As I've got a DVD of 5,000 free books in Kindle format, I thought I'd download the official app although I had to find it elsewhere as my Android market did not list it - maybe a clue for what is to come?

It seems to work just fine, even with an official 'free book' from Amazon, but it's only when you start to read that you realise all is not well. The Arnova statusbar (both on 7 g2 and 10 g2) obscures the first line of print of the next page, hence the "is it me or is this book hard to understand?" confusion. I've tried all options including type sizes and margin sizes and it make no difference.

 

Looks like I'll have to stick to Aldiko and convert the books to e-pubs. Sigh

 

PS, I just noticed another thread on the same subject but the answer seems to be that unless you want to mess with a rooted version, the status bar is here to stay.
