Cool, thanks! I don't see 0.0.3.0 on the downloads section yet, so I'm guessing that you can choose either a collection name or periodicals or recently added as a collection? What I'd love to see is something like "Unread periodicals, if none then fall back to a collection".

From my understanding with Android, if you have any partition mounted on a host (ie, the "sdcard" partition mounted on your Windows machine as E: or whatever) then it's unavailable to Android at that time. This is the same on Android phones and my Sony T1.

For example, if I fire up terminal and type "df" I can see /mnt/sdcard. If I connect USB in data transfer mode, then /mnt/sdcard disappears. I suspect that SonyPrsT1Home is looking somewhere under /mnt/sdcard for the Sony databases and if it can't find it it presents an empty homescreen?

Starting the Sony "Home" app though does show books, but if you try to open them then the "Home" app force closes. I guess from this that it must cache the database somewhere..

Cheers,
Simon.
