Amazon Announces Library Lending for Kindle, Optimizes Android App for Honeycomb
Amazon has rolled out a new version of their Kindle application today, optimizing it for Honeycomb tablets. Taking advantage of the fragments and split screen capabilities in Android3.0, the free reader app works much better on larger screens. New details include enhanced work look-up, ability to pause and resume downloads, and of course bug fixes. Look for v126.96.36.199 in the Android market today!
Yesterday saw Amazon announcing a new partnership with OverDrive to bring digital library book lending to your Kindle device and applications later this year. This deal will see more than 11,000 local libraries participating, providing users with the ability to borrow library titles and even use WhisperSync notes in the margins. There is no indication as to when this will roll out but we’re anxious to see what kind of titles are available.
