Delighted

Perfect size for an ebook; like reading a real book. So glad I went with Kobo and not A Kindle.

Just right for bedtime reading

As I get older my eyesight isn't what it was and I wanted bigger text without having only a tiny number of words on a page. Having a good backlight makes life much easier and fading out the blue light as the evening goes on really does seem to help with sleep. I've used it in our hot tub a number of times now and it's totally waterproof - just rinse it in clean water afterwards because of the chemicals in the water. An iPad mini4 pouch fits it nicely.

Converted!

Bought as a present for step daughter who said she would only read 'proper' books but is now converted! have one myself and the only down side is the battery life is not as good as previous models of Kobo I have had. Otherwise, excellent. Love the fact that unlike Kindle one can buy from anywhere, not just Amazon.

do I need to use Adobe Digital editions with Aura One

i borrow books from my public library, can i use the Aura One without the setup with ADE. I already have the Aura HD and it was a nightmare to set up. Originally i had the Kobo Vox and again had to setup ADE, but once past all the process of setting up, i could borrow books straight from the tablet, will the Aura One do the same

How quickly can you move between pages with this device?

3 Answers

The screen is reasonably responsive when swiping, as quick as turning a physical page, I have noticed no jarring personally.

Helpful?

Same speed as you can turn a page on a book. There are no buttons it's all finger control, which you decide on setup.

Hello,

I have spoken to the suppliers regarding this item, and unfortunately they have not been able to advise how quickly the pages can be turned.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A

what sizes of text are available

2 Answers

Very wide range of font size, from small to very very large, and good choice of fonts, for epub books. You can also change the weight of the font, and the line spacing and margins. The text display is extremely customisable.

Hi,

The size of the text will depend on the file type. If the file type of PDF you'll only have three size options. However, if it's a EPUB, JPUB, EPUB3 EPUB2 fole, you can resize the font to a very high range of options.

I hope this helps.
