Formats, Software, Devices and Apps information for various audio devices

All devices: If you are not using a dedicated eBook reader like a Kindle or Sony eReader, note that other devices require a special program or application (app) to read eBooks through your computer browser, iPad, iPod, iPhone, and any mobile device.

Formats for iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone: Download the ePub format. You can use the free iBooks app program to read ePub on these devices; some devices come with this app already loaded, or you can download the free iBooks app from the iTunes store if you have iTunes on your computer.  Because of Apple's proprietary format, you cannot download our audio (or anyone else's audio) directly to your Apple device unless you purchase it from an Apple online store. As a result, you will need to download our audio first to your computer, then sync your Apple device with what is on your computer. You can also download to your computer and then drag the files to your device.

While we focus on using iBooks for your iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone portable devices, this is not the only eReader application available for these devices. You will need to decide which application best fits your needs. Search the Apple App Store to download any of these (usually) free applications.

Android tablets and phones:  There are many apps you can download that will read eBooks, you can search on "Android eReader apps."

Note:  You may want to check with your Wireless Provider to make sure you are able to download large files to your phone as some providers put a limit on data and charge for going over a certain amount of bytes.
