Foyles Launches eBook Apps

Kindle and Kobo aren’t the only names in the UK eBook market. Earlier this week the London based bookseller Foyles released a pair of new reading apps for iOS and Android.

The apps were developed by txtr, and they’re integrated with Foyles eBookstore, where readers can choose from over 200,000 eBooks, including leading titles from major publishers. The Android app has an eBookstore built-in, and the iOS app allows readers to download previously purchased titles. Both apps also allow readers to side load Epub eBooks that hve been downloaded from elsewhere.

The apps are available in iTunes and the Android Market. There’s no word on whether Foyles plans to release an eReader, though.
