Still buggy despite it being on the market a while

The swipe function didn't work, and despite a restart, still wouldn't correct itself. I had the Sony reader and as Kobo was forced upon customers abandoned by Sony, not much choice but to continue with Kobo so one doesn't lose one's collection of ebooks. Works better on Windows platform than Apple.

Its better than before, sort of

I don't like that the only way I can read my magazine subscriptions is through my phone, or a tablet I don't want to purchase. It is annoying and I can barely reading without zooming in to an already default zoom which does not always fit the navigation for the page. I'd like to be able to read it on my laptop as well. I also can not link my reader to it with the app since the desktop doesn't work on windows 10. Otherwise its great and easy to navigate.

The best e-reader for a windows phone. The kindle app for windows has limited functions for the Windows phone. Nook isn't even available for the Windows phone. Kobo is fully functional with an extensive store that you can access on the Windows platform. (the Kindle app doesn't allow you to buy books from a windows phone). So bottom line is if you want a great reader app for your Windows phone...or any other platform go with Kobo.

not up to par compared to iPhone/Android

Japanese books are unreadable. How hard could it be to get manga images to show up? No easy way to group books by author or series, only sort. As an owner of the Aura H2O, it's maddening that I can't use my phone to get some reading done when I don't have the reader with me.

Notes & Highlights

I love the KOBO over any other reading platform or device. However, I miss the feature to highlight and take notes in this Windows App. My KOBO app for the Mac OS does allow highlights and notes. In addition, I would like to see a copy highlight feature for quotes in research papers. The Kindle app allows this feature which greatly assists my academic work.

The interface is clean and easy to use most of the time, to be perfect it should allow user to take notes, highlight text and should included a build-in dictionary.

Great interface

Great job on interface. Easy to select books or purchase them. Pin book to start. Would rate five stars if highlighting and notes were available.

Good, but Needs Work

This app seems very beautifully made, and the functions work very well. However I hate the tap left or right side to flip pages, and strongly wish that I could disable it. Secondly, there are no highlighting or dictionary options, which I require and use frequently. A very simple, but noticeable thing is the lack of page flip transition animations. It's a small thing, but it's sad that it is missing. Even still despite its major flaws, the layout is very clean and appealing. Its menus are easy to navigate too.
