What's New in Version 7.1
Here’s what’s new for v7.1:
1. A new Home screen featuring your recent reading activity and monthly stats.
2. Easier access to key terms, author info and public notes directly from your book’s menu.
3. Expanded support for books and magazines with built-in media, such as graphics and videos.
So many things to like about the app, but hasn't got the basic thing right i.e. the formatting! Bought a Rome travel guide and the formatting is atrocious. Single pages don't display on a single page, headings are cramped and overlay other text, maps and keys display on separate pages so they're almost impossible to use......the list goes on! Of course this could be the publishers fault but it makes the experience pretty sour when you've paid nigh on £10 for the privilege!
As I am a Kobo fan this app can do no wrong in my book as being able to read my books on different devices is perfect as means I am never with out something to read !
I love this app. The fact that when im stupid enough to forget my kobo or when im sat on the bus i can still read my books is a life saver :) love it, love it, love it
