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.

Great choices and very user friendly, but poor in tailoring future recommendations to personal tastes. Awards are cute and updated stats are always welcome; I particularly like the seamless bookmark, highlight, and word lookup features.
