Historically that has stayed in step with the Google store version ,but with some lag - maybe because Amazon approval process is slow and tedious?
LOE = Level of Effort

And we are working on Amazon app store update, sorry for the slow progress.

Thanks.
So the plan is that Amazon app store versions will match Google play store version. But maybe lag a little

Is it true that Amazon approval process is slower than Google's?

Also, something I mentioned in another thread, can you look at how cc will interact with the built in kindle app on Amazon tablets, for kindle formats. It was not very good before, in that it could only open a book in kindle app at the start, there was no resume at last page option via cc. That may not be fixable ?

I use Likebook Mars with CC and Moon Reader (not with default reader, I needed Moon Reader's position sync).
CC on Mars works same as on my other devices (except that I would really like eInk-specific color theme).

The problem does not occur with Boox Android 6/9 devices, but it occurs with all Likebook Android 6 devices.
In CC you get when you select the reading application:
- Boyue OS
- xxxx
- yyyy
The log says:
Reader app found: [xxxx, yyyy, com.boyue.app.byreader]

Pocketbook is no Android device.
Andoid based Devices are from Tolino (Android 4.4.2), and there CC works.
With Likebook Air there is no problem - Android 4.4.2.
I don't know of any devices other than Onyx-Boox and Boyue-Likebook that have Android> 6 and are eInk reader tablets (with built-in reading application).

You mean pocketbook e-ink readers? They do have built-in reader app but good luck installing Calibre Companion on them. They are NOT Android-based devices .

Sorry it took me so long to reply, work is hectic.
Thanks for the info, looks like I will use a work around or go back to using moon reader.
Thanks again

I will follow up when we have more information in regards to effort required to change the behavior of sending a book file to the reader apps.

Thanks,

Excellent, thank you

I really like moon reader, used it on my tablet for a long time. I haven't found a color theme that works for me on the e-Ink screen. The built in E-reader is just easier on my eyes.
