Root Explorer updated with Superuser compatibility, Kindle App with UI tweaks.
Root Explorer and the Kindle App for Google’s mobile operating system Android received updates in the Google Play Store. While the often used Root Explorer was updated for Koush’s Superuser app as well as owner change options, the new version of the Kindle App for Android features some UI tweaks.
The new version of Amazon’s Kindle App for the Android OS integrates small but good tweaks to make the management of books, newspapers and magazines a little bit simpler and the User Interface a bit better. The notable update for the Android Kindle reader app, pushed by Amazon into the Google Play Store, adds two new features beside several improvements of the performance.
The users of the Kindle reader app by Amazon for Google’s mobile operating system Android are now able to sort the items in their libraries also by recent purchases, authors (A-Z or Z-A) and title. Further, the new version of the Kindle App for Android features an information that displays the amount of time left to finish the chapter or entire book, which is based on the user’s / reader’s average pace.
Beside the UI tweaks and new options to sort the library in the Kindle App for Android, there are also some new sync and stability improvements, although Amazon does not mention specific improvements in the description of the new Kindle App version in the Play Store of Google. Of course, the update to the latest version of Amazon’s Kindle App for the Android OS is recommended.
As mentioned, the often used Root Explorer app for Android has received an update, too. The new version of the Root Explorer app for the Android OS delivers an updated manifest for Koush’s Superuser app as well as it adds new permissions and the options to change the owner.
The latest version of Root Explorer for Android improves the compatibility with Superuser by adding “ACCESS_SUPERUSER”, and thus, the users of the Koush’s Superuser app from the Play Store are no longer warned that Root Explorer has not declared this permission and the others have no longer to worry about a situation where Root Explorer is not granted with root privileges.
Root Explorer 3.1 for Android also features the new and important option to change the owner and permissions of multiple files at the same time and this makes the file management under Android a lot easier. This is definitely a time save and very handy for the users of the Root Explorer app for Android.
