System Requirements

Last Updated: May 06, 2014 05:00PM EDT

Each device running Blio will have different requirements and options based on the Operating System (OS). If you are unsure about what type of OS you are running on, please click HERE.



Android version: 2.2 and up
Processor: ARM
Screen Size: Any screen size, except QVGA (320x240 or smaller) typically found on BlackBerry-like devices



We do support android devices, but not all android devices will support all of the Blio features. For example, the Kindle Fire is an android device, but it does not have some of the normal android settings which cause issues when trying to use the text to speech options and font formatting options. If the application does not show up in the Play Store, your device type has not been tested and is technically not supported, but you can “side load” the application.
