BOOX V3.0 Firmware Feature Introduction Part 4
Pushing ebooks, files and web articles to read them later on BOOX is a great way to get rid of the LCD screens’ blue light and get evolved in a comfortable reading experience.
For web articles, they will be converted into epub files. You can open them in NeoReader, and take notes on them like you’re annotating an ebook.
However, this method can’t convert protected data of the original web page. Some texts and graphics will disappear from the converted web articles, resulting in a strange format or even a blank document.
Since the latest firmware, we’ve developed a new built-in app named PushRead to help users read pushed web articles on BOOX better.
PushRead can save the majority of the pushed content. This is its most significant advantage when compared to the conventional conversion method.
Unlike the converted articles in the epub format, PushRead actually remains the original format of a web article to save as much information. It offers you a similar user interface and reading mode of a web browser. You can scroll up and down to read content without loading.
PushRead is even better than a regular web browser. Like our new NeoBrowser, it offers you several options to optimize the article reads on an E Ink device.
You can adjust the font size by a tap, search for words, and change the refresh mode from normal mode, speed mode to A2 mode.
You can also read with the built-in Reading Mode, which gives you pure texts without the interruption from ads and pics.
Long-pressing a word, you can copy, share, translate and look it up in the built-in/custom dictionaries and third-party dictionary pop-ups.
The only thing that worths notice is that it doesn’t support annotations and hand-written notes currently. If you want to take notes on the pushed articles, you need to go with the converted-to-epub articles and achieve that purpose with NeoReader.
Pushing web posts to PushRead shares the same website of sending files to your BOOX: push.boox.com. But the typed-in box is different.
For pushing articles to PushRead, you need to tap “Push” and “Webpage”, then type the URL in the box and click “add”.
While for pushing files, like ebooks and documents, to your BOOX device, the access remains “Push>File.” In the box under “File,” you can either send in a URL to convert the web article into an epub file so you can take notes on it, or push an ebook or a picture to your NeoReader.
Besides pushing files and webpages, you also push screensavers in the “Screensaver” tab. As the name suggests, it enables you to push screensaver pictures to your BOOX directly without the cable connection.
Enjoy reading with the PushRead app:)
