The official Kobo Books app has been released in the Windows Store for Windows 8 and 8.1 users at the beginning of previous month and now it has received its first big update which adds some much needed features. Read below for more features.
It doesn’t matter if you have used Kobo before or not or even today, if you own or not a Kobo device. At the moment, anybody can download the official eReader Kobo Books app from the Windows Store and install it on your touch and desktop Windows 8, 8.1, as well as on Windows RT. With a size of slightly more than 15 megabytes, the app lets you browse from over 4 million free and affordable eBooks, comics and children’s books. It is currently avaialable in English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, French (Canada), Italian, Dutch and Portuguese (Brazil) languages.
According to the release note, the new version of Kobo Books brings the following – improved chapter navigation and bookmarks, quicker library loading, keyboard navigation in the reading experience and fixed library sorting by author name. So, as we can see, this isn’t necessarily a minor update, as it brings quite a lot of new features. I’ve been using the app for myself and have had problems with chapter navigation and bookmarks; but now this has been solved and everything seems smoother and much faster.
With Kobo, you can read on your Windows device anywhere, anytime. Download the Kobo app and browse from over 4 million free and affordable eBooks, comics and children’s books.
What I especially like about the official Kobo Books app for Windows devices is that its user interface is very clean and that managing eBooks is really easy and pleasant. Leave your comment below and let me know of your own impressions and also follow the link to download it.
