The Kobo App makes reading even more comfortable and convenient:

• Start reading on one device and pick up on another. The Kobo App always remembers where you left off, so you can keep reading across all your devices.
• Share your love of reading on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Post your favourite quotes, notes, and thoughts from what you’re reading.
• Rate and review the books you’ve read or read reviews from booklovers like you!

For our passionate readers who love books as much as we do, we update the Kobo Books app as often as possible to continually improve on its reliability and performance.
Here's what's new in our latest release:

• Bug fixes and general improvements.
Thanks for reading with Kobo Books!
Ratings and Reviews
I have contacted Kobo, and I am sure this issue will be fixed but... when readers stop reading a book the next time you want to read it you have to download it. This means that the app is pretty useless once you leave home.

Would love the original themes back. The new ones aren't as nice. The option for the older ones instead would be very nice please.
Page for the entire book
I have noticed that there is not a way to have the number of pages for the entire book displayed in this app. This is a feature that I really like in the Ebook program. It would be great to see it in the app too.
