Following the recent launch of its iPad application, Numilog has released the Numilog e-Book Reader for Android: a reader application connected to a fully-integrated e-store for purchasing books from a catalogue listing 21 sales outlets.

The Android open-source operating system is compatible with over 60 devices (smart phones and tablets) and has sharply increased its global market share.

The Numilog e-Book Reader is part of Numilog’s strategy to compete in a complete range of operating environments, benefiting both its partner bookstores and their customers. This has enabled Numilog to increase the interoperability of its offering by positioning itself on an increasing number of reader applications.

Easy-to-use, practical and intuitive, the Numilog e-Book Reader is currently the application with the largest catalogue of e-books in French for Android media players.

The Numilog e-Book Reader’s five essential features include:

  • A one-click e-store integrated into the application.
  • Automatic synchronization of the customer’s personal library with his/her account at the selected bookstore.
  • Books are classified according to new and best-selling titles, theme, author and publisher.
  • Full-text search ability.
  • Notes, highlighting and bookmark functions.
