Duokan is not our product, and the developers of Duokan do not appear to still be active. Just use KOReader. There are a couple different programs that are KOReader derivatives, or predecessors, but KOReader should do just fine.

You can use pocket to send articles to your Send-to-Kindle email address, I guess.

It's the same codebase, so except for variations in the device integration it should be identical.

However, I have never owned a Kobo and I don't use KOReader on my Kindle (because I just convert to AZW3 and use the firmware reader software). So my knowledge is merely peripheral and I could theoretically be wrong.

EDIT: Ninjaed by an actual KOReader dev.

you mean you convert your books into AZW3 or what ?
and what kind of books do you read on your kindle ? have you ever tested scientific papers which incude formulas , and sometimes diagrams and charts and tables ?

Precisely. I don't use anything with formulas or charts, certainly not scientific papers.
Which mostly boils down to, I don't read PDFs on my Kindle.

The Kindle has a very inferior PDF reader, so if I wanted to read PDFs I would definitely try out KOReader... but as it is, I mostly read for enjoyment, which means stuff that works equally well as EPUB or AZW3.


Hence my lack of anything more than peripheral knowledge. I will leave you in NiLuJe's capable hands now.

I have not found much difference between the devices themselves although it depends on what you want to do.
So I will ask a very simple question.
What do you want to on your ereader?
What types of books? Do you plan to buy straight from the store or do you plan to sideload?
How picky are you about fonts?

OK so technically that is 4 questions.

More or less. I mean, Kobo does have a slight reputation for flaky firmware, and inferior dictionaries, and an apparently inaccurate touchscreen depending on whether you use KEPUB or EPUB which makes highlighting and annotations a royal pain (so undoubtedly a software bug)...

As for screen size, it doesn't mean anything to me. It's a somewhat personal decision though, so it might mean something to you.

...

We have a Which One Should I Buy forum here on MobileRead, if you are interested in general comparisons rather than questions about Kindle thirdparty software support.
You are more likely to find people there who have used both devices and can compare the experience. This being the Kindle Developer's Corner, most of us only have experience with Kindles specifically.

@Michael.A.H: Both are equally terrible if you really do need to read complex PDFs. KOReader makes that noticeably less painful, but I still wouldn't really recommend an eInk device for that.

Kobo's software is not that great, but a bit more customizable.
A Kindle is hands-down much more noob-friendly.

My biggest gripe with Kobo would still be their apparent lack of interest in driving Carta eInk screens to the fullest extent of their capabilities (don't jump from a PW2+ to a Kobo, that'll make you sad, in terms of ghosting & refresh speed).
As mentioned, there are large rendering and performance differences, as well as a number of varying quirks depending on whether you read ePubs or kePubs (you could compare that to the mess that's starting to develop on Kindles with Mobi/KF8/KFX).
If you've never extensively used a (recent-ish) Kindle before, the Kobos are perfectly fine.

I have to admit that I do miss those .8" when I see a PW, though, but it's not that big of a deal if you've never extensively used a 6.8" device .

If you care about that sort of thing, a Kindle (especially the latest generations) will be scarily less bulky, lighter and thinner, but that doesn't actually deter you from finding a Kobo perfectly usable.

FWIW, the device that I've been carrying around with me everywhere is the H2O, the PW2 stays at home, and hasn't seen much actual "use" (as an eReader that is. As a fun thing plugged in to my computer to poke around in, that's another kettle of fish ;D).
