Android owners rejoice! Amazon is finally releasing an Android app to compliment those for iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry. Like the existing apps, you’ll be able to purchase and read Kindle books from within the app. Plus, the app will sync your existing Kindle books, the last page read, and annotations, just like the other apps.
This is great news as apps from the major eBook stores has been slow to come to the Android platform. There’s not yet a Barnes & Noble app, and Kobo Book’s Android app is still from the Smashwords days and hasn’t been updated recently. I probably shouldn’t hold my breath for an iBooks app, either, I suppose.
There’s no official date yet for the launch. But if you’re eager and don’t want to wait a second longer than you have to, you can sign up to get a notification when the app is ready.
