This app would get five stars if the recommend reads worked better. I have removed the same books via the 'not interested' button multiple times, yet they keep coming back up. Also, if you're going to recommend me a book in a series, please recommend the first book so I don't have to go hunting down the actual first book or possible spoilers.
I've had Kobo for years and have over 200 books. LOVED the app until this latest update. It stripped off many very useful features and hid a few (wouldn't have been so bad to hide/move them if a quick overview had been given) so now it's hard to find anything. I had a great system going with my lists and categories so I knew what books I was missing from different series, what I'd read and hadn't etc. Having everything in one enormous list is NOT an improvement. I will be using another book app/service until this is fixed. I am one disappointed customer.
This app has become a necessity in my daily life. I've been using it for years and have never had an issue with anything. The prices are comparable to any other site, you can get great freebies, and all my favorite authors are here! New book recommendations are emailed to me so I never miss the next in a series and have found a ton of new favorites as well. Of all the apps I have ever downloaded, this is the one I can't do without!
Bring back the old icon! Red is my favorite color but I hate this new icon, bring back the blue!!! And make the recommendation list identical across all platforms. I remove suggestions from the mobile app but they stay on the website or desktop app & vice versa. And if I have a book bundle in my library stop recommending individual books that are already included in that bundle. Also, when I'm 90% done with a book in a series the app keeps suggesting books earlier in the series as my next read, please have it consider series order when making suggestions. Would also be great if a series was shown in reading order instead of alphabetical.
I love my Kobo app! I don't know how I managed to read books so long without it! Best app ever! The only thing Id l change would be the way you choose your font size. Its little hard to set because its a sliding scale. A point or number scale would be much easier.
Slow! Doesn't provide profile settings, like language or genre preferences to aid in ebook searching. Suggest developers look at other e-reader and storefront apps to see how Kobo can be improved. I love the Kobo e-reader hardware, but this app is driving me to Kindle.
If you are seeing a blank sign-in or store page, please update your Chrome Browser or Android System WebView app.
