Amazon have updated the Android Kindle app (the iOS version was also updated today) which adds support for Kindle Format 8 and a large selection of illustrated children’s books. According to Amazon they have also added Send-to-Kinde where you can email documents to your Kindle account and view them on Kindle devices, to be honest I thought you could do that already I have used it with an actual Kindle device in the past.

You can get the app from Google Play

What’s New

What’s in this version:

  1. •Support for Kindle Format 8 and a larger assortment of illustrated children’s books, comic books, and graphic novels. Shop for over 1000 children’s titles such as Brown Bear and Curious George, and comics such as Batman and Superman. Plus, richer formatting in thousands of other Kindle titles.
  2. •Email documents to your new Send-to-Kindle e-mail address and we deliver them to your device. Documents are archived in the Amazon Cloud and can be re-downloaded to supported Kindle devices and apps.
