Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

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!

How can I participate?

Visit our online support and sign in to your Bookeen account.
Then “Submit a ticket” and request the Beta-test.
Don’t forget to fill in your name and the serial number of your Cybook!
You’ll find the serial number on the back of your Cybook, or in the “About” menu available from the home page.

Next, charge your Cybook’s battery! The test will be launched very soon with the update available starting tomorrow, so quick, grab your keyboard and sign up!

How can I submit my feedback?

Go back to our online support and sign in to your Bookeen account.
Then “Submit a ticket”, select the Beta-test, and then “Feedback”.

 

/!\ NB Due to hardware incompatibility, this update will unfortunately not be available for the first versions of the Cybook Odyssey, manufactured in 2011 and 2012. Thank you for your understanding.

Happy reading, and happy beta-testing!

Cybook Odyssey: Dictionary Feedback

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Following up on the dictionary beta tests, we would like to thank you very much for the rich feedback we received. We know you’re all very interested to know about future development, so we wanted to share some information with you about our plans.

Based on your feedback, we have already scheduled the following for future firmware updates.

Short term:

  • Select and prioritize preferred dictionaries (monolingual and bilingual)
  • Lookup within definitions
  • Lookup from virtual keyboard
  • History management

In parallel:

  • Finalized dictionaries
  • More dictionaries
  • Tool to build your own dictionaries

Thanks again to all our great beta testers for their very valuable feedback.

Happy reading,

Bookeen Team

Update 6 december 2012: For those of you looking for a specific dictionary, take a look at this free tool created by a clever Cybook user which allows you to convert any StarDict or XML format dictionary for your Cybook. Thank you, Pettarin! I thought I would put the links directly in the articles for easier reference.
