    this may be an absolutely stupid question. when synching my iPad with my Kindle is the synch only one way with regard to page sync? if i read to a further location on my Kindle, the iPad will not sync to that page, but if i read further on my iPad and than sync on my kindle the kindle will sync to the latest page that i read to on the iPad. is this normal?

    Kindle sync

    I have the kindle app installed on the Macbook, Ipod touch and the Ipad.

    All three devices sync to the last read page np.

    I think you need to make sure that whichever device you used last was connected to the WIFI/Internet so it can sync the latest page read. This is not automatic I noticed. You might have to physically press the button to get this going. On the Ipad and the Ipod touch its in the lower right hand corner of the screen once you tap the page. On the mac its in the menu itself.

    Good luck.

    You have to leave the radio turned on on your Kindle for it to work in both directions. I use the Kindle app on both iPhone 4 and iPad 3G, plus a Kindle 3, and it works seamlessly no matter what device I use.

    Having the same problem with sync

    I own an iPhone and an iPad. You asked if the page location sync was only one way, and I can tell you, by experience, it is not. When I first started using the Kindle app, both devices would sync to the other's page location. however, now my iPad will not recognize a new location reached on the iPhone. And no amount of button pushing, as suggested, helps with this problem. My iPhone, though, will advance to the new page reached by the iPad. Anyone know what to do with this problem? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!:)

    Fixed the problem

    I fixed the problem by simply rebooting my iPhone and iPad. I don't know why it took me so long to try this, as about 80% of my computer problems are solved in this manner. Anyway, maybe this will help someone. If all else fails, REBOOT!;)

    I have the exact same problem. It used to work, now nothing helps. The iPhone will sync with the iPad, but the iPad just refuses to play. Any help much appreciated.

    Huh! I never thought about syncing kindle to a phone! This is too cool. I just synced my iPad to my Droid2. Thank you for this thread.

    Android and Mac sync. This is a beautiful thing.:)

    I just purchased my ipad and have been using the kindle software. My kindle and Ipad are both connected through my wifi. I read the ipad my my bed but take the kindle on my commute. Do I need to turn on the kindle before leaving the house to synch with the ipad or will the wispernet connect with it while it is in the off position???
