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...

Amazon Kindle for Windows Phone 7 now available

After having announced plans to deliver tablet-specific versions of their Kindle app for both Android and Windows earlier today, Amazon's Windows Phone 7 app has quietly appeared in the Zune Marketplace. As is the case with Kindle on other mobile platforms, Kindle for WP7 supports in-app purchases from Amazon's extensive catalog. To customize your reading experience, you can choose five...

Amazon unveiling new, better Kindle Web app tomorrow

When we first got a look at Amazon's Kindle Web app, it wasn't too exciting -- the embeddable viewer offered only one-chapter glimpses at select titles. Tomorrow, however, Amazon will release an update to Kindle for the Web, and it's going to offer a much-improved reading experience. The new Kindle for the Web will compete directly with Google's new eBookstore, which just launched in the U.S....

Kobo desktop app released, not quite up to Kindle or Calibre standards

The Kobo eReader doesn't get quite the same level of attention as Amazon's Kindle, but it's still a nice little device. Now, there's an equally nice desktop companion app, which supports not only the Kobo, but just about any other e-reader on the market. Like the Kindle desktop software, Kobo lets you make purchases and read your e-book collection. The Kobo bookstore has loads of titles for...

Kindle for Android will arrive this summer, with in-app book buying

Amazon's getting ready to go to war with Apple and the iPad in the e-book market, and it's about to bring out the big guns. Kindle for Android will reportedly launch this summer, with a feature that other mobile Kindle apps (including Kindle for iPad and iPhone, ahem) don't have: the ability to buy books directly from the app. The iPhone and iPad apps would have that ability, too, but Apple...

Google Editions scores deals with "nearly all" U.S. publishers

Although details about Google's forthcoming digital bookstore, Google Editions, are still hazy, at least we now know that it's going to have a huge number of books. Google has said that "nearly all" U.S. publishers will be included in the bookstore. Over 20,000 publishers and individual authors will be part of Editions, accounting for 2 million of the projected 4 million books on the site. The...

Kindle jumps onto social network bandwagon with Twitter and Facebook features

With Kindle 2.5, Amazon has tossed its popular eBook reader onto the social networking bandwagon. In case you're someone who can't read without sharing what you're reading, you'll now have a few ways to Twitterize and Facebook up your book experience directly from the Kindle: tweet about interesting passages, or post them on Facebook. I don't know how useful these features are going to be to...

Amazon previews the Kindle eReader for iPad and tablets

With the iPad launch just weeks away, it's no surprise that Amazon has started showing off the big-screen version of its Kindle app, designed for the iPad and other tablets. Kindle for iPad is more than just an upsized version of the iPhone app we already know and love: the reading experience has been optimized for the iPad, and the app includes new ways to sort and view your book collection, as...

Calibre e-Book app can now convert books to Nook format

Calibre is one of the best free e-book apps out there. It's cross-platform, and it supports almost any e-book format you can think of. Calibre's latest trick is converting books to and from EPUB and PDB formats that work on Barnes and Noble's Nook e-reader. Version 0.6.27 of the app introduces this new feature, and it should turn at least a few Nook users on to how useful Calibre is. Calibre...

Amazon Kindle app coming soon for BlackBerry and Mac

After coming to the iPhone and then to Windows desktops, Amazon's Kindle e-reader app is scheduled to conquer the BlackBerry next. Despite all the hype about the iPhone and new Android devices, BlackBerry is still one of the most popular smartphones out there, so this represents a significant new market for Amazon. There hasn't been a big announcement about the BlackBerry app, but the San...

Major publishers collaborating on "Hulu for magazines"

Major magazine publishers know they're in trouble. Mags have been shutting down all over the place during the past year, and the rise of blogs and eReaders continues apace. A group of publishers including Conde Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp., and Time Inc. has combined to launch a digital delivery system for magazines that has been compared to both iTunes and the popular streaming TV site...

Eucalyptus eBook reader recovers from silly app store rejection

Eucalyptus, a gorgeous eBook reader for the iPhone, was initially rejected from Apple's application store for the most absurd of reasons. See, Eucalyptus' extensive library of great literature comes from Project Gutenberg, an open source book project, and one of the books in Gutenberg's library is The Kama Sutra. Apple apparently objected to this during the review process, despite the fact that...

eReader Pro for Palm and Windows Mobile is now free

The eReader eBook reader for Palm and Windows Mobile devices has a long and storied history. It started out its life as Peanut Reader before getting a less nutty sounding name. And while eReader hasn't had a major update in the last few years, it's still one of the better eBook applications for PDAs and phones, with support for purchasing and downloading books in the eReader format directly from...
