The social networking feature too has received some tweaks so that the reading progress now also shows the updates you have received on your facebook or twitter accounts. The Version 2.0 of the Amazon for Android app also allows users the ability to zoom images and graphics by double tapping on them or to use the volume keys to turn the page if they so wish.
Then there are some changes meted out to the UI such as the appearance of the chapter title in the reader status bar while users now also have the convenience of purchasing content in-app. The updated app also offer the significant advantage of allowing users the choice to store the app even on a microSD card which too has been made compliant.
