Re: KOBO Book Reader
I use that on my PlayBook occasionally. It'd be great to have it on BB10, with fixes included.Josh - Curve 9320 & PlayBook 64GB - BlackBerry Enthusiast - CrackBerry Addict - PlayBook Sideloader

I have an Android version that I side loaded on my Playbook. Worked better than the native Playbook app. Side loaded it onto my Z10 and it is downloading my books. So far so good.7100t -> 7230 -> 7290 -> 8700r -> 8310 -> 8900 -> 8520 -> 9800 -> 9810 -> 9900 -> Z10 -> Nexus 4 (sigh)

Just spoke with Kobo support, they are currently not developing an app for BB10, and have no specific time scale for if & when it will arrive.
Then again, the person in support had no idea what a Z10 was, so who knows...

Let me know if anyone needs or wants the Android bars that I have that work on mt Z10 for the Kindle or Kobo. Both work great for reading and syncing bookmarks.7100t -> 7230 -> 7290 -> 8700r -> 8310 -> 8900 -> 8520 -> 9800 -> 9810 -> 9900 -> Z10 -> Nexus 4 (sigh)

See my post above...the Kobo Reader HTML5 browser version works really well. Even downloads your books for off-line reading. Then use the cool "add to home screen" option on the BB10 browser and you have a nice app icon to launch from on your device.

A lot of companies have adopted a "wait & see" attitude it seems, not only for Apps but also for acessories. Hopefully the Z10 will do well when it lauch in the USA, that might tip the scale for a lot of companies...

Zinio is conspicuous in its absence. I actually really like Newsstand, and the display is so much better on the Z10 that it makes for easier reading, but I still have Zinio subscriptions so I'd like to know what's happening there, too.
Any music you've bought through 7digital is available as an unencrypted MP3. You can go to their website (7digital United Kingdom | High quality DRM-free MP3 music downloads), log in with the same account you would have used on your device, and all your purchases are available for download from there. I'll admit, this surprises me a bit, since they're still the music provider for the new BB World; I would have expected 7digital purchase history to appear automatically. All things considered, though, this seems pretty minor.“Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”

It is surprising that Kobo do't have a BB10 app already, considering the Playbook had the Kobo app from day one. Suppose I will try the Android app. Zinio on the other hand almost had to be dragged kicking and screaming onto the Playbook, so I have no idea what the story is for BB10. They do support the iPhone and Android, yet don't list the Playbook on their site.

Something weird must have happened between RIM/BB and Zinio. Zinio barely supported the PlayBook (the app was frankly pretty bad...it even had the word "Android" scattered through the Help guide). Hopefully they'll develop an app for BB10, but I don't think it'll be arriving any time soon...

@kobohelp - The Kobo App for BB devices remains part of the BB ecosystem. We are working to align with BB new gen of devices incl BB10
