The official Kobo Books app has been released on the Windows Store in the month of March and since then it has received a good number of updates, which brought many new useful features to its users. Now, it has received the ability to import epub files and some more.
The official changelog of the Kobo Books app for Windows 8.1 says that it is now possible to import books in EPUB format, a feature that many of our readers and Kobo users from all over the world have been requested. Finally, it has been included inside app’s functionality to make it an even better eBook reader. Also, the option to share what you’re reading with Windows Share charm has been added, which makes the app more social and I’m sure you’ll want to boast in front of your friends of that huge book you’ve just finished.
