These are minor things, but I'm a details person.
I'm OK with the numbering scheme. On the Touch, there isn't a reload pause when you change chapters like there is on the Android App. I assume that is the same on the iOS.

I don't know if the Amazon App for Android is anything like the experience reading on a Kindle, but I find their numbering much more difficult to figure out. At least with the Kobo devices, you can look at the stats in reading life and see your page turns for your current book and how that translates into the %. So, for example, in the book I am currently reading I can see that I have made 608 page turns and I am 95% of the way through the book. Knowing that I have read for 6 hours tells me I probably won't be reading it for very much longer .
