Review from Ari Jowett
Kob lets me read borrowe library books
I'm not too familiar with various ebook apps and neither am I too fussy, but I have a nostalgic appreciation for Kobo every so often when I download it again on a new device and can continue reading books in my library. I haven't had any issues with it either. What's not to like? It's a nice app!
Good - and getting better! The Kobo applications across multiple platforms are improving steadily. A large library with reasonable prices funnels into a solid and easily navigable application with customizable reading (and listening!) options. The sole drawback I encounter currently is an occasional local library deletion (all items are still easily re-downloaded). Screen flickering issues in past versions are now nearly eliminated. I prefer this digital library to others currently on the market. Read and enjoy!
Works fairly well for books with only text. The main thing I had a problem with was how it split up diagrams by basically breaking them into tiles that are split up across pages, making them nonsensical. There should be an option to see the whole picture/diagram via pop up window or pinch/zoom.
All it does is show books for sale. When logged in there is no way to get off the sale page and into my books. When I go directly into my books it won't open any of them. Just goes to the sales page, tells me I already have the book..takes me to the book in my books then when I cluck on it...back to the bloody sale page! Like ground hog day but worse. Bring back the proper Kobo app!
The app won't let me go to my books - it isn't even an option. It just wants to sell me books. It is constantly telling me to sign in no matter how I try it just keeps telling me to sing in. I cannot see books I have purchased. The app won't open on my computer so I can't read there either. I want my money back as this is a complete waste of time and money.
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.
