Google eBooks apps announced for Android and iOS

Google has just announced the launch of its Google eBookstore, which lucky US users can use to browse and buy over three million titles to peruse on eBook-friendly devices.

Unlike other proprietary eBook stores, Google’s is “designed to be open”; this means you’ll be able to read your eBooks on compatible devices, which include laptops, netbooks, tablets, smartphones and e-readers.

You’ll be able to access the book shop on some mobiles too – Google is launching free apps for Android and Apple devices, so you’ll be able to download books and get stuck in while you’re out and about.

It’s all US-only at the moment, but here’s hoping the Google Bookstore and associated apps make it across the pond very soon.
