    You just added 30-50 years to my life

    This book just saved me from a big mistake! I was scheduled for angioplasty and a stent. If that failed I would need a coronary artery bypass. After reading only part of the book I changed my diet to a high nutrient low carb diet. I lost 3 pounds. My glucose went from 247 to 123.9 . And l’m taking about 8 units of lantice less/day. This is in the first three weeks of the diet. I’m walking 2-5 miles/day and I’m feeling GREAT. No pain, shortness of breath, or Angina. I guess the only person that is going to die is my cardiologist from embarrassment. I’m 70 years old and my cardiologist is younger. I personally plan to urinate on his gravestone on the tenth anniversary of his death!! I truly hope he lives a very long time!!!! THANK YOU for saving my life!!!! The book was worth thousands of times more than I paid for it. Sincerely Jerry O.

    Great customer support

    I had an issue for signing in and I read other reviews saying something similar. I decided to contact the support via chat window. Unlike many of the customer support of other apps or online stores, a guy named Arturo knew what he was talking about. I described my issue and he immediately pointed out what I’d have to do. It had something to do with the unclarity of sign-in options on the screen. The App designer definitely needs to make it more visible. You need to sign in by specifying what you originally signed up with. There is a small text below sign in boxes saying “more sign in options”. If you click on that there was a long list of different options. After going through that, there was no problem. Thanks again, Arturo!

    Kobo is my favorite reader for use on the iPad

    I like how the Kobo app works, especially the way folders can be used to sort books. Now the app on the iMac allows better search options. It is also easy to go back and forth to keep Plaintext notes on my iPad. I also like how it is set up to easily give a review of the book when I finish. Improvements? It would be nice to have an archive folder for books I have read and probably won't revisit. It would be such that the all folder still shows all, but if I want to edit my books-read folder, it would let me go to the all listing minus the archive ones. As it is now, as my library gets bigger, it gets clumsier to use.

    Works awesome!

    So I have to admit that I was a little scared off by the low rating (three-star rating is pretty harsh) but figured hell, it’s free - why not give it a shot. Well, it works awesome! Logged in quickly and easily, all of my Kobo books were there - good to go! The instructions on how to flip pages in it was a little overboard bc every other reader out there works exactly the same way, so...duh? But I’m also a Millennial who grew up with this stuff, so I’m not going to be thrown off by simple technology, whereas maybe someone else would be. *shrug* Anyway, loved it - glad I downloaded it and gave it a shot! Kobo is an awesome store that treats its authors right, so I’m happy to support them however I can.

    Love the books but app is so so.

    Audiobooks in particular can be problematic. I belong to the audio club but find myself frequently frustrated with the app which hasn’t a way to flag & doesn’t do a decent job of tracking where I am. The controls are sensitive & suddenly shift back or forward when I move because something has brushed the screen. I listen to audio so I can do things while reading so this is very irritating. The text capabilities are better with flags & search capabilities but I have trouble making the annotation capability work & usually give up in frustration. Bottom line, I love Kobo; belong to VIP & audio clubs; but app itself could be improved.
