New Top Navigation On Kobo.com

Hi all,

We just recently updated our top navigation on Kobo.com! We've simplified it to browse categories quicker, access top selling books and recently reduced titles, and even access free ebooks too.

We'd love your feedback on the design - what works well, what doesn't so we can further improve. We really appreciate your feedback

Cheers!

Brodie

It works ok for me. One thing I just noticed though: if you try to click any of the links in the Tablet menu they all take you to the Kobo Aura.

The mouse flyover pop up menus are *always* annoying. I know kobo is certainly not alone in using these, but click to open is much better.

It is extremly slow to come up on my ipad. It crashed just visiting the front page, and than crashed when I clicked on a link on the front page.

It's annoying, slow to load on iPad, harder to navigate. I wish you would spend more time on your site's terrible search function and less time on changes that IMO serve no useful purpose.
Examples:
Category for fiction and literature-sub lists lack granularity; I don't search for books under Drama, that's for Netflix.

Links from email alerts to sale books are almost impossible to filter search without my scrolling through a zillion bodice- rippers to find a book that interests me.

Honestly, I hate your site and use it only when I already know what I want to buy.

On a more positive note, am enjoying my new Glo hd.

Kind of have to agree. How many times has the site been redesigned now and yet the search, which people have complained about since day one, is still an issue.

Is the auto fill suggestions when typing in search new? Seems to be.. oddly responsive and functional.

It's done that for quite a while now.

The search is terrible, but the thing I most want fixed is clicking on an author link only showing books by that author. Same goes for the series.

I've had pretty good luck with the author part. Series, not so much.


I'd also like to see a much improved library page. No search. With over 1,000 in my account it'd be nice to be able to search for a title or author in my library. Only being able to sort by Date & Title makes finding a title clumsy at best (add search and sort by author). It'd be nice too if there was a way to update books that have updates like on Amazon. As it stands now you have to know ahead of time the book was updated and then try & get CS to push the fixed version to your account.

I like the new top navigation - I use a PC so it's good for me.

Glad you can search for the free ebooks again, that was a great feature of the old web site.

Changes fine by me.
