Heads up Windows Phone users, if you’re looking for an alternative way to get ebooks onto your Windows Phone handset, you’re in luck because it has recently been announced that the Kobo app has officially made its way onto the Windows Phone platform, thus allowing users to shop and purchase ebooks from Kobo’s own ebook store.
The app itself is free to download from the Windows Phone Store, as expected, and users will have to purchase their own books. According to the app’s description, it will allow users to pick up right where they left off, meaning that if you own a Kobo ereader device or have the app installed on another phone or tablet, you won’t have to scroll through the pages to find out where you left off.
The app will allow users to adjust the reading mode. For example there will be a Night Mode that will allow the user to enjoy their reading at night, which is usually a darker background so that the light won’t be so harsh to the eyes. The app will also take advantage of Windows Phone’s live tiles to allow users to jump straight into the book that they were reading before they closed the app.
According to Kobo, their store has more than 4 million titles to choose from, so if you’re looking for an alternative to other ebook stores, like Amazon, Kobo could be worth taking a look at.
