Whispersync on Kindle Fire 1st Generation
Whispersync allows you to synchronize your content across devices so that you can pick up right where you left off.
Whispersync for Kindle Books
Whispersync automatically synchronizes bookmarks, annotations, and your furthest page read of your Kindle content among Kindle devices and Kindle reading applications registered to the same Amazon.com account. When you open the same Kindle book on another Kindle device or app, you will be given the choice to go to the furthest page read across all your devices if you are further ahead on another device. This ensures that you can easily pick up where you left off regardless of which device you are using.
To manually sync your Kindle content on your Kindle Fire, tap the Quick Start icon, then the Sync icon.
Whispersync for Personal Documents
Whispersync allows you to sync your notes, highlights, bookmarks, and furthest page read on your personal documents that have been converted to Kindle format using Kindle Personal Documents Service. Kindle Personal Documents Service also stores your personal documents in your Kindle Library for viewing and downloading to supported Kindle devices and Kindle reading applications. These features are currently supported on Kindle Fire, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch with Kindle app version 2.9 or greater.
Your personal documents will remain in your Kindle Library until you delete them. If you don't want your documents to be stored in your Kindle Library, you can change your personal documents, and Whispersync settings, through Manage Your Kindle at www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle.
