Customer Reviews

I really like Kobo

I have read all the very negative reviews, and I have to say that none of the complaints these people have have ever happened to me. I think the app is easy to use and maneuver through. I love the definitions and the "look up in book" or in Google options. The only things I would do different would be to go back to the library format you had when I first started using this app. I would also find a way to leaf through the book easier. I find that having to hold down to get through to different parts of the book can be annoying. Could you make it so that if you were wanting to go to chapter 5, you could just go to that chapter? Just a great app in my opinion.

Bug fixes needed!!!

I am a long time user of Kobo and really enjoy the variety of books they offer. My biggest complaint is as so many others have said... The pages hang or won't turn ahead, they turn back 1 or 2 pages instead. This is absolutely infuriating when it is every 4 pages or so. The fonts also do not change. You get one basic publishers font no matter which one you choose. Is anyone at Kobo reading these reviews? Please fix these issues with the next update! And please make it quick... Thanks!

Annoyingly bad

This app has issues. No updates seem to be able to fix the fact that is slows down for loading chapters and often hangs and won't turn pages. It makes me nuts when it will suddenly flip backwards a page rather than going forward when just tapping the right side of the screen.

Just too many issues to make it enjoyable when reading. It interrupts the pleasure of reading. I only use it for books I bought from Sony's old store. Seriously, Kobo should use the old Sony Reader app if they want something that works.
