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 .
Glad to hear about the lack of the 'loading' annoyance when using an actual Kobo device.

I, too, dislike the Kindle percentage instead of pages method. I usually have no idea how long I've been reading and those percentages are a complete waste to me. I only use it as an absolute last resort, if the book I want is not available anywhere else but amazon.
