Kobo links to the store of the same name, and if you create an account you can even download free books within the app. Kobo offers a more interactive and social reading experience, which may be a plus or a minus, depending on your views. Users can sign into their Facebook and Twitter accounts and share likes, notes, progress, and see what other people you know are reading or have liked. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to turn this functionality off and set your account to “private,” which is troubling from a major retailer. Users who don't want the sharing functionality can use the app as a standalone reader but, when used this way, the app doesn’t have any features that substantially elevate it over apps such as BlueReader.

Introducing audiobooks from Kobo — our brand new expertly curated collection. Simply add a book to your collection on Kobo, and find it in your app immediately afterwards — all your eBooks and audiobooks together, in one convenient app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

The Kobo App makes reading even more comfortable and convenient:

• Customize the way you read. Enjoy crisp, clear text in the size and style you prefer. Try Night Mode to make reading easier on your eyes before bedtime, and lock the screen in portrait or landscape mode.

• Our beautifully designed, easy-to-use player makes it simple for you to move through your audiobook with a single touch. Never worry about losing your spot, and see how much time is left at a glance. Schedule it to turn off after a set amount of time—perfect for listening before going to sleep.

• Read thousands of free eBook previews or listen to audiobook samples to help you find your next favourite.

• Start reading on one device and pick up on another. The Kobo App always remembers where you left off, so you can keep reading across all your devices.

• Share your love of reading on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Post your favourite quotes, notes, and thoughts from what you’re reading.

• Rate and review the books you’ve read or read reviews from booklovers like you!
