If you are someone who uses your smartphone to read e-books during that very long commute from home to work, then Amazon has a very sweet surprise for you. The new app, Kindle Lite, is smartly-sized, at 2MB, and will not take up space in your phone which is meant to store group selfies and the favourite binge-watch series of the week (be it Black Mirror or Altered Carbon). Plus, it offers a ton of free ebooks and has titles in regional languages too, be it Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Gujarati, and Malayalam. This is the perfect time to put on your reading glasses and start reading the Murakami, or even Paulo Coelho for that matter. P.S.: Sorry iPhone users, the app is only available for Android users, not that phone space is something you worry about when you drop around ₹1lac on a smartphone.
