Is there a better interface for managing kindle devices? Or is there a
better app for reading kindle media?

For managing Kindle devices you use Manage Your Kindle, not the app.
And the best way to read kindle media is a Kindle - preferable eInk.
Were you asking about something specific?

1) Are you referring to the Manage Your Kindle page?
2) If the books are DRMed, you can only read them on a Kindle device or app.

Thank you for your responses.

I'm trying to set up a better workflow for my Kindle than I have currently.

I'd like to be able to send Amazon Kindle purchases, random PDF's that I
find, and web articles that I want to "read later" with the Readability
plug in.

The problem I have currently is that you have to manage all the documents
that you send to Kindle through the interface. So a) many times
documents never make it to that interface b) after "sending a document to
kindle" I have to manually go to Amazon and send it to each of my 3 devices
with the Kindle app and c) once I'm done reading, I cant remove the
document from the device without going back to

I'm looking for an alternative app or interface to manage my Kindle media, if possible, for my ipad, iphone and laptop. :-/

You can remove documents and books from any kindle without going to
You only need to go to the Manage Your Kindle page if you want to delete the app from the archives (cloud).

Too bad there is not another app that can read Kindle files. Love proprietary DRM stuff.
Cannot get Kindle app to work at all on phone after last update. On this one it is baked into the rom and can't be uninstalled reinstalled and phone has no root available yet. It was my most freq way to read these and I have a big collection.
