Instructions for Kindle Fire HD

To start the process, please make sure you are on the home screen.    The home button is the option in the lower left that looks like a house.  Go to the top of the screen, where you will see the time. Touch and drag this down, to open the SETTINGS menu.
Select the option that says More.
On the next screen, you should see a list of options.  Select the option for Device.  Please note that you may need to scroll the screen up to find it.
On the next screen, select ON for the option to Allow Installation of Applications for Unknown Sources.

NOTE: You may wish to set this option back to OFF when finished.
The next step is to download the Blio app.  Go back to the Fire HD’s home screen.   Click on the tab at the top right for Web. This opens the browser on your device.
Type in the following URL: http://bits.blioreader.com/update

When the page loads you will see several file options to click on.   Choose the link named KNFB Blio 3.0.3 PROD.apk. (If you see a link for 2.5.1, it is a previous version.)

It may take a few minutes to download the application.
While the application is still downloading, you can go back to the top of the screen and drag down on the time again to see the download status.
Once the download is complete, click on the KNFB Blio 3.0.3 PROD-2.apk download complete link.

A Blio eBooks page comes up and asks if you want to install this application.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click INSTALL.  Blio should complete installing.

After it finishes it may say Application Installed.  If so, click Done at the bottom of the screen.
Now press the home button on the Fire HD to go back to the home screen.    

You may see the icon for Blio in your carousel at the top.  However, it may not appear until you’ve actually used the app at least once.

If it does not appear, then go to your APPS screen, then view DEVICE (not CLOUD) and you should see Blio. Tapping this icon will start up the app.

When you launch the Blio app, LOGIN with your Blio ID and password.
Don’t have a Blio ID (or account) yet?

When you launch Blio, select Create Account and choose a username (a valid email) and password. (Please note that the password must be between 6-30 characters and must contain a capital letter, a lowercase letter, and a number.)

Now, Sign in to Blio.

Blio will sync with your Book Shelf and bring in borrowed items from the Axis 360 Magic Wall.

If it does not automatically sync, then go to MY PURCHASES at the bottom of the screen. You should then see your title(s). If they do not begin to download automatically, click on them to do so.
