Just out of interest, does the Kindle do reflow when displaying PDF's? I would imagine that the Kindle is Kobo's biggest competitor, so they would want to match their abilities.

Kindle is out of my sight; it doesn't support epub, and all my books are in epub format.

I don't imagine Amazon would want to help Adobe out - as they use their own competing format. I suspect PDF support might be minimal.

personally I'd love it if the project were to be revived, so that it may even get resized for the Mini

Just go ahead and sell it - you should get not that far below what you paid for it - and get the device that suits your needs. Or return it, if you're still in the "buyer's remorse" period.

Happy reading.

Ohh well thank you for the advice.

This is a nice thing to try. Hoping that the project will continue.

I have just downloaded the version for Touch and Mini. On the Touch, it works quite nice.

Brilliant. Don't know why Kobo haven't done it, but I'm so glad we have people like giorgio130 with the ability to port and program good software.

It isn't contrary to the purpose of pdfs to ask Kobo to implement easy page turns within zoomed text. If Kobo e-readers still had page turn buttons, the issue would be solved by now -- esp. on the Aura, which would work especially well with pdfs were it not for the difficulty of turning zoomed pages.
