6 Android Ebook Reader Apps With Great Annotation Features

Reading is not a dialogue between you and the author, but rather an expression from the text to your brain. When you annotate, your mind develops a contextual relationship with the document. This includes facts, criticisms, links to related documents or web links, better navigational cues, and more.

You can annotate your ebooks with a highlighter tool, comment tool, underlines, callout arrows, and much more. We’ll show you six EPUB readers for Android that let you annotate ebooks and export notes in different formats.

1. Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle is a multi-platform ebook reader featuring marketplace, reader, and library management features. The Kindle app gives you many options to set up the reading environment according to your needs. You can adjust the screen brightness, set your preferred screen orientation, switch to night mode, customize the font, and much more.

Annotate and View Notes

Touch and hold a word, then drag the highlighter to the end of the sentence or paragraph. The highlighting tools will pop up as you lift your finger from the screen. From the color picker box, choose the color you want to use. To add a note, select the highlighted text and tap Note. When the note window appears, type in your notes and tap Save.

The Kindle app doesn’t let you export notes directly to your device. Instead, you can view the saved highlights organized under the titles located in your Amazon Kindle highlights. The most recently updated books occupy a column on the left, with annotations on the right panel.
