BOOX Releases Firmware V3.5.3: New UI, Dark Mode, and More Exciting Features

BOOX is rolling out a new firmware update for its ePaper devices. V3.5.3 introduces exciting features such as FreeMark, Dark Mode, and BOOXDrop Screen Mirroring, as well as upgrades to the existing ones.

The most refreshing change is the new UI. It’s noticed that icons, buttons, and borders of the interface have been redesigned to exude a minimalist style. Some functions, such as those in NeoReader, have been refined for greater clarity, enhancing the overall user experience.

For devices that support handwriting, the standout addition is FreeMark. This system-wide feature allows BOOX users to write in any place, such as on a website or within third-party apps. This feature is expected to be especially useful for professionals and students, allowing them to quickly mark down key information, for instance, jotting down quick notes on a web page or annotating important emails.

What’s more, this update also manifested BOOX’s commitment to education and workplace productivity.  BOOXDrop Screen Mirroring, a new screen-sharing tool, lets users project their BOOX screen to any device with a browser by simply entering a URL. In meetings and presentations, the tool streamlines idea sharing and serves as a whiteboard, boosting interactivity and effectiveness in teaching.

Another highlight of V3.5.3 is Dark Mode, a new display option for BOOX’s native reading app. When reading ebooks in reflowable formats like epub and mobi, users can switch to white text on a black background. This mode combined with a paper-like display offers a unique reading experience.

The Notes app has received several improvements. Now, users can crop inserted images to enhance note organization and visual appeal. The text contained in the images can be recognized by tapping the AI icon. This OCR capability is also integrated into the Smart Lasso. With that, users can select specific handwritten notes to convert to text, unlike before when the entire page had to be converted.

Additionally, there are some significant changes and upgrades that deserve mention. An AI Assistant is accessible in the Naviball and Control Center, ready to answer any questions popping up during reading and note-taking. The expanded Calendar Memo offers more room for to-do lists, appointments, and quick reminders, all easily viewable by date. All BOOX models support a three-finger swipe down for screenshots.

V3.5.3 is already available in BOOX’s new releases, Go 10.3 and Go Color 7 and BOOX reminds its users that the new firmware will be released in batches.
