Kindle News: Quell: free Android App today. Kindle Touch 3G rave, Your Annotations web page

Another free Android App?  Yes, because this is a Quality One

As you know, I don't blog about 99% of the free Android apps for the Kindle Fire, but Quell is a strangely calming and beautiful game which is more a set of zen-like puzzles.  Sound and Music are controlled separately.

This is normally only 99c anyway, and is it a new thing that there are sponsors for the free App of the Day?  Today, at the Appstore for Android, the ad for it says, "Presented by the Toyota prius C"... This doesn't show up on the product page, just on the store page.

  The Amazon intro there: "...an atmospheric puzzler.  This critically acclaimed game includes more than 80 levels of ingenious puzzles, gorgeous graphics, and a stunning [not booming] soundtrack.  Play as a raindrop and collect pearls in as few moves as possible.  Completing a puzzle unlocks the next."
  It has 1,810 customer reviews and averages 4.8 stars out of 5

Kindle Touch 3G eBook reader "might just be the most compelling global eBook reader..."
  The Calgary Herald story is somewhat short on details as to why that might be.  Many Kindle Touch owners would agree for many reasons we've mentioned, but the article gives two good reasons (besides listing the usual features), and those are:
  .  the added cellular network 3G access so that people don't have to depend on WiFi in the home or wherever they are, to download a book or to access Wikipedia (the latter I do think would be compelling for students or the ever curious) and
  .  "the Kindle Touch is now available in seven languages - German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and American or British English - so customers can read, take notes, and navigate their Kindle in any of these languages."

Your personal book annotations web page at Amazon
Some may not know about http://kindle.amazon.com, the personal web page Amazon makes for the web version of your book annotations and the organization that's there.
  It's also a burgeoning social network area now too, with people able to follow the notes and highlights of those who want to share theirs.

For detailed information on what the annotations area of that page is about, see
Web Kindle Tool for Books Purchased from Amazon.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the 'blogger.com' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
