Review from Gary Latendresse
Been using kobo since 2011.. ever since bought ereader..now use my 10.6" tablet...better then buying the actual novel because too painful to hold. With tablet a breeze!
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!
New bugs and no customer care!!!... I loved this app and used it daily until suddenly it stopped letting me purchase books from the store. So I uninstalled it to try and fix this and now it won't even let me log in. I have tried to contact kobo repeatedly and three weeks later still have no response or help. Don't waste money. Use the kindle app. I have spent hundreds on various books and now have no access to them through the app.
My only complaint is the lack of fonts available. Publisher default is fine, but more choices would be nice. I'd also really like to see a blue light filter option, similar to the "night light" feature in Play Books, or the ComfortRead on the Kobo Aura One eReader.
Great app. I'm on it everyday to check out the sales. Information about the products is provised with images, descriptions and useful reviews. The only thing I'm unable to do is manage my wish list, which I can only do through the Kobo itself and not my phone.
I miss the old homepage, I miss seeing the rest of my library or the previews I had downloaded for myself, rather than books I haven't picked. That being said I do like the update to the recommendations and that I can specify that I've already read it!
It won't show me the books I have had purchased for years. Really upset. I tried downloading the books from the website but now they won't open. It just wants to sell me new books not let me read the old ones.
