For those of you who have downloaded the blog’s free app to read the blog posts on your Kindle Fire or Android enabled smartphone (i.e., Motorola RAZR or Samsung Galaxy) or tablet computer, I appreciate it: it’s an easy way to receive instant notifications of posts about free Kindle Books.
If you haven’t tried it yet – and the app is free – here’s a sweetener for you to give it a try: there has been a minor update that allows the color graphics I’ve been putting in the posts lately. Besides being able to judge the book by the cover, if you tap the book’s cover image it will take you directly to the right spot on the Amazon website to grab your free copy of the book. In other words, you won’t have to try and hit the right tiny spot on the normal “click here” line-items, although that will still be there in each post.
Existing users who want to upgrade can either wait for the notification from Amazon and Google to update (which could take a while) or reinstall it using the instructions below.
You can download and install the blog’s app (for free) from either the Amazon App store or the Google Play Store: it takes about 5 seconds to install and, unlike other apps, it doesn’t ask for any personally identifying items like your phone number, location, etc. The only permission it needs is an Internet or Wi-Fi connection.
