kobo android app issue

Hi all, I think it best to post here as get satisfaction.com leaves a little to be desired. I noticed the other day with the kobo for android app on my tablet that of late there are around a dozen books that it always redownloads every time I open the app. They are the same titles each time.

Anyone come across funny behaviour like this before with the kobo apps?

I've had this on my android phone and my kobo touch. It has only happened a few times where it erases a book then redownloads it. No idea why.

There have been reports at getsatisfaction of the Android App behaving in odd ways sometimes, especially after an update. The problems can sometimes be solved by an uninstall followed by a reinstall.

Funny thing is I tried to uninstall and reinstall, and same thing, so I left is last night and decided that today I would uninstall it, remove all Kobo associated directories, and reinstall. But alas when I went to uninstall I wasn't given the option, only to force close the app. So I installed an uninstaller app and that didn't even show the Kobo app, yet it was there on my tablet and working.

So through the market I was able to update the Kobo app to the new one (damn ebook recommendations - they expect us to be bombarded by those but they don't listen to our firmware recommendations). Once updated I thought I would go through the whole uninstall process and start again, but I was only given an option to "uninstall updates" with a warning box saying the app will be reverted to the factory installed version. I have an Acer Iconia which didn't come with the Kobo app, so bugger me what has gone on.

Anyway, I think the Kobo app has decided to do as I say and just work, so far it (this is after several reboots) not deleted any of my ebooks and wanted to redownload them.
