Kobo

After using Stanza app to read ebooks, I discovered the Kobo app for my iPhone. The interesting part about it is the user engagement while using the app to read books. It has gamification elements put into it. You earn badges as you read your books. There’s social interactivity where you can read notes written by other readers of a book. For instance, I’ve just finished reading Franz Kafka The Metamorphosis and the insights from other readers made it a pleasant experience getting through the subtleties and meanings underpin by the author. You have to click on the margins of the ebook if there’s any note available. Another thing that I really like about it is the statistics of your reading habits presented in such a neat way. Here’s a link showing what I meant http://theresaneil.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/gamification_kobo_vs_audible/
