Kobo Touch Update Adds Font & Layout Support

The new Kobo Touch has been out for only a few weeks and it got its first firmware update today.

Kobo Touch owners can now change not just the font size, but they can also change the line spacing, margins, and justification. The new firmware also comes with 5 additional fonts and users can load their own.

This update will go a long way towards pleasing picky readers, and it’s a significant improvement over the options offered by Kobo’s earlier apps and eReaders. Hopefully Kobo will expand these options to other apps like the Kobo Desktop.

You can download the update by connecting your Kobo Touch to a Wifi network or by  it to a PC that is running Kobo Desktop (get it here).
