iPhone/iPad - Downloading Books

In order to download your resources, download the app and log in to your account within the app. Once you have logged in, you will have access to your Library of books.

Downloading from the Library

We recommend downloading your books from the Library.

Tap the Library icon and ensure you are on the 'Cloud' tab of the Library.

Once a resource has been downloaded, the cover image will be solid and you can tap on the resource to open it in the main window. 

Please note that most Study Bibles are downloaded as a standard Bible text and Study Bible Notes. For more information on using Study Bibles, please see this article.

Automatic Downloads

We offer an automatic download feature that is useful if you have a large library and do not wish to tap on each book to download it. 

From within the Library, tap the options icon in the upper right corner and select 'Library Settings'.

Toggle 'Automatically Download Books' on.

Your Library of books will now download automatically with the exception of audio book and Bibles.

Audio books are not automatically downloaded since the files are usually large. By default, audio is streamed, which requires an internet connection.

You can choose to download audio books or sections of audio Bibles by opening the book and selecting 'Manage Download' in the audio options. This will make the downloaded files available for offline listening. There is more detailed information about downloading audio in this help article.
