Meet Blio

Blio is smart. Smart enough to know that books are more than just words; there’s style, presentation, and a world of color. Blio is also intelligent 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.

But eBooks are intended to be different…that’s why they put that little “e” in front of “book”. eBooks should do more - they should leverage everything that the machine you’re reading on is capable of. Blio does just that. Now your books can read aloud to you, with Blio highlighting each word as it goes, so you can follow along. You can look up words you might not be familiar with or get more information on a topic by searching Google, Bing, and more without ever leaving your book.

Then there are those people who like to write in the margins…you know who you are. Well, Blio’s got you covered there too. You can highlight, take notes, add pictures, and even web links to the notes section of each book.

Blio wants to make reading enjoyable and easy, no matter where you are, and no matter what device you’re reading on. To that end, Blio offers ReadLogic, a feature that knows to automatically zoom and navigate to the next logical place in the book for you to read, whether it’s the next paragraph, a caption, or a sidebar. Blio also offers the Blio BookVault, a virtual library that you can access from anywhere. The Blio BookVault lets you start a book on one device, and continue it from another, while saving your reading progress.

So with all that Blio does for you, think about all that you can do with Blio. Finally, there’s an eReader that brings cookbooks, travel guides, how-to manuals, textbooks, and children’s books, vividly to life. Up until now, these types of content have been nothing more than pictureless, black and white pages on other eReaders. With Blio it comes to full-color life right before your eyes.

So turn the page to a whole new world of content, with Blio.
