Google Play Books Receives Update for Froyo and Gingerbread Devices, New 3D UI and Homescreen Shortcuts

Along with the update to Gmail, Google Play Books is also receiving a little update for users on Gingerbread and Froyo devices. There is the new 3D interface, a homescreen shortcut available for a single title you are enjoying, in-book search works offline, and the screen stays on during TTS. All in all, it’s a pretty solid update for the ‘older’ devices.

Cheers Dave!

  • so where is the update to upload our own ebooks?

    • That’s what I’m waiting for too. ¬†Until then I’ll stick with Nook for Android, lets me side load all my epubs and has a decent interface.
