I just downloaded Kindle for my Motorola Droid, and was wondering anyone knows of a way to get at my PragPub books from there. Thanks!
If you copy your *.mobi file to the sdcard/kindle path on your phone, you can open it with Kindle for Android. The only problem is that if there are non-Amazon titles in that path, the app will force close when invoking Whispersync. To get around that, you can put your phone in Airplane Mode before opening the Kindle App, then take it out of airplane mode once you have selected your book. This means no whispersync features, notes, or highlights.
Amazon just pushed an update that corrects the force close issue, so just drag-and-drop your *.mobi into /sdcard/kindle and you are good to go.
I did the above and it works, but I’m not able to sync across devices. I use bookmarks and highlighting a lot and can’t get them to sync. Nor will it sync to my furthest read location. Anyone got any ideas?
