3. How do I listen to the audio files on my iPhone if I don't have a computer?If you don't have a computer available to download the zip file and sync to your iPhone through iTunes, the best method we have found to do it all on your phone is as follows:
- Go into the App Store on your phone
- Install a free App called "Documents by Readdle": https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/documents-by-readdle/id364901807?mt=8
- Copy the download link sent in your download email after your purchase.
- Open the Documents by Readdle app. It may ask you to create an account, but that's not required.
- Click the button in the bottom right of the screen to open the Documents browser
- Paste the download link into the url text field in the top of the screen
- After the file loads in the browser, click the 'Save' button in the top right of the screen
It may take a few minutes because this is a large file, but then the file will be saved on your iPhone.
- Click the files button on the bottom left of your Downloads screen
- Tap the 'Downloads' folder and find your download
- Tap the file and it will 'unzip' into a folder
- Tap that folder and you will find all of the Babywise book audio files in order from 1 to 19, plus the PDF file with the illustrations from the book.
4. How do I install an ePub file on my Nook?
There are several Nook versions, which may have different installation instructions. We've found this to be the simplest method:
- Click the link in your download email, and save the zip file to your computer
- Unzip the file
- Connect the Nook to your computer via a USB cable and navigate to the Nook USB drive; “My Computer” on Windows or the “Desktop” on Mac OS X.
- Drag-and-drop the ePub book from your computer to the “my documents” folder of the Nook.
- Once the file has finished transferring, eject the device from your computer and unplug the Nook USB cable; right-click on the Nook drive and select the Eject option.
