Fix your app
Love Kobo for classic free books, have enjoyed it on my android devices. Recently got a Windows 8 tablet and was pleased to see that Kobo was in the Windows Store. I understand that Windows 8 is still new enough to have bugs with it's apps but it seems that the Kobo app is constantly criticized for not being able to save your books locally. I try to save my books for offline reading, but have to re-download each time I log in. PLEASE WORK ON THIS ISSUE!More
Works as expected!
Not sure why this app has so many negative reviews, but don't be scared off. It seems to work great for me so far. I was able to download my books for reading offline, then disconnected my network connection to see if offline reading actually worked, and sure enough it did. The app did not crash either. I'm happy! Give it a go.More
Don't Get Rid Of Your Kobo
The app is fine. No trouble reading but I wish it had reading lists like the reader does. The worst thing is that it doesn't work offline. The "save for offline reading" feature seems good until you go offline and the app crashes on boot.More
Ever since the last windows update it won't run. I tried re-installing without any success. Still crashesMore
I can access my account, download my books, just like on my real Kobo, but this app crashes. Fix this!More
What's the point in having an app that doesn't support the same type of file as the android app, that's the only reason I downloaded this app, so I could sync up with my computer!. This really needs to be sorted!More
It's probably better on other platforms, but I think it's great! Its functional and that's all I'm looking for.More
Works well, but dictionaries would be good. Font size slider not accurate. Display better on the actual Kobo with e-ink, but that goes with using a backlit tablet and is not an issue with the app itself.More
Improving, with a long way to go.
The latest update has fixed several issues, but overall the app is still far behind Kobo readers on other platforms. - In spite of the Surface's much-hyped support for 'ClearType,' the font rendering in the Kobo app seems off. Compared to other apps, the text looks blurry and terrible. - No dictionary! - After downloading a book for offline reading, Kobo frequently forgets about it, and makes me do it again. - It's now better about remembering my reading settings, but there are still many bugs.More
