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!

If you have poor cell signal it can really inhibit the app from downloading a book properly. It said that it was finished downloading but then it still had a problem loading the book and would hang there constantly. I had to get home onto WiFi to get it unstuck so it's not yet that optimised for mobile compared to many other apps like podcast, Spotify etc which don't seem to get stuck in the same fail loop when out and about.

No accessibility features present in the app. Furthermore, it is impossible to control the brightness while reading a book, app automatically makes screen ultra bright when reading. Horrible experience overall, probably the worst e-reading platform I have ever used

Hi Taylan, Our eReader supports user customisations such as font, magnification, colour and high-contrast settings but some titles, because they use a fixed format, will not utilise those features. We would love to talk to you some more about this and the brightness issue please contact us at glassboxxhelp@firstygroup.com.

I would've rather received the ebook I purchased in a different format - this app's less user-friendly than the Kindle one, or the apps I use to read .epub & .pdf books. The feature I'm most sorely missing is the ability to turn pages by tapping on the right-hand side of the screen, rather than having to slide from right to left to turn pages.

Hi Fern I've mentioned that you are missing the ability to turn pages by tapping the righthand side of the screen to our developers. Thank you for taking the time to send us your suggestions!
