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.

Disappointing The flipping of pages is really weird. The response is laggy. The night mode is severely lacking. It's too bright and hurts my eyes. I would like to be able to adjust the brightness of the words on screen - make them less bright.
