I am not sure what the difficulty you are having is. The normal page
navigation gesture within iOS is working fine for me.

I have not tried it but there is a bookmark button on the Kindle app. Is
there a  problem with this?

I have now read a book, or a few chapters using Kindle app but I am
disappointed in that I do not appear to find things like Bookmarks, page
numbering and how to navagate through pages.  Can anyone help please?
