On trying to open the app you get the message "Allow Kobo Books to access your contacts?". I choose Deny. Next message says "To sign in with Google+ you'll need to enable Contacts permission. Kobo will never access the information in your Contacts." So, what's the point of the first message? I found it easier to use the Kobo app via Windows.
Terrible app, overcrowded with offers, pause and play buttons are tiny, only 10 second rewind and forward options (30 seconds would have been better).. only positive thing is the option to scroll left or right to navigate through the track. I've used a few audiobooks apps and this one is by far at the bottom of the pole.
Having previously leaving a bad review of the app, I have changed my mind, due to my own fault. Once logged in properly I am able to use all the features of the app. It can be slow to load but the fact I am able to store several books in one place rather than worry about storage space for several book the app is fairly convenient.
Contacted Kobo to sorted out the account problem. They solved the account problem. But this app still will not log me in. Cannot be bothered to wait again when ringing to solve it.
Great app because I love to read but for some reason when you click on a book to read the description and you push the back button it doesn't take you back where you were. Which I hate because now I have to start all over again
Finally got it working! Im using this app on my lg g5. Everytime I do a search and press back button it brings me to the home menu not the last page I was on when looking at books available.
