Whispersync is not always working

Doesn't always keep up to date with the furthest position.

I am syncing between Kindle iPhone, PC, Mac and K3. Sometimes when i sync it does not take me to the furthest location, but a couple of syncs before. Like my profile hasn't really been updated.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I have sort of the opposite problem, I turned off sync between devices on Amazon.com but every time I download a book that a family member is reading it carries over their progress onto my Kindle.

Unless you force a manual sync as soon as you finish on one device, and then force one again immediately when you pick up the new device, then yes... if you do a lot of switching between devices (rather quickly) you may just catch an ebook that is temporarily out of sync with your furthest read page. I don't think it was ever intended to be an immediate, real-time sort of thing.

I see. I don't tend to switch that quickly, I was just testing it.

I now sync manually, exit the book to the main book menu and sync again for all devices. Seems to be working better.

I also re-enabled saving of annotations on the iPhone app, not sure if thats related to it (probably not).
