  1. I don’t have a kindle, but this is interesting as well as the one concerning the page turner. I do read books on my phone and wish these kinds of features were available on the kindle app for phones. That would be sweet. You don’t happen to know anything about that do you?

    1. Hi Becka, I have been looking for some information for the phone app but so far I haven’t had any luck. Will keep a look out for you though and let you know if I find anything.

  2. This is great information!!! Thank you for the installation directions and providing the links. That makes it so much easier and saves me a lot of time!
