I have just received my shiny new Nook reader. As much as I love reading on my TP I can't use it outside, as the screen is unreadable in the sun. Hence me buying a Nook Simple Touch. However, I use my TP (using the kindle app) for reading when indoors.
I have a slight issue regarding sideloaded books, which obviously aren't synced across my devices (this isn't available via kindle either unfortunately)
I've noticed that navigation to parts of my current book is via page number on the Nook, but I can only navigate to a location number in the Kindle app. For example I am on page 57 of my current book, but when I want to go to page 57 within the kindle app I can't, as I can only enter a location (incidentally, it's location 930), not a page number.
I've noticed that the Android kindle reader has the option to enter a location or page number, but the WebOS version doesn't (I'm running WebOS version 12.50 (513366)). Am I missing something or is there a definite difference between the apps?
I could easily boot my TP into Android (CM9 installed to dual boot) and run either the Android kindle app, or the Nook app (which doesn't run under WebOS), but I want to stay with WebOS, as it's by far the best tablet OS I have used.
Do any of your clever people have a suggestion as to how I can use the WebOS kindle app to go to page numbers rather than a location number? Is there maybe a later version of the WebOS kindle app which I should be running?
This is a little niggly thing which I'm trying to work out, but not having much luck with at the moment. Ideally the OpenMobile ACLsoftware would be available to let me run the Nook app within WebOS, but that's another story (and another thread)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
