Kindle on iPhone (iOS 13.4.1) (Kindle version 6.30.1.0)

An issue with this version of the Kindle app (6.30.1.0 - 1.0.0.221298.0) for iOS (running on an iPhone 6s Plus), is that after when closed or even after when departed for an other app the actual location site is not remembered but automatically reset to loc 1 when again opened or visited again. This new behaviour of 6.30.1.0 at least with side-loaded books.

Who can one contact for giving this feedback so that it can be corrected?

Are there others that experience the same issue?

On my iDevices, books from Amazon are keeping their last page read position, but side-loaded books (docs) don't. This is a new issue with this 6.30.1 update.

Agreed.

Nothing the user can do can resolve the issue.

Only workarounds so far:

Use a book mark to save your last read position before closing, or

Or use "Sync to Furthest Page" (Not the automatic option that first appears, but the option in the book menu alongside table of contents.
