Some issues Love the app as I can read on either the reader or cell. One down side is some series are missing books and have contacted both author and kobo help (no one got back to me with an answer, then to contact the other party, and she has another book out no sign of it in store) and had to buy the off another site and transfer.
Usefull I initially agreed with D Summers. App wouldn't let me sign on Samsung Note II. Per tech support at Kobo I uninstalled and reinstalled. App works fine. I don't use it to read as much as to review what I've recently read on Kobo eReader. It is very usefull for that -> ADDENDA: Reduce stars to 2.75. Android app does not read notes made on K reader and vice versa. App apparently has lost the placemarks for all 8 pages of annotations in recent book. Now all annotations take me only to cover of book!
Hard time reading Please add more backgrounds: Night mode is good, but for daytime reading, Original is too contrast and Sepia is not much better than the Original. Add more fonts: to make the reading more comfortable. Please add an option to adjust , or just make the fonts bolder, because they seem thin, and to compensate, I make the font bigger, but this makes the pages to have very few lines. Otherwise, u have the best store. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO MY REVIEW.
please do understand that this app is the best in the market even best than the kindle . i absolutely loved the phrase share feature and its dictionary but there is a reason I am giving this app one star. 1. I am trying for the past 2 hours to import my epub files but i m not getting them 2.My purchases with flipkart e book reader(now owned by KOBO R) arent getting restored. 3. the file importing is stuck as in for an hour now. 4. due to this app i had to power off my phone more than 20 times now. 5. but seriously the app is a five star. 6. solve my issues and I ll change my review.
The app would be greatly improved with just a few well-thought options. One of the advantages of ebooks is layout customization, which the Kobo app largely lacks. Better options for linespacing, fonts, background colors, and page transitions would make the reading experience more enjoyable. The homepage of the app feels lacking, showing only two purchased books, and a couple dozen reccomemdations. I have about six different e-reading apps, and by far, Kobo has the least room for customization.
It is good but needs improvement I was using flipkart ebooks & after migrating to Kobo, after some initial hiccups, I am as comfortable with the app as flipkart ebooks. However, they do not have SBI internet banking payment facility and it would be so much better for Indian customers if they could include that in their payment options. Further, it would be so much better if the kobo app, like flipkart ebook app, could support the reading of the ebooks and thus could very conveniently make audio books out of ebooks at no extra cost.
