Flipkart eBooks refreshes their Windows Phone app to compete with Amazon Kindle in India

Flipkart eBooks is an eBooks service from Flipkart, India’s leading online retailer. Not indulging with their own devices like Amazon Kindle, Flipkart eBooks is almost a similar ecosystem with an eBooks store and mobile apps for all platforms.

The Flipkart eBooks app for Windows Phone just got a major overhaul that addresses issues that a lot of users faced apart from a design refresh and new features.

The version fixes the Reader and download issues that a lot of users complained about. The new design is very impressive and functional. The Store experience too is revamped, and the entire user experience of the app has gone several notches up. The update also introduces collections in library and the ability to use Google account for login.

The app allows you to purchase your favorite eBooks from the extensive catalogue at the Flipkart eBooks store from within the app, and read them on the go through the app, even when you're offline. Like the samples that Amazon Kindle store offers, you can read 10% of the book for free before buying it.

Download the Flipkart eBooks app for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store.

Remember that only users in India can download full eBooks from this app. If you are not tied into the Amazon ecosystem, give it a whirl and let us know how you like it. There are thousands of free books on the store, so it’s not a bad deal.
