Aldiko: Only does non-DRM'd ePubs. There are thousands of these books available but you're not going to be getting newly released copyrighted books. Great user interface but the no DRM limitation is a problem. Aldiko also has a paid app that has more features but it still doesn't let you load new DRM'd books from the major retailers.

I will answer my own question in the hope in helps others: I just had to reboot my device, and now when I start Kindle the MOBI files which I had copied to the Kindle folder are present in the main screen.

It's an artificial geographic restriction that Amazon have put in. Essentially the .com Amazon Kindle store is accessible to any Amazon customers worldwide (except for customers who's account has an address in a country that has its own Kindle store). Country specific Kindle stores, like Amazon.co.uk's Kindle store are only accessible to Amazon accounts that ...

I know I'm coming in late here, but there are a couple more suggestions to convert/push documents to the KF: Mail it to your [your-kindle]@kindle.com address with 'convert' in the subject line. Use the Send to Kindle app (Mac version; Windows version link on page) which automates the process with drag-and-drop. The Send to Kindle bookmarklet claims to push ...

To get back your @kindle email address (assuming someone else hasn't acquired it in the meanwhile), browse to Amazon.com and navigate to Your Account > Manage Your Kindle > Manage Your Devices > Personal Documents Settings (this last link is rather less than obvious, below the panel showing a photo of a KF). There is a link there to edit/change the KF's ...

I have a rooted Lenovo A1 that is experiencing the same problem. I cannot say for certain what is causing the problem, but I don't believe that it's being rooted is the issue. I have been able to resolve the problem temporarily by decreasing the screen resolution using an app called "LCD Resolution" which I had installed for other reasons. When the Kindle ...

I'm not too familiar with how intents work exactly but this looks like the browser is mistakenly set as the default app for something it shouldn't handle.
