The Kindle App for Android updatea v188.8.131.52 is quite a big update that offers added access to a much larger assortment of richly illustrated Kindle books and allows you to email personal documents to your Send-to-Kindle e-mail address -- Amazon delivers them to your device and automatically archives the documents.
Thanks for Twitter alerts sent by Elias Zuniga and Corneliu Dascalu.
Supported formats for personal documents, including non-Amazon books:
PDF, MOBI, HTML, DOC, TXT and PRC
The free Kindle for Android now supports the new Kindle Format 8 (KF8) - HTML5, with access to popular comics like Batman, Superman and many more, plus over 1000 illustrated children's titles, including Brown Bear and Curious George. It brings richer formatting capabilities to thousands of other Kindle titles, and now Android device users can select from multiple dictionary languages when looking up definitions in Kindle books.
Access to over 100 newspapers and magazines is included with no Kindle required, but if you have a Kindle, the Whispersync technology syncs last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across various devices.
The update can be downloaded from the Amazon Android Appstore or from Google Play (formerly Android Market).
