    When I first started using Kindle on my HTC Inspire, under each book title there were a bunch of little dots which distinguished how far along in the book I had read. Now there are only 3 dots under each book title, no matter how many pages in the book. I have uninstalled/re-installed the Kindle for Android App with no change. Someone told me to remove the battery from my phone for a bit . . I did that and nothing.

    I have searched Amazon.com's support and can find no solution to this problem so thought I would try here. Would be nice to have this feature back!

    Thanks in advance if you have any suggestions :)

    By the way . . I do have the most current version for this app 3.0.1.70

    With the Kindle app on my HTC Desire HD there are three dots with every book. This was always like that.
    Start the book with one dot, more than 50% are two dots, more than 75% are three dots.

    With the Kindle app on my HTC Sensation there are a lot of dots for every book. Big books have more dots than small books.

    Both phones have gingerbread (2.33).
    The difference is the HTC Sense version (2.1 vs 3.0).

    So I wondered about this dots too :)

    Not sure about the app but on the Kindle itself that sort of malfunction means you are out of synch with the Kindle servers and you have to go into menu and "restart" to resynch (on and off doesn't do it); do you have a similar option maybe?

    I found the reason for the three dots :)
    On my HTC Desire HD I have a very big eBook (.mobi format, imported, 15MB). This book has a lot of dots (I hadn't seen this book with my first post above).

    I deleted this book and all the other books with three dots in the shelf have now a lot of dots again.

    So the number of dots depends of the biggest book at the shelf.
    The number of dots of the other books are relatively to the biggest book at the shelf.
    The three dots are the minimal number.
