Kobo Reading Read Books & Magazines iPhone App Review

Kobo Reading App for iPhone focuses on providing a more interactive and social reading experience, which may be a plus or a minus, depending on your views. You can sign into SNS such as Twitter or Facebook and share likes, notes, progress, and see what other people you know are reading or have liked. On the flip side, rather strange in fact, there is no way to turn this feature off and set your account ‘private’. This might be a turn off to those privacy conscious users. The app supports books in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese. The UI is well designed and easy to navigate. It is also slick and responsive.

Best Reading App

Kobo Read Books and Magazines for iPhone is a decent ebook reading app that provides an interactive and social reading experience. In fact, it is also its disadvantage as users got no option to keep the app a private standalone reader, which is a bit strange. The ability to lock the app in either portrait or landscape mode is a nice touch. Free previews help you to wisely choose the books you want to read. It also got few customization options to suit individual reading styles and preferences. SNS integration comes handy. The UI is largely user friendly as well. Check it out if you’re scouting for a reliable ebook reader app.
