Oyster Launches Android App

The Oyster ebook subscription service now offers its free app to Android device and NOOK HD users via the Google Play store. Kindle Fire users can access the app on Oyster’s website.

The Oyster team redesigned the app to cater to Android devices by adding new typography, modes (for daytime and nighttime reading), layouts, enhanced colors, and a new theme (featuring a high-contrast typeface for outdoor reading). Other design upgrades include more detailed ebook descriptions with related-title lists and the addition of “read time,” which shows the approximate time it will take to read a title. Users can also turn an ebook’s pages by pressing the volume buttons on their devices and view editors’ notes for hundreds of titles that give short reviews of the ebooks.

New features incorporated into the Android app are also now available for the iOS app (version 7 or later).
