If you are no stranger to the e-reading app culture you already know that Kobo has some of the best quality ebook reading apps available. They have e-reading applications for Blackberry, iOS, Android, PC, MAC, and have exclusive apps designed for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Blackberry Playbook and the Sharper Image Literati. Rounding off their portfolio they have now issued a new reading app for the Windows 7 line of phones, made by Samsung!
If you are looking for a quality company to do business with that has all of the latest bestsellers, newspapers and magazines, check out the Windows Phone Marketplace. The Kobo app is a free app, but of course it costs to buy the books.
This application does not really look or function like any of the other Kobo apps on the other platform. On most menus and even the main GUI there is no word even of Kobo at all. It features a main screen with your new books listed and contains a bookshelf to show you all of the books stored in your library.
While reading books it has settings to change the book color background and a slew of new features. You can lock the orientation of the book within the app, so you don’t need to lock your main phone rotation settings, the app does it for you.
Aside from these functions you can add bookmarks, look up words in the dictionary and more. The website below made a step by step review of the app in action, check it out.
