Kobo's latest software update resolves longstanding problems
The latest Kobo software update – software version 4.20.14601 – has resolved some longstanding problems. Before the update, there was a long-term problem with smoothness and preciseness when highlighting text. The latest firmware has remedied the issue, and highlighting is significantly smoother - it is now comparable to Amazon’s Kindle software. There are further performance improvements that include more fluid typing using the virtual keyboard (before the update entering text was slow and resulted in lag). I’ve also noticed WiFi connectivity, and syncing has improved. For example, you no longer get the looped refresh after syncing Dropbox cloud storage.
