Libri.de’s reading app now available in Germany

Micah Bowers, CEO of Bluefire,  just tweeted about Bluefire's first Android app. Their partner, the German ebookstore Libri.de, have expanded their ebook empire beyond selling ereader and ebooks to include an app.

As you can  see from the screen shot, the Android app looks a lot like Bluefire's iOS apps, and it has all the same features. It appears to be available for the German market only, and right now it's only found in the Samsung App Store. The app supports Epub, PDF, and it can also read any DRM-free PDF or Epub as well as Epubs sold in most ebookstores (except iBooks). You cna even use this app to read ebooks from B&N.

The Libri.de ebookstore stocks 250 thousand titles in English, German, and English.

While this is good news for Libri customers, it's also good news for the rest of us. Bluefire should have their unbranded version of the Android app out in the not too distant future, which means we'll soon have a third Android app that supports all ebookstores (except Kindle, iBooks) and library ebooks.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
