App Description

Join millions of readers around the world and access eBooks and audiobooks all with one app. Go shelf-less and take your reading adventures on the go. With over 6 million titles to choose from, there's something for every type of reader and listener.

Purchase eBooks and audiobooks directly from Kobo. They'll automatically appear in the app immediately afterwards.

The Kobo App makes reading even more comfortable and convenient:

• Customize the way you read. Enjoy crisp, clear text in the size and style you prefer. Try Night Mode to make reading easier on your eyes before bedtime, and lock the screen in portrait or landscape mode.

• Our beautifully designed, easy-to-use player makes it simple for you to move through your audiobook with a single touch. Never worry about losing your spot, and see how much time is left at a glance. Schedule it to turn off after a set amount of time—perfect for listening before going to sleep.

• Read thousands of free eBook previews or listen to audiobook samples to help you find your next favourite.

• Start reading on one device and pick up on another. The Kobo App always remembers where you left off, so you can keep reading across all your devices.

• Share your love of reading on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Post your favourite quotes, notes, and thoughts from what you’re reading.

• Rate and review the books you’ve read or read reviews from booklovers like you!

• Read in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Turkish, Traditional Chinese or Japanese.

• Listen to audiobooks while you drive with CarPlay. Download them before connecting to CarPlay, or else you won’t see them.

*You can listen to audiobooks on any iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS version 9.0 or higher.
