Terrible app, worse customer service
The app itself isn't very good. The Kindle app is noticeably better, but the iBooks app is by far the best. Scrolling is much more natural on a phone/tablet than turning arbitrary ebook pages. It is odd that only iBooks offers you that option.
If you have a problem with your purchased book, don't expect any help from Kobo. I bought a book, but Kobo sent me the wrong edition ebook (no annotations, etc). After I contacted them, they pretended to be understanding and indicated that I would be refunded, and they never followed through. You will be better served finding a less dodgy company to do business with.
The Kobo reader on my iPad Mini works just great! Kobo has some of the same books as the other popular readers, but does a very good job publishing first-time or little-known authors. That makes it attractive to me because I like "discovering" new authors, and have found several outstanding books on Kobo that I may have never have found elsewhere. :)
I like it. Used to be an all-iBooks person. But now I buy exclusively through kobo. I like supporting my local indie bookstore. I haven't had any problems for a very long time so I can't comment on customer support. The app itself is excellent. Love it.
