I really wanted to like your product, but I don't understand why it it's any better than using the Kindle or iBooks platforms, which will sync reading progress.
Hi Bill,

Thank you for trying BookFusion and providing feedback.

The ability to organize an eBook collection and easily send it to a Kindle device is used by several users. Thousands of eBooks are sent via this functionality monthly. There are even requests to support multiple Kindle devices/emails.

The functionality might be useless to you personally but is very useful to other users.

>Because reading progress is not synced between bookfusion and the Kindle, I really don't understand the purpose or usefulness of pretending that it is a supported device.


If you want to sync reading progress between Kindle devices then you need to use only the Kindle apps and devices. The Kindle is a closed ecosystem and as a result there exists no third party app that will sync reading progress to your Kindle device. The most that can be done is to send the files.

>Because the book is sent through Amazon to the Kindle as a personal document, you lose formatting and typographic features that would be available if you just side loaded the book directly

If the files are in MOBI/AZW then no intermediate conversion needs to occur before it is sent to your Kindle device. As a result the formatting and typographic features should be no different than if you side loaded the book directly. We will be happy to investigate if you reach out to us at support@bookfusion.com


Reading progress is sync seamlessly between iOS, Android and Desktops(via Web) using the BookFusion app. We know there are several improvements to be made and will have significant updates combining out in the upcoming months that also integrates feedback from our early adopters.






Best,
Dwayne
