This version worked better, easy to ready but page turning clunky.

Forced to ugrade to 3.0! This version worse. Once you finally set letter size it goes back to tiny script every time you turn the page. Its slow and erattic

Summary

Sigh, moving on.

"Not impressed with free version"

January 06, 2012  |  By Nicholas53

 |  Version: Blio 2.2.7530

Pros

Nice interface and display book library ok

Cons

Can only download books when you register. The voice used for read aloud is unpleasant. Cannot highlight text.
Only a short introductory video that doesnt say much. No othe Help file.

Summary

Installed program. Needs to register to download books from free library. Tried to upload a PDF from my folder, cannot. Blio seems to want XPS format. Convert PDF ebook to XPS and uploaded. Could open book but no audio read aloud, no text highligting. Program slowed down considerably and it is NOT enjoyable.
Next: registered and I tried the "free books." Three titles appeared and I downloaded one. Tried to open and message appeared 'Computer must be individulized to acces protected content. Tried that and got an error 'MS and Play Ready error..'. I think there is beter programs than this one. I decided to uninstall.
