Anyone knows how to enable google play and 3rd party android apps on the Kobo aura editions 2 ?
Just got my mom one, and there is an android app i need to install which has her favourite books
Thanks!
Kindle offers better hardware for the money although has the Amazon restrictions. It's the typical printer ink, shaving kit selling model. I like Kobo but would not get this particular model or a 6" in general, just too small. The Kobo Aura One at 7.8" and 300 DPI is nice but has been 200 quid forever, the price needs to come down.

Open a case. If they don't respond ebay will intervene give you a return label and your money back. It is very important to ignore messages they send outside of the refund case and email. After you get your money back leave negative feedback.
Do not buy, they are sending the Kobo Aura Edition 2.

How would one get kindle book on here? Or is that not possible


Yes it's possible and not difficult, but you need a little tech knowledge and it's probably verboten to explain the exact method here.

On another and (naturally) completely unrelated note, Calibre is an excellent program for managing ebook collections in various formats, at least once you've got to grips with the admittedly unintuitive and messy interface.

I was given a Kobo h20 as s gift, the screen failed after 6 weeks. Approximately 1/3 of it was black. Contacted retailer and Kobo who both had no interest and informed me I'd broken the screen by dropping it. I was advised to buy a new one.
The device hadn't been dropped, it had sat on the bedside table. Worst reader I've owned, I bought a Kindle and have never looked back.
Search the Internet for 'Kobo screen issues' before you buy, I wish I had.

I find that Kobo's tend to retain their battery charge for a long time if not in use. Not sure about the modern Kindles as the last one I had was 3rd gen
Completely wonderful ereader. I replaced my Kindle with one of these and never looked back. The ability to read in the bath is superb

Fan of Kobo hardware, but their customer support is DIRE. Own three Kobo's in the house, but any future buys I'm switching to Amazon.
I have the first version and prefer it to my latest generation paperwhite. The screen is nicer, there is no frame as such (front is flat with no lip and the screen light is even, unlike the kindle. Pity you can't download kindle books directly to it without faffing around with calibre.
I have both Kobe and kindle,to me the different is kobo you can access the Canadian library all books for free and use Pocket,kindle you got the Amazon resource and kindle email push function,hope this can help someone x

I guess I'm not really comparing like with like when I mentioned the NookHD+ which is a tablet rather than an E-reader. If anybody else uses one of these for reading books the Libro app works well with my local library's ebook site.

The lack of support for a Kindle through the library scheme seems to be on a national basis from what I have read. I wouldn't recommend a kindle based on the extra costs involved in buying books for it. Let's hope Bezos has a change of heart some time soon.

FYI you are not restricted to your own library most of these will let you borrow from other libraries which are in their network using you existing membership. Some libraries will also let you join remotely. also can be used to read some magazines too.

That really is a thoughtless, if not ignorant, point of view. What you are in effect saying is that you think we all should be deciding whether to vote hot or cold on the bases of cost alone. You are overlooking the varied reasons why people vote here -- even on 'free' items. You may disapprove of what is being offered; think the item is inferior to a similar free item; know that the item is potentially dangerous; know that by asking for the free item you have to agree to receive spam; don't want to support a supplier whose products you think are unethical; the op has given the wrong information or link, etc. We make up our own minds about how we vote, you make up yours. And none of are obliged to say why we vote as we do -- that is also up to us, individually.
Already subscribed to the general email lists and would recommend for the occasional great find.
The website address is freebooksy.com but the op has linked the "deal" to the fantasy genre hence why they are only showing up

​That's a fair enough point. I think, ideally, if people remove DRM from library books, it shouldn't be to share more widely. And if you're not doing that, then you're risk free. All the same, I condone this practice when you've actually bought the book. As for libraries shutting down - I fear it becomes inevitable as soon as digital media becomes easy, and capitalism gets its hooks into the physical equivalents (which it has). If people really valued physical books but found them too expensive to buy and keep, I think we'd still have many libraries.
Thanks for the heads up! Been wanting to replace my broken old first generation Kindle for a while now. This looks great.

So these can borrow ebooks from a library, unlike Kindles?



​ I haven't looked into it before, so just did some research. Seems it's perfectly possible: kobo.com/hel…ary

As long as the library uses the OverDrive system, which it seems most in fact do.

So yes, you can

Alternatively, though, I would probably just strip the file of the DRM and then you can convert or transfer it anywhere/anyhow you want. And then, if you didn't want to feel like a pirate, you could delete it when you're done
