Sync issues with iPad?

I'm reading on my KT and my iPad. If I bookmark a spot on my iPad, the KT knows this and asks if I want to update. The iOS app does not, and dumbly remembers only where I left off on the iPad. My iPad is communicate with the Internet so that isnt the issue.

I should add that this is a kobo book that I am reading.

Thoughts?

Thanks

I tested this with my Android Tablet, Android Smartphone, Kobo Desktop and Kobo Touch. In two out of three books the bookmarking worked but the upper left of the pages was different on all the devices.

It looks like the Kobo Deveopers have some work to do.

I've had sync issues with my iPad and iPhone, and they haven't gone away with the latest firmware update. I have pretty much the exact same problem the OP described--the Touch recognizes when I've been reading on another device, but it usually doesn't work the other way around.

One thing I've encountered that seems to help--but still is far from 100% reliable--is to exit a book on the iOS app before I exit the app itself. I.e. go back to my bookshelf. This seems to make it more likely that when I read on my touch, and then go back to the app, when I re-open the book it will be on the right page. But still, this is something that really needs to be fixed.
