Cybook Update

The past few months our dev team has been hard at working on an update for your Cybooks with some new features we think you’ll be very happy about. What, for instance? Well…

  • Reading time indications (time left before the end of the chapter / the end of the book)
  • Notes export
  • Library: optimisation of the sort order depending on the active view
  • Library: sort by file name
  • New keyboard localisations
  • Multi-line keyboard for note taking
  • Menu: new icons
  • NB For the beta-test, the new features are labelled in English and French only. Of course, translations in all the languages available for the interface will be included  in the official release.

Like the last time, before making this upgrade publicly available, we’d like to have a short beta-test with a small group of experienced users.

So, Cybook Odyssey, Muse & Ocean users, if you would like to be the first to discover all the new features our dev team has been working so hard on, hurry and sign up!

Cybook Ocean: thin like…

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

The Cybook Ocean will be the thinnest reader in the world at a mere 7mm! That’s really thin. So thin, it’s hard to imagine without seeing it! So how can we demonstrate it visually? Photo of a reader next to a pencil, next to a coin… been there, done that. So we’re looking for some new ideas.

How would you show just how thin the Cybook Ocean is? The most creative idea could win a Cybook Odyssey 2013!

To get you started, here’s a photo of our very first Cybook, from over 12 years ago, next to the Cybook Ocean. We’ve come a long way, baby!

Happy reading and good luck to all,
