Kindle for Android Updated With New Sorting Options

kindle itunesAmazon rolled out an update for the Kindle app this morning. This is a relatively minor update in the grand scheme of things, but I'm sure readers will be pleased. In addition to the usual stability improvements, Amazon is also reporting that they added new sorting options for your ebook library. Readers can now sort by title, author, or most recently read. The app will know also show you an estimate for the amount of time it will take to finish the chapter and book.

These new sorting options bring the Android app up to date with the reading app on the Kindle Fire and the Kindle iPad app. Both of those apps already offered  the more sophisticated options.

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."

  1. Still waiting for folders to group books. I guess some early decisions in the internals must be preventing Amazon from implementing this obvious improvement.

  2. Agreed-Want custom folders too! It seems straightforward, don’t understand why they don’t just add it as an option?

    I want to scroll from the bottom, not the side. I don’t want to swipe, I want to tap. Fix the simple stuff, so I can use it better, stop polishing (seriously, estimating my read speed? WTF?).
