Kobo will be one of the first retailers to offer an eBook app via the Windows Store for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.
The company’s app will allow customers to read books on a laptop or desktop running Windows 8.
In a blog post Kobo say the app offers “a new and improved interface” and was one of just a handful selected for release with the Consumer Preview of Windows 8.
Kobo say users “can instantly access your library and download your purchases directly to a home PC or tablet to read offline later, without an Internet connection. People can shop for eBooks through the integrated Kobo eBook Store and download content to their desktop to easily build and manage their library.”
The company offers apps for a wide range of devices and operating systems.
