UPDATE: The new Kindle app for Android now supports KF8, Amazon’s proprietary e-book format that is much like EPUB3.
Digital Book Wire received the following note from an Amazon press representative detailing that Amazon has updated its Kindle app for Android:
I wanted to let you know that Amazon just updated Kindle for Android. The update brings access to illustrated children’s books, comic books, and graphic novels with full color and beautiful illustrations. You can access over 1000 children’s titles such as Brown Bear and Curious George along with popular comics including Batman, Superman and many more.
You can also now email personal documents to your “Send-to-Kindle” email address and the documents will be delivered to Kindle for Android and automatically archived in the Amazon Cloud where they will be available for re-download. Just like Kindle books, Whispersync automatically syncs your notes, highlights and last page read for personal documents. Kindle for Android is available for free from the Amazon Appstore for Android and Google Play. You can learn more about Kindle for Android at www.amazon.com/kindleforandroid.
