Kindle app now has voice search, and Flickr’s Android app has been upgraded for 2.2 support. Kindle’s extra features include annotations and highlight text, as well as Shelfari integration for social recommendations and book clubs.
Amazon’s done well to maintain an array of apps on Android, even if some do receive such feature upgrades later than iPhone users. The Amazon Kindle is still the only Android e-Reader with such a full range of features, proving the influence of the Kindle brand. In support of Amazon’s claims of early success with its Kindle device, a report from GigaOm Pro validates the company’s boastful numbers.
Flickr users can get snappy, with 2.2 capabilities for direct upload. The Flickr mobile website works beautifully with Android devices running Froyo, thanks to the optimization Flickr has done. It’s quite exciting to see more interaction features for web use in more advanced phones.
