    Do you use a web browser zoom mode when browsing/using RHP? This might be a cause, should such an option exist. Which browser do you use?

    (Now slightly terrififed that I now need a Kindle Fire for testing.)

    Kindle Fire has an app for RHP?

    I haven't seen it. Where would I go to find such a thing?

    I just use their browser to peruse RHP, but it's not ideal. For one thing, using the Kindle keyboard is laborious compared to using my full-size keyboard on the computer.

    Naturally, I bought my Fire right before the HD came out. Story of my life.

    Edit: I haven't tried moving in any games while on the Kindle though, so I can't testify as to its accuracy there.

    Well, it's not actually designed as such, for kindle fire, but it works 'well enough'.

    N.B. Russ said recently that he'd 'get to work on the Amazon marketplace', but he has his hands full right now with the 'new site UI'...
