Slowly improving with each update. Still has a way to go. Would love to see many features that Aldiko already has.
horrible constantly downloads books over and over again errors and more errors on Evo fails repeatedly in airplane mode do not waste your money
Wonderful app..easy and way faster than other highly rated apps like aldiko and fbreader...and has good titles for free...can read epub format 5 star

Not bad, wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised! Really enjoying this a lot more than Border's app, which looks similar but DOESN'T WORK.
On Archos 70 Android 2.2 Tablet Kobo filea dont work. No refund given on books purchased. BEWARE
Okay reader but really needs bluetooth syncing and features of Aldiko ebook reader to be my main ebook app.
Needs too let you edit the book title and picture and also the book reading settings
Needs App2SD. This is my favorite ereader app. I use Calibre to optimize ebooks 4 use w/Kobo that I obtain elsewhere.
Tried Kindle as well. This is way better and has free books. Also easier to search for books.
