Amazon Updates Kindle Android App Making it More Like Kindle Fire

Amazon has updated the Kindle Android app giving it a new design and a new user interface that makes it more like the Kindle Fire.

The update optimizes the Kindle Store experience including a new library interface, a redesigned home screen, and a simpler navigation. The app now features a carousel display of recent items that the user has accessed on their Kindle app home screen. The new navigation panel organizes content so that users can jump between eBooks, and Newsstand periodicals. It also makes it easier to navigate between content that is downloaded on the app and content that is in the cloud.

The update also makes it easier for users to access to eBook samples. New users will be encouraged to explore free sample chapters for current bestsellers on the app’s home screen.
