The official Google Play eBooks app for Android seems to get the most new features and enhancements. The iOS version seems to be the least supported, but got a major update today.
The new Google Play Books 1.5 update brings Japanese vertical layout support, which makes manga and traditional ebooks more accessible. Speaking of books, the app now has support for Fixed Layout EPUB books. Fixed Layout means it now supports kids books, comics, and other image heavy content. This change was to set the stage for the upcoming newspaper service. Finally, the iOS app now has official Google Maps support, and you can click on interactive maps.
