Google Play Books adds annotation improvements

Google has released an update to Google Play Books adding several improvements for bookmarking, highlighting and annotating. Google Play Books 1.3 adds the ability to bookmark pages by tapping the top right corner, highlight text with colour and add private notes to selected text; highlights and notes also sync with Google Play web reader and Google Play Books on other iOS devices. Users can now also translate selected text into 50+ languages, look up definitions of selected words and search for text in books or on Wikipedia or Google. A choice of either grid or list view is also now available on the iPhone and iPod touch and a +1 button allows users to share book titles via Google Plus. Google Play Books is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.
