It's been 12 days and still no response from Kobo. Not even a simple acknowledgment of customer concerns/frustration. The basics of customer service. The posts within the thread are respectful in tone. Folks want to know what the deal is with the Android app and why there's only a phone version in the Android Market. Why the inconsistencies with what's presented on the Kobo website and what's available to general tablet owners?

Another point of interest.

There's a video of the Android app for tablets in the Google Market. So, it's something that is not just available to folks who had it pre-installed on their tablet when it was purchased. People look at the video and assume that's the app they're getting. It's not. This is baffling.

If it's installed in /system/app it will only work for those with root. The file would need to be placed in there and then installed. Still no root for the Sony tablet. Others will benefit though.

Actually I do not want to root my Xoom.
I am looking for an official solution.
If I buy/order/download something I do expect that it is as it was described before.
In this case the Kobo App is not even close to the preview in the android market or on the Kobo webpage.

I hope that Kobo sooner or later replies to our request and delivers what they have announced.....

I'm with you on that. I want the official app as well. We're being ignored. I just know that some have rooted tablets and will benefit from the .apk from an Acer or Samsung. I was just making an assumption, it may not have been installed to /system/app.

Weird thing is that I couldn't find the Kobo app, must have been frozen when I did a restore. But still I just downloaded from the vache-android site (used to cook some apps inside your rom).

Just install it no need to root or move it to the system/app. So it should work on your Sony.

I will post a link since I cannot attach a apk here. Hope it doesn't break any rules, but since the Kobo app is already free, I don't see any problem.

Thanks for taking the time to do this. It installs with no problems. There's no Reading Life functionality, but it's a heck of a lot better than what's in the Market.

Also only 2 fonts. But maybe people with a Vox could rip out the files of the newest one

Exactly. We're getting there. It's unfortunate we have to resort to these tactics.

I agree. We can continue to voice our disappointment in the misrepresentation on the Kobo website and in the Android Market. Those who feel the same way need to "speak up".

Well, once again the iPad/iPhone app has been updated.

We can't even get a simple tablet app in the Market. Why can't we get the app that's on the Vox or the Acer and Samsung tablets? This is bullsh*t.
