1 million FREE Books – Read Kobo eBooks! Review - Despite some slowness, e-book app works well in general
Intro: We’re fast approaching the day when the App Store will include just as many e-reading apps as novelty fart apps. The latest e-reading app I looked at for Macworld—after Kindle, iBooks, Nook, and Stanza—is eBooks by Kobo, a free e-reader from Kobo. (In its iPhone-only days, the app went by a different name—Shortcovers—until a name switch last December.) Now, if you decide to try out the app, make sure you get the universal eBooks by Kobo app, and not the iPad-only Kobo HD app, which is no longer supported yet, confusingly, remains in the App Store...
Final words: I don’t know that the world needs yet another e-book competitor, but that’s not my call. If Kindle, iBooks, Nook, and the rest haven’t yet sated your unique e-reading hunger, Kobo’s certainly worth a shot; generally speaking, it works fine. But unless the developer can address the app’s occasional slowness—when changing chapters and when turning pages—Kobo will remain my last e-reading choice on the iPad and iPhone.

Kobo’s iPad app is the best ereader app on the market
Intro: If you have an iPad, you should download the free Kobo ereader app and check it out. Whether it offers a better basic reading experience than the other ereader apps is probably a matter of taste, but it offers so many bonus features that it’s hands down the best–and most entertaining–iPad app for ebooks...
Final words: There are some other nice touches, like how the cover art zooms to fill the screen briefly when you open a book, and it even offers some magazine and newspaper subscriptions (mostly for Canadian papers). But mainly I’m just impressed by how Kobo has layered so many fun and informative features on top of the experience, and in a way that’s unobtrusive (you can turn off all alerts if you like). After using it for three weeks, I sort of hate opening my Kindle for the iPad app now…
Kobo Beats iBooks with International iPad Bookstore, App
Intro: If you’re one of the people around the world buying an iPad today, you might want to check out Apple’s iBooks e-reading app (you might also want to call in sick to work, as you won’t be getting much done today). But when you flip the virtual bookcase to enter the store, you’ll be disappointed: Launch-day is here, but all you can buy in the store outside the US is a pile of dusty public-domain titles. It seems that no deals have been inked with international publishers. UPDATE: The premium iBook Store has gone live in the UK. Spain is still down...
Final words: Best of all, it’s free, so you can try it out as soon as you realize that iBooks is a big disappointment. It comes with five free books to start you off, too. Oh, and if you really have to, you can customize the bookshelf to use the same glitzy (chintzy) wood-effect you’ll find in iBooks.
Kobo iPad App Review
Intro: Kobo Books is one of the major EPUB ebook retailers. Their motto is "We believe consumers should be able to read any book, anytime, anywhere, and on the device of their choice." Thus, Kobo offers their ebooks on a wide range of platforms, with apps for smartphones like the iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Palm Pre, and others...
Final words: One of the main strengths of the Kobe iPad app is the appearance and layout of the Kobo eBook Store. Everything is nicely organized and broken down into categories and subcategories. There are different sorting options: best rated, price, bestseller, title, etc. And there are multiple sections for award winners, Oprah's book club, NYT Bestseller list, etc.
Kobo Review for iPhone – iPod Touch and iPad
Intro: An era of eBook reading has taken over the world, and with the advancement of technology reading a Book, or to say any Book, has become as easy as 1, 2, and 3. In this review we will review Kobo, an eBook reader app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad...
Final words: In the end, we would just like to say that the app is really amazing – although looking at the eBook Store section of the app we came to the conclusion that the app does not have 1.8 million FREE eBooks. It ‘may’ have 1.8 million eBooks, but they surely are not free. There is a free section though. Due to its user friendly layout, and its ease of use we will rate the app an 8/10.
