New and Improved Kobo Touch and Desktop Experience!

Posted by Kobo Labs July  10, 2012

First Kobo iOS, then the Kobo Android app, and now the Kobo Touch and Desktop apps have more amazing features.

 

The Kobo Touch
There are some major updates with this new version of Touch software. The first is thanks to your feedback! We’ve added a Wishlist function to help keep track of all the books you love – we know you’ll be thrilled with this new feature.

The second is that we’ve redesigned the home screen on your Kobo Touch moving the Recommended Reads section to the Discover tab to help you manage your eReading experience.

The new update also includes custom Bookshelves which put you in the driver’s seat on how you want to display your eBooks—by genre, interest, or author—it’s completely up to you!

Kobo Desktop
The Kobo Desktop experience helps you zero in on great new reads!

We’ve fine-tuned the profile quiz so that we can get to know your reading style a bit better. Take the quiz when you first sign in to help us suggest books that suit your reading tastes. Complimenting these Recommended Reads is the new Similar Books section that shows you books that are similar to the ones already in your library.

Tell us what you think in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter!
