iPhone/iPad (OT 7.1)- Library

The Library is where all of your resources are located. You can access the Library by tapping on the Library icon on the toolbar.

There are several tabs in the Library that give you alternative ways to access your resources. Here are descriptions of each tab:

View All

This category shows all of the resources currently in your Library. This includes both downloaded and un-downloaded resources. 

Grayed out resources have yet to be downloaded to your device. Tap the white arrow in the green circle to begin the download of the resource. You'll know the resource has been downloaded when the cover image is visible. Tap on a downloaded resource to open it in the main window.

Recents

This list shows the resources you have recently opened. This can be helpful if you need to switch back and forth between the same few resources. With a large library, Recents can also make it easier to find recently-used resources.

Recommended

This section displays resources from our Store that we recommend based on your current library.

If you are not interested in buying new resources, this tab can be hidden by following these steps:

  • Tap the Settings icon on the toolbar.
  • Select 'Advanced Settings'.
  • Select 'Library'.
  • Turn off the 'Show Recommendations' switch.

Favorites

In the Favorites tab, you can set resources as favorites and sort them into your preferred order to make them easier to find. This option is especially helpful for users with a large library, though users with smaller libraries can also take advantage of this tab.

To add a resource to your favorites, it must be downloaded. Once it is downloaded, follow these steps:

  • Tap the Library icon.
  • Locate the resource in the 'View All' or 'Recents' tab.
  • Tap the three-dot icon to the right of the resource.
  • Tap 'Make Resource A Favorite'.

To remove a resource from your favorites, follow these steps:

  • Tap the Library icon.
  • Locate the resource in the 'View All' or 'Recents' tab.
  • Tap the three-dot icon to the right of the resource.
  • Tap 'Remove From Favorites'.

Categories

In the Categories tab, you can see the resources in your Library sorted into categories. While this is helpful for users with larger libraries, this also allows you to view only the resources in a certain category, e.g. Devotionals, or see all resources from a certain publisher or author.

Remove a Resource

If you would like to clean up your Library, removing and archiving a resource is easy. To remove a resource from your Library, follow these steps:

  • Tap the Library icon.
  • Tap the three-dot icon to the right of the resource.
  • Select 'Remove and Archive' (if the resource is downloaded) or 'Hide and Archive' (if the resource is not downloaded).

Archived resources will not show in your Library, but they will still be available for download in the Purchased tab in the Store.
