    I have the same book on both devices. Reading on the iPad yesterday, opened the book on iPhone today and it took me to the page I left off!

    I didn't try it with an actual bookmark. But, how is this done? I didn't sync either device to iTunes in the interim.

    For some reason my bookmarks aren't updating between my iPad and iPhone.

    I posted about this yesterday. I'm a little confused about how it is doing it, also, since it can do it so fast. Anyway, I like the feature. So far, I've only noticed it on the Kindle app. I'll have to try it on the iBook app, too.

    It syncs with Apple's servers whenever you open or close the app. Same as MobileMe and Google cloud syncing.

    So it looks like it only syncs the place you left off, not actual bookmarks.

    Of course it has to be tied to your account if synced to the server - nice to hear that Kindle app also does it.
