.

The app is available from Android Market and customers who have already downloaded the app will receive the update automatically.

"Customers tell us they love the freedom and flexibility of our Buy Once, Read Everywhere approach because they always have their full reading library at their fingertips and never lose their place in a book--whether they are reading on a Kindle or one of their other favorite devices," said Dorothy Nicholls, Director, Amazon Kindle. "We're excited to see our customers' positive response to the Kindle for Android app and we think that customers are going to enjoy the updates we've made."

The Search within the book feature allows customers to either type or speak a word or phrase to search within a book.
