Kobo has sent out another update, version 1.9.17 for the Kobo Touch eReader
This version includes:
- improved recognition of page-turn taps
- Home screen correctly remembers your carousel choice
- Improved sync performance
- Fixed render of menu items when a word is highlighted
- Fixed trouble connecting with wifi
- Option to share your reading activity to Facebook Timeline
- Other stability and performance improvements
I’m interested in the improved recognition of page-turn taps. I’ve recently noticed my Kobo Touch has been a bit more finicky about page turns. I might also need to clean the sides of the screen where the IR sensors are.
The Facebook timeline is an interesting feature, though I won’t be linking my Timeline to my Kobo. I’ve seen similar facebook posts from people who have Telus TV and I really don’t need to share what TV shows or books I’m reading at the moment.
