Social Book Platform Glose Now on Android

By Dianna Dilworth 

gloseGlose, a social tool for e-book readers, has launched a new app for Android devices. Prior to the release, the tool was available on iOS devices and via web apps.

The app allows readers to sample, purchase and read e-books and recommend them to friends. The service has more than 300,000 books in its library with titles from more than 600 publishers. The site also includes curated recommendations from its staff editors, as well as from authors.

Readers can highlight passages and make notes in e-books and then share these in their social reading stream.
