The $9.95 per month ebook subscription service Oyster, which was previously only available on iOS(s AAPL), expanded to Android(s GOOG), Kindle(s AMZN) Fire and Nook(s BKS) HD tablets Tuesday — thus removing one of the differentiating factors between it and rival service Scribd. New features include “read time” for books (there is a similar feature on Kindle e-readers) and the ability to turn a book’s pages using the volume buttons on an Android device. Oyster, which is based in NYC and launched in fall 2013, now has over 500,000 titles, with two of the big-five publishers — Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins — participating.
