Slow page turning on Kindle App

Since I got my Note Pro I always used the Neo Reader because the page turning on the Kindle app was quite a bit slower.

I just updated to the new firmware and was hoping that the Kindle app would be improved.

No, page turning is still slow compared to Neo Reader.

I miss the time left in book and time left in chapter from the Kindle.
I wish Neo Reader had those features.

What about your experiences with Kindle app?

Are you using it?

Satisfied with the page turning speed?

Is there any other alternative reader that will display time left?

Have you optimized the Kindle app for Onyx devices? If not - when in the Kindle app, click the Navigation Ball. Then choose settings (the middle icon), refresh, and set Animation Filter to 300. You should see a definite improvement.

On my Nova, the Kindle app works well, as does the Nook app. There is only a very brief hesitation between a tap or swipe and the page turning. Contrast is quite good. I have not seen the Kindle app work as well on any E-Ink device I have used before.
