iPhone Kindle App and book covers

Hi, I have downloaded a free book in .mobi format on Calibre. I have setup the metadata, the cover, and so I have activated the web server.

I went on the webserver on my iPhone, I downloaded the book to the Kindle App (why the Kindle App you would say, because this is the one I prefer on my iPhone now, as this is the one I find the most convenient to watch for word definitions. Perhaps stanza could be better, but for now Stanza does not work anymore on iOS 5).

And so ok I have my book on my Kindle App, except that my book just has a generic cover, not the cover I have added.

Any way to have my cover in iPhone Kindle app?

Thanks

Doing a mobi to mobi conversion prior to sending the book should embed the cover in the file.
