Contains Bugs - No sync for reading life
Whilst ok. There's not enough control over the text, ie line spacing, margins & colours.
Try switching on the Charcoal theme and you can actually see the text box is a different colour from everything else. Now use the animated page control and randomly the page will not turn, combine that that with a long finger swipe and sometimes you'll go forwards and sometimes backwards. More testing should have been done. If you have reading life then it should sync with the existing Kobo account, not, run separately. I'm disappointed with the quality.
Could be Better
I think this app is pretty good however the layout is a bit confusing and the books you've just bought don't show up under books so you have to go into all of your book, find the books you want and then download them.
Couldn't disagree more
I've just downloaded a book I've searched for for ever......paid .80 pence! Had no problems so far, and for that money I can cope with a slight blip!
People are just moaners.....enjoy!
