Version 2.0 of the Kobo OS was released today, making the e-reader much more streamlined.

Among the improvements are a streamlined home screen, personalised book recommendations based on what's in your Library, Font Tuning to make text sharper and the ability to change accounts on your e-reader — so if you share with a family member, you can access your very own profile.

In the Kobo store on your device, you can now also add books to a wish list and read free previews — and, in your Library, you can create customised shelves. This is great for avid readers who want to group their books by genre, for example.

We're big fans of anything that makes a fantastic user experience even better, so kudos to Kobo.

To get the update, make sure you have a Wi-Fi network available, tap the cloud icon on the upper right-hand corner and follow the prompts.
