It would be great if Amazon could tweak their "Cloud reader" to work better on mobile browsers. This would make it possible to read one's Kindle library on Firefox OS.
Is there a mobile device/browser where it is currently working? be iOS Safari, Opera, UCWeb, Chrome, etc?
Not that I've found.
The reader app adapts to some extent to a narrower window, it switches from two-page layout to one-page layout. However, this obviously has some limits - there are hard-coded withs and min-widths in the styling.
Hallvord, Karl, would you mind getting in touch with Amazon through one of established channels? The company probably won't comment on product plans here.
typo: "through one of your established channels"..
Good point - sorry to have nagged you, Daniel!
No problem! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
I've also filed bug 1036964 since it does not listen to scroll events (on Firefox OS 2.1). Has anyone tried it on Firefox for Android?
On Android it just pushes the Kindle app, you're not allowed to use the online reader. :-/ I guess one could spoof as a browser that bypasses that blocker to test it.
Not sure we can do anything here. On Firefox OS, there is a login/password form. Then for testing extensively the issues, there is a need for the credentials. If an Amazon kindle user wants to test extensively, please do it. That could help. As for Android, it is a known issue (since the first release in 2011) that they chose to not offer the Web version on the Android platform. So that seems to be a clear business decision from them, unfortunate or not. http://androidcommunity.com/amazon-ignores-android-with-new-kindle-cloud-reader-web-app-20110810/
