Sync: The BorrowBox app now synchronises your reading/listening progress for each eBook/eAudiobook via the cloud – automatically without a touch. Simply put down one device, pick up another, and continue where you left off. A wifi connection is needed.

Easy Restore :  Forgot to renew your loan and reserved the title again for the future? Had to log out of the app or re-install the app on a new device? Your reading/listening progress will automatically be restored. If you have more than one Borrowbox account you can ask staff to merge accounts so your reading lists will be maintained.

Amazon App Store: The BorrowBox app is now available on the Amazon App Store and can be installed on Kindle Fire devices with just a few taps. Previously only available in the USA but now available in Australia.
