Blackstone Library HelpeBooks - Axis 360
There are two readers for Axis 360 ebooks: Axis Reader and Blio.
Axis Reader - a distinct advantage of this reader app is that you can locate and check out your Axis 360 books directly from the app. It can read both ePub and PDF format books, including those not from the Magic Wall, and allows you to adjust font size, highlight text and take notes, bookmark, and search within a book.
Axis Reader is available for Nook HD tablets, iOS and Android mobile devices. (You will also need an Adobe account to use the Axis Reader.)
Blio - displays the book's page image in full color, offers multiple reading views, can sync up to five devices, can highlight the text and add notes, and can read audio-books and rights-enabled books.
Blio is available for iPhones, iTouch, iPads, Android phones & tablets (including Nook HD tablet), Kindle Fire and Windows phones, tablets, and computers.
Please note that Axis 360 ebooks can be downloaded to the Kindle Fire, but not the Kindle ereader.
Axis Reader and Blio instructions can be found here.
