QuarkXPress 9 has powerful features to help you create electronic publications in several formats, including iPad apps, Blio books, and EPUB books. (See my previous story here.)
To read a Blio book you need the free Blio reader, which is now available for iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) at Apple’s iTunes store. Download it here.
The free Blio reader is also available for Android devices, Windows Phone 7, and and for Windows computers. See the Blio website for details.
(The book world is still eagerly waiting for a Mac version of the reader… are you listening, Blio people? Please remember: many students use Macs and would love to copy data from Blio books into reports!)
