Amazon has just announced an update for the Kindle app that will optimize the app when running it on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablets. The app now takes full advantage of the larger screens found on tablets as opposed to the previous app that was designed to work on tiny phones.
Kindle for Android tablets will feature a new layout for newspapers and magazines designed for the Honeycomb interface, and includes many other features that work better on larger displays. In addition to working better on tablets, the core features of Kindle are there – Whispersync technology that allows users to pick up a book where they left off when reading on another device i.e. start a book on your phone in the train, and go home to continue on your tablet in bed etc. Other new features include: a seamless and integrated shopping experience, refined newspaper and magazine layout including full color images, ability to pause and resume downloads at any time, an enhanced word look-up capability with a built-in dictionary that contains over 250,000 entries and definitions.
