Kindle for Android Now Available!
Plenty of people out there have been looking forward to the Kindle eReader app for the Android OS for some time now and the waiting has come to an end. Honestly, it looks really good. Users will find all the usual features they’ve come to expect from the kindle platform, including a great selection, displays in portrait or landscape orientation, multiple text sizes, the ability to bookmark your books, and of course the ever-popular WhisperSync feature for those who move from device to device as their situation demands.
The App can be acquired free of charge by searching for “Kindle” in the Android Market or by scanning the QR Code provided for you on the Kindle for Android page, assuming you have Android OS 1.6 or later on your phone. For situations when you can’t carry your Kindle with you, this seems to be about the best you can get as far as portability goes. Not going to compare this application to the iPhone/iPad parallel, since I don’t have that handy to make any direct comparison, but it seems to be pretty much the same features and experience spread over the less hardware-restrictive landscape of Android. Give it a try and see for yourself!
