About this app

Welcome to Glassboxx: hassle-free eBook and audiobook access, all in one place.

Glassboxx cuts through all digital content ‘authentication’ issues, consolidating your eBook AND audiobook purchases made through affiliated stores, within an eminently user-friendly, secure environment.

No password required – simply log in with the email address used to buy the book and enter the verification code sent to your email – and your content awaits in the ‘My Books’ area of the app, with formats clearly labelled. With the content in the cloud, downloading requires an initial internet connection, but once downloaded, your books can be enjoyed to your heart’s content in the remotest, furthest-flung corners of the earth, where internet penetration is a mere pipe-dream…

THE AUDIO-PLAYER WILL:

• Auto-save your current position in the book – so that you can pick up right where you left off, even if listening on different devices
• Allow for skip forward/backward to recap where relevant
• Offer sleep timer option
• Play on lock-screen, enabling easy access to playback controls
• Play in background whilst browsing other apps
• Play immediately, and download in the background (provided internet access is available)

THE EREADER ALLOWS FOR:

• Page book-marking, opening the title at the right place when you pick up, even across multiple devices
• Font-size and font face changes, as well as dyslexic-friendly font
• Background colour changes
• Full text search

Welcome to the Glassboxx (not Glassbox) community!

Leaving aside that I expected a downloadable PDF from my purchased paperback+ebook bundle, which is on the seller, I'm not impressed by this app itself. It's a very basic e-reader, but there don't seem to be any in-app settings I could see, and it forces the screen brightness up with no way to disable that. I also don't need an app that can check my location etc just to read a PDF. No thanks.

Hi Benjamin, thanks for the feedback. Happy to switch the title to an EPUB version, if we have this format available, as this has in-app settings. Contact us at help@glassboxx.com and we can look in to this for you. The screen brightness is driven by the device settings. I've referred this to our tech team to follow up for you.

This updated App doesn't fully download my audio book, just the books short introduction track, then a download error message appears, so i can only give it one star, thankfully i can play the full audiobook from the Glassboxx website instead. Customer Service suggested it might be due to a slow/ poor unstable internet connection. I have a superfast stable home broadband connection.

Not really one for low-scoring reviews but feeling more than a bit conned. I bought a hardcopy language book, only to find that the promised audio file download was actually just an audiobook DRM-locked to this basic app. Very basic functionality, there are literally dozens of better options on here for a better ebook/audiobook experience.
