Worst reading app ever. It won't let me download the books that I paid for, even when I have full internet connection. It always tells me that I need internet access when I do have full wifi! I can never open up the books that I bought. If you plan to read books during flights, this app will never work. I tried to open up books that I downloaded previously(after multiple tries over a few days) it still didn't open! and it uses up data for nothing. why is it always trying load something when all I want is to open my books to read! I switched the Google Play books and it is so much better. I can read books offline, unlike the Kobo app. I wish I didn't waste my money buying books through Kobo.
Crashing on Nexus 6P At first it crashed on Android 7, which I thought 'OK, maybe it hasn't been optimized'. But then I downgraded to 6 again and the app still crashed, which makes me think that this is an app issue and not an OS issue. Hope you get this fixed soon.
New phone small problem Had an issue getting logged in for the first time with latest Android phone. Turned out pop-ups were blocked and that may have contributed to seeing a blank after selecting basic Sign In.
Seems quite slow but I'm running a7 on an ace 3. Maybe a processor speed problem still it should optimise better for platform. General functionality and concept is good though.
How? How do you manage to cause so much chaos and unusability on so many platforms? On Android I can't remove a downloaded book. Windows version deleted all of my books and BB just crashes all the time.
Pretty good This app, in general, does what it is supposed to do. It is easy to navigate, simple to search, purchase, download. The suggestion service is decent. Etc. It does, occasionally, go blank when I return to the app from another and I have to get out of the book and return.
