User reviews of Kobo Books
Book pages are often missing on my Nexus (4.0.1).

Can not read my books on pendo pad, runs android. now answer from kobo how to fix the problem...I am using app on desktop with no problems, but very disappointed it does not work on my pad! Got this to enjoy outside life with my books!

I don't understand how people could hate this app. I've tried other readers and Kobo is by far the best. So easy to use, perhaps too easy for some people. Great work Kobo! A+

It's a gimmick for developers to make apps that cannot be uninstalled like this one. I hate wasting my memory and not having control of what's in my tablet. The claim of 1.8 million free books seems to be a joke too. I couldn't find them.

Good for reading on a phone The app works well. Enlarging text and flipping pages can be done easily. It doesn't recognize that a book has been read once you close it (finished reading it) and open it again. Also, the home page can get cluttered with suggestions.

Good App Love having my library with me wherever I go. I don't necessarily need all the recommendations. Too much clutter.
