Sony Reader app for Android now available

Sony had promised an Android companion app for its eBook store in January 2011, and it's delivered. You can now find Sony Reader in the Android Market, ready to pocket-size your digital tomes previously purchased from the Reader Store.

Like other eBook apps, Sony Reader allows you to adjust the font size and brightness, and supports bookmarking and highlighting. Tap the bottom of the reading window and a slider appears which you can move to skip ahead or back. You can also jump between bookmarks and highlighted passages, and Reader offers a decent built-in search function as well. As an added bonus for owners of a Sony Reader Daily Edition, you can keep your Android device and e-ink reading on the same page, as it were.

An iOS version is also in the works, though Sony's mobile app page says only that it's "coming soon." Sony Reader for Android is a free download and is available now from the Android Market.
