Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
In order to help you I need to ask, please: How exactly are you touching the screen, when you touch it to change or turn the page?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am swiping it in the middle of the page with my finger or a stylus.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

OK - that's more or less the right way to tap the page. Toward the edges it often signals more than one tap, thus skips pages.

How many devices do you have Kindle apps on, please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
One
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

And that one device is an iPad with the Kindle Reader app, correct?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Does any other app have a problem with touch-screen controls or their action?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
no

Did the Kindle Reader work OK, with regard to changing pages / turning pages, before this sometime? and if so, how long ago did it last work properly?
