This is a really good app. It's easy to navigate and very user friendly. There could be more personalization options once you start reading a book, but that's a minor detail.

I think this app is pretty good! It does what it sets out to do by offering both a store and an e-reader. Now the reader itself needs some work, Edit: Manga is now fully supported, though because of the reader I believe it still goes left to right when reading.

Convenient, but --

Handy app to get through Kobo books purchased; but, it doesn't work well if you close down your device and pick it up later. I also get tired of being pitched additional books constantly.

No "Your Library" Search on Windows, Bad UI

The title says it. You're unable to search wthin your own library. Instead, an only store-seach is offered. If you own the book, the overview screen suggests you still need to purchase it--there is no "Read Now" option available. Going to the book's page shows a "View in Library" option. However, this takes you to an unwieldy list of all of your books instead. If you would like to sort your library to make finding the book easier, there is no option to make a more condensed list. If you have a lot of books, scrolling through the giant image-art is painful and slow.

Perfect for my needs.

I recently upgraded from a Kobo eReader to a tablet, this app serves perfectly for moving my eBook library to a new home. I wish there were better options for sorting and organizing the library. For example I would like to be able to sort by author or genre.

Good but missing annotation features

Overall a decent, stable app on my 8.1 tablet and aesthetically good. However, it's missing annotation sync and the ability to add new annotations makes it quite limited. Add this feature, and it'd be tons better.

Bare minimum

This is more of a store for selling books than it is an eReader app. It's okay to have a store, but that's NOT the entire of a a good app. Kobo really needs to work on the eReader side of this app. MISSING FEATURE - Sideloaded books (like a gift from someone or a book from Guttenberg) need to sync between my Windows app and my Kobo glo. When you only sync the books you sold me, you're making it too obvious that you're not making an eReader app, you're making a store and only grudgingly adding the bare minimum reader functions. MISSING FEATURE - Full and TOTAL choice on font size for display. Some times you're trying to read on a treadmill and you NEED **MASSIVE** font.
