Kobo Launching Free iPad App

Kobo Jumps on the iPad Before Its US Release

The Kobo ereader won't even be available until June here in the US, but it's following closely in Barnes & Noble's footsteps by releasing an iPad app for worldwide customers. The free app is available for download in the iTunes App Store and comes with a really sleek interface. If it looks familiar, that's because it resembles the Apple iBookstore shelving layout but takes things a step further by allowing you to customize the look — adding different background wallpapers to mix things up — and create custom bookmarks. Similar to the Barnes & Noble iPad app, the Kobo app gives users access to the ebooks they've downloaded on their Kobo devices (it's available in more than 200 countries already), comes preloaded with five free classic titles, and enables you to browse the millions of books available in the Kobo ebook store.

I'm still pretty excited about the affordable Kobo making its way to the US. Having an additional iPad app is great for those lucky bookworms who already have a Kobo but may have upgraded to Apple's new tablet. Way to stay ahead of the game, Borders!
