KOBO Surface App. On a Surface Pro Outstanding

I own both a KOBO Glow & a Surface Pro. The KOBO is great for it's weight and use in bright or dark places. I just loaded the KOBO app. On my Surface as I found an e-book with maps The maps were for most part unreadable. The Surface app. Takes advantage of the Surface's great screen & the clarity is amazing. App. Is easy to use for any KOBO owner. It also shows side by side pages, just like a real book! It also shows side by side pages, just like a real book! The only issue is the Surface's weight vs. the KOBO's. After a while you need to rest the Surface on your lap or a table. Give it a test drive.

kobo

Being an older individual, I don't like the small font (even at the largest setting),

Kobo for Windows mobile is not the worst eBook reader but, amazingly enough it's worse than Kindle for Windows mobile. (Both Kindle and Kobo for other OSs are tolerable and much better that the Windows mobile iterations.) Kobo for Windows mobile has (at least) the following problems: No viable search inside the book you are reading, the application bogs (even on a fast phone) while opening and while navigating inside the book, book marking is on left side not right and bookmarking gets tricky at times in vertical mode because it bumps into Windows menu items, setting the size of the type with the slider is difficult without preview or size references, type antialiasing doesn't work quite right even with house fonts, images are static, type rendering sometimes misses words while swapping from vertical to horizontal view, type is sometimes erratically displayed when changing views, no way to take notes, no way to highlight, no social interaction, and on and on. Not a useful ereader:(

Need to improve performance

I like the UI. However, it is slower than Nook (loading chapter) and doesn't have dictionary.

Far and away better than Kindle's Modern app.

Kobo has always been a great competitor to Barnes and Noble and Amazon. While I have to admit I like the Nook Modern app, this blows both away. In addition to being able to shop for and read your books and magazines from the Kobo store, you can also import ebook files from elsewhere into your local library, and this has been a great feature for getting through my Doctor Who ebook backlog. The Kobo store is packed, and has all the big releases and plenty of content from my favorite indie authors as well. Amazon only wins the numbers game, and I find the selections roughly equal in terms of quality, but I favor Kobo for better supporting bookstores and authors. The app is very straightforward, cleanly designed, and easy to figure out. As mentioned before, the added support for external ebooks makes it even better, saving me the trouble of installing an additional app. All in all, worlds better than Amazon's idea of what constitutes an "app".

Luv THIS APP.

I'M ABLE TO READ MY BOOKS AND I HAVE MANY, ANYTIME I WANT. I HAVE THIS APP ON MY LAPTOP, TABLET AND SMART PHONE. EASY ACCESS ALWAYS

Outstanding reading app and experience. Nice to pin books to the start page. These folks have been updating, improving, and listening to their users. This it's now my favorite reading app by far for WP. Great book selection also. The only improvements I can think of is to offer page turning transitions, offer more live tile experience, and keep speeding it up as you have been doing. 5 star app all the way!

Enjoy Book

This is a great app for reading books. It is easier to delete books after reading than Kindle.

Not very good.

I really want to like this app, but it needs work. Some of my books won't open at all. There is no dictionary that I can find. The app crashes frequently. I hope this app gets fixed and I will update my review.
