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…


• 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)

Great app - easy to use for audiobooks and ebooks

It’s got some nice features, and my books just appeared automatically - thank you

Unreliable and poorly-featured

Like most reviewers on here, I’m only using this because books I particularly wanted could only be bought in this format. The concept is fine, but the app is dreadful. It is a matter of chance whether it will open properly or simply leave you looking at a whirling timer. Your books may or may not then appear. You cannot read in landscape on an iPad (honestly!). The recent rebrand addressed no significant issues, but instead changed the colour of the Home Screen icon - woohoo. It may also have made it slightly less stable. I would expect to be seeing frequent updates to this app to bring it up to a reasonable quality and to address the stability issues. One plus point: it’s marginally less awful than the atrocious Adobe Digital Editions. But anyone who’s used that will know that this is damning with very faint praise.

Thank you for the feedback, Ben - it is much appreciated. We haven't yet got the ebook reader in landscape for you but hopefully the new version of the app has resolved the opening and whirling timer issue you described. Our Support Team are always available at to help with app issues.

So good and easy to use

I am blown away by how easy this app is to use and it is really changing the way I read books. It has encouraged me to read more and I recommend to anyone who loves reading or wants to really get into reading. It’s also really got me into audio books.😍😍😍

Really pleased you are enjoying the audiobooks and the app, Claire!
