Been finding an issue with my Arc where Tapestries shuts down widgets because it cant seem to run them, the youtube widget and the facebook widget. Not a big issue, since I don't really use either but they were factory loaded, you would think the widgets would be fine. Other than that, I'm loving the Arc.

I've read that the Nexus 7 display isn't very well calibrated, and I'm curious whether or not the Arc has better colour saturation, brightness, etc.
My wife was torn between the Arc & Nexus and the Arc won out for the very reason you note. The Arc had the most vivid colours and otherwise the two are, as she would say, the same to operate.

The screen was the reason I chose the arc also. Compared with the nex 7 the screen just seems that bit better.

Kobo arc led

Hello to all

I'm wondering how to turn on the LED next to the camera. I think it's a LED.

So far it's a great tablet!!

That's not an LED. Next to the camera is the microphone and a brightness sensor. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I'll never be able to turn that sucker on LOL. I'm loving the tablet, got the 64 gb version for christmas and like others have said, haven't put it down.. Be nice when they come out with more cases for it...

If you don't like Tapestries, try the HOLO Lanucher. I've been using it and it works quite well..

GO Launcher EX is also good, though it really has too many options. Might want to avoid Apex - it's decent enough, but swiping to remove apps from the recents list doesn't seem to work right unless you're using a live wallpaper.

Hey, here is your solution :

And without cable ! I have tested it, it works really fine.
No need to return your device !

Better yet, grab Android File Transfer for Mac, the official Android device browser.

Yes, but you have to use an USB cable, which isn't supplied with the Kobo Arc...

A update was just downloaded on the Arc and I was wondering if this is the promised 4.1? (3:45 pm Atlantic)
