Loading Blio on the 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.
In 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.
In 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.
Next it is time to download the 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.) After you do this, you should see a number in the upper left of the
screen, indicating that the app has been queued for installation.

Go back to the top of the screen, and drag down on the time again. Click MORE again. Instead of going to the SETTINGS, now your Fire HD should go to a page that asks if you want to INSTALL Blio. One you do that, a page will display that honestly, may not look like it makes sense. At the bottom right of that page though, you should see INSTALL. Click INSTALL, and Blio should complete installing. After it finishes it may say Install Complete.
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. Launch Blio app. Log in
with your Blio ID. Blio will synch with your Book Shelf and bring in purchased titles and borrowed items from Axis 360.
