This has been a basic feature on Kindle devices, and I believe it has been in previous versions of the app for iPad/iOS. If I want to jump directly to page 221 in a book, how can I do it? It appears that I have to use an imprecise & cumbersome method of using the scrolling features.

Tap on the icon that looks like an open book...then tap on "Page.."

Thanks, Lisa. Except there is no "open book" icon that I can see in the latest version of the iPad app (ver. 4.0, from 09/18/13)

I have not updated my app and I still have the 3.5 version. The icon is on the upper left, next to the "House" icon. It's odd that the Go To icon is no longer a feature when they update software.

The bars at the top left have everything in there.

*ETA* There isn't one on the iPhone. Locations only. The page number is above locations on the iPad.

I have the latest OS on my Ipad Mini and the latest Kindle version. I don't normally use the Kindle app on the Ipad but I just took a look. As someone said, the book icon when you're in a book has a Page... entry and a Location... entry and when I tap either of them a dialog pops up that looks like it wants me to enter a page or a location number. No keyboard pops up so I couldn't find a way to do it.

Either I missed something or there's a bug here. If it's a bug hopefully it'll be fixed soon. In the meantime you can go to any page number pretty easily with the slide bar at the bottom of the page. As you slide it it tells you what page number you've just positioned it to. It will take a couple of tries to get just the page you want but it shouldn't be too difficult.

Thanks, Debi. But as with Lisa, you must be looking at a different version from me. At the top left are three icons. The leftmost icon display a menu with "Library" (Home) at the top, followed by the contents of the book (Cover, Title Page, Preface, Contents, etc.). The second icon causes a grid of about 12 thumbnail images of pages of the book. The third icon (magnifying glass) opens a search window with only a search field and nothing else. The top right corner of the screen shows icons for Notes, Brightness and Bookmarks. That's it.

Thanks, Barry. Although you're right that the bottom scrollbar is not difficult, it is still not as easy, quick or precise as using a "Go To" to jump directly to a page.

When in the book, tap the center of the screen, then tap the "3 horizontal lines" icon (upper left corner of the screen), then select "Page", then type in the page number.

King Al - Thanks! I discovered the issue. It is actually specific to the book I'm reading. I don't think the book is in the true Kindle format, it is more like a PDF. So I tried with another book in the standard Kindle format and your method worked.

Problem and mystery solved.
