The Kindle app has been available on the iPhone platform for a while now, but no one knew for sure when the Kindle app would be available on the Android platform. As of today, the Kindle Android app is finally available in the Android Market and it comes with the latest and greatest features. You can search for the Kindle app among other Android Apps using the Market and searching for “Kindle.”
Users can purchase or sample books from the Kindle store. In case you own the actual Kindle device, or an iPod Touch, for example, you can sync bookmarked pages and annotations between devices via Whispersync. Text can be read in portrait and landscape mode, and as an added convenience, you can adjust the size of the text to make it easier on the eyes. Any materials purchased on the Android app will also be available for reading on a computer, Kindle, or device with a Kindle app. Unfortunately, newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not yet available on the Android app.
Lastly, the Kindle app for Android requires a device running Android 1.6 or higher. While most devices running a higher version of Android, some Android users will be left out. The app will be available for free in the Android Market, but purchasing books will obviously cost a little bit of money depending on the length and whether it is a best seller or not.
