It was a few months ago that the official Kobo app came to Windows 8. Kobo is a company that makes the popular Kobo eReader in addition to apps for mobile platforms. Today we can add Windows Phone to that list of mobile platforms that has Kobo Books.
Head into the Windows Phone Store and you'll find Kobo Books sitting at version 1.0. Note that this is a Universal Windows application.
With this first release of Kobo Books for Windows Phone, we get the following notable features:
- 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.
- Get access to more than 4M titles in the Kobo store including best sellers, new releases, classics, comics, and kids books.
- Quick access to your recent reads within the app and from Live tiles.
- All those features are in addition to the 4 million free and affordable eBooks you'll find inside Kobo Books for Windows Phone.
