For those that might want to read books on their computers, Kobo Desktop manages to provide a good solution. However, the developers are not only the creators of the desktop version for this application, as they also managed to bring it into the smartphone and gadgets market, too. This way, millions of people already have access to the features of the app and many more are joining the list of users that read books using the small but reliable tool, distributed for free.
Various ebook types are supported and the application will briefly scan each book that is loaded in order to provide the best formatting. However, users can choose to manually adjust any of these settings in order to customize their experience. The font, its color and its size are just a few of the elements that can be modified. However, there are also more interesting features, such as the night mode, which will decrease the background light of the device and provide a darker background which does not put stress on people’s eyes. From the app itself, people can access various titles that can be downloaded and read.
As soon as users add ebooks into the library, the app will scan the book and it will provide a cover for it. Users can also modify this option by providing their own picture for the book’s cover art. The program does not need a permanent internet connection and every book can be read offline, too. The book library will be easily synchronized between every device that a user has, and all he needs is a simple account linked with Kobo. Furthermore, users can also write reviews to the books that they have read through and other people can vote opinions as helpful or not when they want to download a book.
