Flash! Kindle for Android updated, new features

You don’t need a Kindle to read Kindle store books.

You can get a free “reader app” and read them on a PC, a Mac, an iPad, an iPhone, an iPod touch, a Blackberry, and Android devices.

Those readers don’t have all the features of the Kindle (including the reflective E Ink screen, text-to-speech, and some Kindle store items), but they are being improved over time.

In this

press release

Amazon announces updates to the Android version.

  • You will now be able to search within your books by text…or voice.  The latter is interesting: that might be one of the uses for the currently inactive microphone on the K3s. 
  • “Seamless” Wikipedia look up
  • Locking landscape/portrait orientation
  • Look up book descriptions in Shelfari (a readers’ social networking site owned by Amazon)
  • Add, edit, and delete notes and highlights, and sync them to other devices on your account

Customers who already have the app should get the update automatically.
