Kobo has a good library and the eReaders are great, however the app is not a highlight. Room for lots of improvementa, the app is not intuitive, searching for books is a frustrating experience, recommendations are off. One would like to see a well design homepage where to sort new books, recommended ones, trending, categories, ratings, top rated, etc, etc. You need to invest in UX experts...

This app is adequate for reading and for acquiring books from Libby/Overdrive and Kobo. It syncs app and Kobo device adequately for media acquired from those sources. It's cumbersome to transfer other drm-free reading matter to and from Kobo device. I particularly dislike being unable to change page number display and margin size with the app. It shows pages in chapter but not pages in book if you're reading on an android phone. Apparently it's more iOS friendly. Irritating.

The reader is fine and works as designed. I would give a 4 star review overall, but it requires connection to the Internet to open. The books are locally saved to the device. There is no excuse for requiring Internet connection for access. That is unacceptable design and should be corrected.
