Not all android devices are created equal. Because the settings range so widely, some devices have not been approved via the Play store for the Blio app. If you do not see results when searching for Blio in the Play store, the device may need to have the app side loaded.
Side loading application can be problematic due to default configurations on the device. For example, the Kindle Fire does not have the normal android accessibility controls and they also have different font tools. Use your Android QR Scanner to get these files.
