I haven't liked any method of reading a book except paper, this app adds very little extra to the experience. I don't like that when you bookmark a page, if you don't unmark it, the next time you open the book the bookmark is for that earlier bookmarked page. Super annoying and frustrating to figure out where you are in a book. I read the same chapter, at least in pieces, about 4 times. I need a book app that allows for bookmarks to flow with the last save. I'm not a huge fan of kobo and this app doesn't help my opinion at all. I'd prefer a paper book, but I don't like that you have to have a device to read the books for each different company. I'm not buying the hunger games trilogy for a 3rd time. Or any other paper book I already have. So I'm stuck with kobo. Great. Meh. At least it's portable and lighter than 7-10 books that I have in my kobo library. Hasn't deleted anything for me without my permission though. So that's a positive.
Maybe it is 3 stars but no more
This is an ok app but nothing that others don't have. The biggest issue happens after reading for a few minutes I am unable to turn the page. This is so annoying because I have to go out of the app, wait awhile, go back in then maybe the page turns. The only way to insure that the page will turn when this happens is power off. PITA.
I downloaded 4 books and when I have read them I won't be ordering more through Kobo. To much trouble.
Ignore the first review
I'm sorry if this app didn't work on your device, but I have been using this app on multiple devices and platforms, using different ebook types for over two years and I love it. This app is great and the reading achievements are quirky and fun!
