Inkling Releases a Digital Textbook App for Android

Inkling inklinghas been selling digital textbooks for so long that it is often easy to forget that this ebook company only offer apps for iPad and iPhone, so I was surprised today to read about Inkling's new Android app.

Nearly 4 years after releasing their iPad app, Inkling is now available on Android. The new app is still in beta, and it should include many of the same features as the iPad app.

You can find the app in Google Play.

I have to say that I am doubly surprised to see the launch of the app. Given that Inkling has pivoted away from selling textbooks to students, there would seem to be little need for an Android app. Inkling now says that they get most of their revenue from licensing their platform to publishers, so it is possible that they developed the Android app with that in mind.

In any case, if you are looking for a way to spend money on textbooks which cannot be resold, you should check out the app.

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."
