Today Amazon updated its Kindle app for Android with a few visual tweaks that bring the overall experience closer to what you'd typically find on the company's Kindle Fire tablets. Chief among the additions is a "carousel" view on the app's main home page, which lets users swipe through their recently-read content. This navigation scheme has long been a feature on the Fire devices, but Amazon is only now incorporating it within the standalone Kindle application.

Other changes include a "redesigned library experience" which features a new left-side navigation pane offering immediate access to sections for your books, documents, and newsstand content. Amazon also now lets users choose between having Kindle display only locally-stored content or their entire cloud library. The latest update to Kindle for Android is available now from Google Play.
