Question Kobo for iPad: options like 'highlight' & 'note' are obscured by iOS 'cut' & 'define'

Hello

I recently started using Kobo for iPad in earnest. Not a bad app in many ways - easy on the eye and includes options not available on the eReader Touch, such as sharing to Twitter. However, there is one bizarre quirk which I have been unable to figure out and would welcome advise on: touch a specific word on a page and a contextual menu offering such options as highlighting, taking a note, or sharing to social media, etc - or at least it would, if this contextual menu was not invariably half-obscured by the built-in iOS contextual menu which invariably appears directly over it, offering you access to the built-in iOS dictionary, cut, paste, etc. How on earth do you prevent this from happening?

It's an unfortunate bug related to iOS 5 – don't worry, it's been fixed in the next app update.

Cheers,
Charles

That's good news. Should we expect the next app update soon-ish?

I hope so, but I can't really say as it's kind of out of our hands at this point.

Do you mean it's been submitted for approval by Apple?

The new app looks great... except page and highlight syncing with the Touch are still broken! AAARGH!

Hmm, bookmark syncing should be totally fixed now, but currently annotation syncing is only between iOS apps and the Vox, though it is coming to the Touch soon.
