How to Download Purchases

Before attempting to download resources, be sure to log into your app using the steps above. Once you're logged in, follow these steps to download your books:

  • Select the Store icon on the toolbar.

  • Select the 'Purchased' icon at the bottom of the screen.

  • Locate the resource you want to download.

  • Select 'Download'.

Using the Library 

Books downloaded to your Library are available for use offline. To switch between books, select the Library icon and choose the resource you want like to open. 


Audio books are handled differently; they are not automatically downloaded for use offline. Selecting 'Download' in the store only adds the resource to your Library so it is available to stream. This requires an internet connection.

You can choose to download audio books or sections of audio Bibles by opening the book and tapping the green icon in the upper right corner of the cover image. This will make the downloaded files available for offline listening.
