Works. Does what it's supposed to do.

I have no qualms with much of the app besides

1. Multi-page highlighting. Would it be possible to allow us to drag a highlight over a page turn without having to muck with the font size to put everything on the same page first?

2. Picture quote function. Still a square - no doubt a vestige of the old Instagram days. 9:16 has since become the new hotness, guys.


Quite upsetting

Vince Flynn’s books suddenly arent available for purchase from Singapore. Im still wondering why. Ive been reading his books for quite some time and just realised today that i couldnt find any for purchase from my country? If some titles just decide to vanish, I think soon some might just divert somewhere else other than kobo. Its sad, kobo used to be the best site for me. But has now raped me of reading my favourite series at book 7. :(


Problems with May 2018 update

With latest (May 2018) update, all my side-loaded PDFs have gone (yes, I’ve done the Adobe login) and the dictionary feature has gone missing. It’s a good app when it works, but updates often break things....

And no, you can still not highlight across pages....

—- OLD—-
Latest version (Feb 2017) has a new problem. One can no longer highlight text across more than one page. If seems that every time there's a cosmetic upgrade, core functionality takes a step back.

Now March 2017 version tries to add 'sort by date added', but the sort is completely wrong. Looks close to random. Not working...
