Good

It is one of the best reading apps, but there are a few UI issues. Ine of then is the bookshelf, please make it like IBook's or moon reader where you can have the covers of the books like if they were in a real bookshelf. Another problem is the loading process, it lasts a lot and when we are reading and we go to the next chapter it lasts a lot too so please work on it. The last problem would be that sometimes we want ro choose our own covers not the ones that some books bring. I think that is just the few problems the app has the rest is excellent. Keep up the good work and thanks for your time working on Windows!!!

Good reader

Easy to use, does the job, well integrated with the shop. However sometimes my current page is lost and I have to flip a lot of pages to recover it. Features missing: Dimming the font for nightly reading, and Bing translate integration.

Varying versions of app

I wish then app was the same across platforms, if the windows version kept track of my books and length of time spent reading I would appreciate it more.

was good but missing annotation features, now crashes

Was decent, although missing features. Recently started crashing without opening on my Asus note 8 running Windows 10. Uninstalled to use desktop app, which, while uglier, actually opens without crashing.

New app worse than old ones

Can't search library, can't use annotations, can't view annotations, most of the features are gone. You can tell they spent most of the time on the store and not the reading experience. I remember a couple years ago I used the old windows app to annotate a novel with my notes for writing an essay. It was very helpful. This is impossible now. Kobo better put these features back in or I am gone.

Awesome

It truly is easy to use. Has all of my books on file to read later on phone, tablet, laptop or PC. I can pick up where I left off from one device to the other. So I do sincerely recommend it to any and everyone.
