Bircjlfx's Review of Kobo Books

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM

I previously used the kobo app and e-reader even though it was not as easy to use as Kindle because I wanted to support my local bookstore with my e-book purchases. Kobo now can only link with large stores like Walmart, which is very disappointing as the ability to support my local bookstore was the only reason I used this company. I will no longer be reading on the kobo app after this change.

Kobo Books is A NIGHTMARE.

Customer service is non existent. They do not respond. I want to cancel but get no response. Use audible and Amazon. This site ia a nightmare.

Easy to use, but not perfect.

Ghosty_Visuals's Review of Kobo Books

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM

The app itself is great and I’ve never had any issues with. However I feel quality of life upgrades are quite lacking. Such as interface, a few examples: -Better ways to organize your books -Better ways to take notes -Better ways to use the app in general with color and such Another quality of life item for me is that I have to get off the app to buy the book, then It’ll download. Why not have it where you can pay from the app too? Overall however the app is pretty great.

Terrible selection, absurd interface

Have not once found an audio book I was looking for. Can’t purchase through the app anyway, you need to waste your time with the web log in. Wish I’d never bothered.

Would recommend this app to anyone who reads, you can take a large number of books and you aren’t locked in to a closed system like kindle.

not great, to be honest

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM

Not terrible, but not great either. - takes a good number of taps and navigating to make notes or to find then - options to change fonts, line spacing and margins is limited (unlike on my h2o, where there are a lot of options) - background color choice is very limited, and text color cannot be changed - bugy: i get notified that i have opened my book on another device when i know i have not. another time my book got marked as read half way through without me intending to do it. and a couple of suggestions: - how about a setting that would allow the reader to keep page numbers regardless of font size. say a particular book is 200 pages in print. i would like the option to have those pages marked on my e reader as well. this 100% system of marking progress is really clumsy. - i would also like the option to read while holding my device in a way that my finger rests on the screen without highlights or notes or other helpful things popping up. there could be a way to activate and deactivate it easily - say by long pressing in one corner of the screen, and while activated, the device would only react to a gesture to turn the page, which would be elaborate enough so it would not be activated by accident... - changing font size would be nicer using buttons to incrementally increase/decrease. the current slider is clumsy and not as effective. doubt this will be read or considered by a human, but on an off chance.. good luck!

Poor account management

I downloaded it and it’s only giving me the option to sign in. I’m a first time user so I don’t have an account to sign in with. Am I missing something?
