Blio eBooks


Don’t just read books. Experience them.

Blio doesn't just put pages on a screen, it offers new possibilities.
In Blio
a textbook becomes a classroom…
a cookbook becomes a kitchen…
and a fairytale, a place where dreams really do come true.
Because Blio is so much more than words.
We are an experience.

Bringing books to life is about more than just recreating the words on the page. That’s why we developed Blio.

Blio is smart enough to know that books are more than just words: there’s style, presentation, and a world of color. And smart enough to know all of that enhances your reading experience. That’s what you love about books. So books in Blio have the same layout, fonts, and full-color images that you enjoy in the print version of your favorite titles. Finally there’s an eBook reader that brings not only novels to life, but cookbooks, travel guides, how-to manuals, textbooks, and children’s books to life in vibrant color.

But eBooks should do more: they should leverage everything that the device you’re reading on is capable of. Blio does just that, with many books having read aloud by a text-to-speech voice (purchase required) or by an audiobook track, with words highlighted as they are spoken. You can look up words you might not be familiar with or get more information on a topic by searching Google, Wikipedia, and more without ever leaving your book. And Blio has a virtual library that you can view from anywhere, so you can access and read your books on any of your devices.

Try a whole new eBook experience with Blio, where books are more than words.

Disaster on Lollipop When Blio worked, it was an OK reader. Not great--for example, you can't sync page location between devices--but perfectly OK. But with Lollipop upgrade, I just can't read books anymore. Others have the same problem and apparently it's been known for months: when you turn a page, you'll be on the same page or two pages ahead or a blank page and nothing works to clear it. Which is unfortunate and disappointing when I've waited weeks for a library book.

Not a great book app Two major problems. One, app doesn't sync between devices. Two, pages are frequently out of order. You have to flip ahead a few pages, then go back to get them in order.

Pages never in order More than half the time i tried to read books on this app, the pages were out of whack... chapter title page moved or blanks and have to go forward then backwards to get it to show. Way too frustrating! I'll use the other app my library supports.
