I've modded the Kindle app to make it more eInk friendly (especially for Nook Simple Touch (NST)). The changes include:
  • White mode background is really white, not light gray. White mode text is really black, not something close to black.
  • Black mode background/text same as above.
  • Sepia mode unchanged.
  • Reading progress bar changed from shaded spheres (barely visible on eInk) to empty and filled squares.
  • Library background now white with black text.
  • Other text(s) changed to black.

I've signed this app and the signature is different from the original app, so you will need to uninstall your existing Kindle app and install this one.

I'm pretty sure the point of signatures is to prove who made the update. That is, only the developers of the app have the original signing key. So I don't think there's a way of getting your signature to match theirs.

Thanks sayno -- I've been thinking about this for a few days and your explanation makes perfect sense to me. Of course this measure will prevent someone from hijacking an app from a known source with another one. Thanks for the reply.

Library background now white with black text is quite an improvement, thanks.

Regarding whiter background and darker text, I just notice it a bit. I've made the same tweaks on CoolReader and MoonREader and i don't know why but MoonReader displayed the best results.

I use lcd density (crank it up to 260) to make dicitonary window more readable.

Hi, Any chance of this app with a different font? Or a way to change fonts?

I believe kindle uses Droid serif where as I prefer the Nook standard san-serif. I think the fonts are in rom so can't be changed? I couldn't seem to rename Droid font (or another) so I can just replace it with a san-serif renamed to Droid.

My antivirus (F-Secure), marked the APK as containing Malware and removed it during download. Anyone else experiencing this? Or can clarify why it is getting marked as Malware?

They are probably compared this app's signature against the play store's master list of signatures, didn't find this one's, and considered malware.
