I love this app. It's easy and intuitive to use and the night mode is a great one for reading at night without disturbing your partner! My biggest complaint is that the cost of books seems to be getting steadily further and further apart from the Amazon counterpart making the Kindle look rather attractive for long term benefits. Secondly it would also be nice to be able to have a central cloud storage for imported books and a sync option. As a book reviewer I often receive ARC copies and to not be able to sync my imported reads across devices, whole not a deal breaker, can be less than ideal.
For such an elaborate app, the library is a chore to wade through. Why couldn't the books be presented in horizontal rows a la Nook? Also, with no online connection the covers of books go blank. That is not the case with Kindle or Google Play Books, and it's one reason I don't purchase as much as I'd like from Kobo. The vertical library is unnecessary and tedious. But Kobo is, overall, excellent. I hope consideration will be given to customers who like to see covers of books when data or Wi-Fi is out of reach.
The book purchase flow is effortless, but as an e-reader, this app falls down. Critically, it doesn't remember my last reading position. I have to create a bookmark each time I chose to stop reading. There's no control over justification, which makes reading in portrait mode unpleasant. I've had to switch to the app as a reader because my Kobo Aura ONE has failed.
Love this app but having a lot of trouble with it lately. First started off with having to go out and restart because it would freeze after 5 minutes of reading, then having to go back to same page over again many times, also it took so long to load. Now it just does not open at all! Wait for it to load for a few minutes then it just closes itself. I have reported this to kobo but have not received any feedback on what the issue is. There was approximately 1,000 books and now after paying for them all I am unable to read them! Very disappointed. Have tried logging out, restarting, uninstalling.
The largest font size isn't particulary big, enough for me but others may prefer larger. There isn't a option to choose justification, the books are full justification which occasionally makes characters in book look like they are take big breaths between words.
Not sure as can't get into my account. Does it not accept hotmail any more. Tried and tried. Then when try to reset password just says check Internet and try again. After 50attempts and yes I have WiFi I give up
