We have talked about the official Kobo Books eReader app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users which has landed on the Windows Store a few days ago. Now it has received its first important update that we’re going to talk about below

If you are on Windows 8, 8.1 or Windows RT and you also own a Kobo eReader device or have an account with Kobo, then you need to go ahead and download the application (link at the end of the article) and start enjoying from over 3.5 million available in the Store. Improvements and important updates have made their way to the app already, less than one week after the app has been submitted to the Windows Store. It comes with an approximate size of 15.4 megabytes and can be downloaded for free, but you need an account to browse the store.

Kobo app for Windows 8 updated

With Kobo, you can read on your Windows device anywhere, anytime. Download the Kobo app and browse from over 3.5 million free and affordable eBooks, comics and children’s books.

According to the latest release note on the app’s official page on the Windows Store, here’s what’s new – improved synching with an existing Kobo library, improved paging for Fixed layout books; as well as reading experience improvements and the usual performance and stability upgrades. I don’t have a Kobo device, nor do I have an account, so in the video from below I tried to record how I sign up for a new account and how the interface looks like.

As you can see for yourself, after having bought a free eBook from the Kobo Store, it doesn’t get automatically synchronized to your Kobo library, albeit the update should fix this. Also, the Store interface is nothing more but the same interface that you get when opening a web page, which is quite a pity, but I hope this will get improved in the future, as well.
