Did a test and Fire is totally oblivious to the archived Personal Documents
of other Kindles (K3 and K4). Here are the shortcomings from the test.
- Fire cannot archive Personal Documents
- Fire cannot sync info (not even farthest page read) with Personal Documents archived by K3s or K4s
- Delete a Personal Document from the Fire and it is totally gone. You will have to email it to the Fire again if you want it back, but deletion also deletes highlights, notes, etc.
This is really bad IMO. First, Amazon is loosely using Personal Documents
in a confusing manner which can result in us thinking that they are referring to the Personal Documents
that can be archived and synced via the Kindle Personal Documents Service
. there are two definitions for Personal Documents
as used by Amazon:
- A non-Amazon Store document that was sideloaded or emailed to your Kindle.
- Document cannot be archived
- Document cannot be synced with other Kindles
- A non-Amazon Store document that you emailed to your qualifying K3 or K4 to take advantage of the Kindle Personal Documents Service for purposes of archiving and syncing with other qualifying Kindles.
- Document can be archived
- Document can be easily downloaded from Archive to qualifying Kindles
- Document can be fully synced with other qualifying Kindles
