When Kobo relaunched their Windows 8 app earlier this year they also mentioned that a related app for Windows Phone was in the works. That app launched with little fanfare yesterday.
Windows Phone users now have a new option for reading in addition to the Kindle and
Nook apps. The Kobo app is free to download from the Windows Phone Store, and it offers access to a catalog of some 4 million titles, including ebooks, comics, and children's books.
I haven't tried the app (no Windows Phone), but according to the listing the features include:
- Pick up right where you left off. We’ll sync your bookmarks so you can keep reading across all your devices.
- Customize your reading experience. Enjoy crisp, clear text, in the size and style you prefer or try Night Mode for easier nighttime reading.
- Enjoy first chapter previews for thousands of select books and save them in your library.
- Quick access to your recent reads within the app and from Live tiles.
Have you tried the app? What did you think?
