Customers who purchase e-books through independent booksellers now have a mobile option with the launch of IndieBound Reader for Android, which was developed by Bluefire Productions. The app, currently offered for devices using the Android operating system, will soon be available for iOS devices as well. It can be downloaded from the Android Market or IndieBound.org.
“With the release of IndieBound Reader, independent bookstores are taking another major step forward as players on the digital stage,” said Matt Supko, technology director for the American Booksellers Association. “A year after the launch of Google eBooks, indies have become a vital and fast-growing part of the e-book market, thanks to their creativity, marketing savvy, and knack for matching the customer with the best book for them-print or digital. The IndieBound Reader app gives independent bookstores a home on the most popular mobile devices, making it easier than ever for customers to shop local when they shop digital.”
