Kindle iPad App Suddenly Losing My Place

For two and a half years, the Kindle iPad app has been a faithful friend. Now, as of a couple of weeks ago, I open the app and I'm on the first page. Or a page near the end nowhere near where I was reading. Right book, wrong page. It takes time to find my place. The "sync to furthest page" option doesn't help because I'm re-reading a big part of the book. This problem is new and annoying. I apologize for not studying this forum to find an earlier with the same problem--I just needed to vent.

Are you closing the book before you exit the app? If not, try that.

Sync to the furthest page read only works if you are reading the same book on more than one device.

Is someone else reading the book on a different device?

No, I'm not closing the book. Why would I do that? It worked fine for almost 3 years. Secondly, sync to furthest page read should work fine when only ne device is involved. Something has changed.

Good question, but no. There are two iPads involved but each is reading a different book. Wife is having problems too.

Awhile back decided to bookmark the page whenever leaving the Kindle app. Apparently not a bad idea. Simply a touch in the upper right corner. Do the same when reading on Kindles. And yes, occasionally it's not the page last read upon opening. Probably an errant touch when opening or closing the app/Kindle. Also touch/eliminate the book mark when starting reading again.

Good tip. Still strange to be having this problem now after reading 100+ books with the iPad Kindle app.

Since changing over to IOS7, the "sync to furthest page" is not working. First, when I open Kindle app, it now goes to library, and not last page read. Then I open book currently reading, and it says it is furthest page read when I sync, but it is wrong. I tried the book mark, but I don't even see a place where you can go to book mark. Not loving this.

You have to tap the center to get the menu to use the bookmark. It's awful.

I noticed that it syncs to a few pages close to the right spot, but isn't correct.

I thought it was just me!

Thanks Sarida! I tried getting the book mark from the center menu, and all is does is turn blue or clear. It doesn't take me TO my book mark. Of course, since writing this post, my kindle now opens to the last page I was on. Weird. It is playing mind games with me! :)

Sorry! I misunderstood.

Tap the center of the screen. On the right side of the title at the top, there is an icon that looks like a typed page. Click that and your bookmarks will show up.

I tried that too but it does not work.

Bookmark - that is. Book Mark appears but I shutdown my iPad at bedtime and when I resume I have to search to find my place. Search to farthest page is not even available. This is an absolutely essential functionality! Please fix it!

I am facing the same problem as Sam and Sarida. When I open my Kindle, it goes to a page close to the one I was reading, but not the right one. I started to face this problem after upgrading my mini Ipad to ios 7. Please fix it!!!!

Which Kindle?

Actually, since using iOS 7, I don't have that problem. It syncs between my Kindle Touch and my mini iPad.

And btw, isn't that mini pretty sweet? :)

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2014 6:32:05 PM PDT
It is not just you it is a pain. I bookmark it and still have trouble.

Mine has "somehow" fixed itself. Have not had that problem in some time. Wish I knew how it changed. Sorry!
