    Amazon's X-Ray for the Kindle App is now available for Android. X-Ray basically offers encyclopedic knowledge of whichever book you are reading. Whenever you click the X-ray button somewhere on the app's top bar, it can display particular terms and their meaning, or a list of characters and the parts of the book they appear in, or significant phrases appearing throughout the text and more.

    X-Ray will work for novels or text-books, which means it can help you in your schoolwork too. This new version even includes some additional useful features like push notifications and the ability to make flashcard sets. Here's a quote with a description from the Google Play Store for all the details,

    It's free on the Google Play Store: Amazon Kindle - Android Apps on Google Play

    I use the Kindle app for Samsung. I haven't checked it out yet but I'm hoping the X-ray is in that app as well.

    Man...I so wish I had this stuff back in my college days to make my life easier without having to dig through hours and hours of Googling. I just checked it out with one my fiction books by Stanislaw Lem. It is actually pretty decent. Notable Quotes was one of my favorite sections. Here's what it looks like
