Kobo Touch Update Adds Reading Life

Kobo pushed out a new update for the Kobo Touch over the weekend, and today they finally told us what it was (mine hasn’t updated yet, so I didn’t know).

Kobo’s latest ebook reader now has better support for Reading Life, Kobo’s social reading platform. You can now share badges to Facebook while on your Kobo Touch. The new firmware also tweaks the dictionary and it lets you share snippets from the eBook you’re reading.

Okay, it’s a minor update, but it’s still a fun thing to do. I was expecting the update to be pushed out over the air, but apparently you will need to run kobo Desktop on your computer and then plug in your Kobo Touch.
