TOPIC: Inconsistent page skipping on Kindle Fire

Inconsistent page skipping on Kindle Fire 5 years 9 months ago #19619

I sideloaded the free version of ComicRack onto my Kindle Fire and was pleased that it installed correctly and appeared to operate fine. However, I've noticed that going to the next page of a comic is wildly inconsistent... sometimes it jumps three or four pages ahead, sometimes ten pages, sometimes going back a few pages, or even to a random page of another issue entirely. The same thing happens with the previous page action. I've tried disabling all actions (tap/long press/slide) except for a single "next page" tap but it doesn't seem to make a difference. The comics load fine on my Windows reader, so it's not an issue with the files.

I'm using ComicRack 1.3.7.

Don't install the free as in "rapidshare free" version.

This hacked 1.37 full edition does not work.

You can get a working free version from getjar.com

Apologies, I didn't realize it was a hacked version. I just googled until I found an APK. I initially tried GetJar but it doesn't permit me to download ComicRack... it detects the Kindle's user agent string and blocks the device from downloading. Is there anywhere else to get an officially sanctioned APK for sideloading?

Can you download it from the pc and copy it over?

No, trying to download the file from a PC browser results in a message:
To download to your phone:
1) go to m.getjar.com on your phone
2) Select Quick Download at the bottom of the page
3) Enter 243950

Following those steps just results in an error about the Kindle Fire being not supported. I tried specifying a bunch of different phone models, but all of them get the same message instead of a normal download link. To add even more frustration, visiting m.getjar.com from my PC browser just redirects to the full site, which doesn't have the Quick Download option.

I'm having the same issue and would like to resolve it too. I didn't intend to download the hacked full version, but I can't seem to get my hands on the apk for the free version.

I even tried to change the user agent on my browser and access the mobile version of getjar.com, but it still didn't work. When I do that, it tries to get me to download the GetJar app and obvioiusly that won't work. Any other ideas?

I tried m.getjar.com from my kindle browser, but it gives the error message mentioned previously. Then I tried www.getjar.com from my pc and that didn't work either. Then I tried m.getjar.com from my pc but that automatically redirects back to www.getjar.com.

That's when I tried to switch my user agent to get the mobile version of the site on my pc and I actually do get m.getjar.com without getting redirected, but then it says that I'm required to download the GetJar app before I can download any other apps.

I even just tried to use the android emulator, but I can't seem to get the wifi to work.

Any thoughts?

I put the latest free version on megaupload. I hope this helps. I do not want to make it an official download, as I do not want to maintain a secondary download location additionally to the market.
