The Kobo Aura H2O came out in October 2014 and it was the first waterproof e-reader to hit the market. Many people were attracted to this device because it featured a 6.8 inch screen and can be used to read anywhere. One of the drawbacks of the H2O was the inability to pinch and zoom when reading PDF files, comics and or when using the internet browser. I am proud to report that a new firmware update solved this issue.
The new firmware update for the Kobo H2O is available now and will slowly be pushed out via WIFI. Once the 3.15 update is installed you want to turn off the water droplet notification setting in order to gain the ability to pinch and zoom digital content.
There is a few other changes in this new update for the H2O, including Chess removed from beta features, No more Beyond the Book – except for related books and a revamped UI for the on-device store.
