We just received an email from Amazon letting us know about the latest update to the Kindle for Android app. The biggest new feature is Kindle Format 8 (KF8) support. What is KF8? Here’s how Amazon describes it:
Kindle Format 8 is Amazon’s next generation file format offering a wide range of new features and enhancements – including HTML5 and CSS3 support that publishers can use to create all types of books. KF8 adds over 150 new formatting capabilities, including drop caps, numbered lists, fixed layouts, nested tables, callouts, sidebars and Scalable Vector Graphics – opening up more opportunities to create Kindle books that readers will love.
Along with KF8, Amazon has added access to over 1,000 children’s books and comics, including Batman, Superman, Curious George, and Brown Bear. Also, your Android device can now receive documents from your Email-to-Kindle address directly from the cloud.
