Google Books Update Adds Support for 7″ Android Tablets

Google launched the UK eBookstore today, but that wasn't all they did. There's also a new update to the Google Books Android app. The update brings a couple minor improvements, several bug fixes, and one or 2 major new features.

The one new feature that is probably the most important is the improved support for 7" tablets. I can't say that I see any difference, but then again I don't have a 7" tablet to check. Google also added better support for smaller screen (phones), including in-book search and a landscape mode for with reflowable text. You can also now +1 a book while reading, a feature which won't matter once Google kills off gPlus (as they inevitably will).

You can find the updated app in the Android Market.

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."
