Using eTextbook Offline (no WiFi) with iOS app


To view your eTextbook offline using an iPhone, iTouch or iPad, make sure you have downloaded CouresSmart’s iOS app from the App Store. You can not use your book offline when viewing your eTextbook via the Safari browser. To use the iOS app offline, DO NOT LOG OUT of the app. You can quit and restart the app at any time, but you can only log back in while you are online. 


You may read your eTextbook offline on one iOS device at a time. If you decide you want to read your eTextbook on a different iOS device, then click the "checkin" button to checkin the book. Now this book is available to check out on a different device.

NOTE - Screen shots were taking using an iPad.

IMPORTANT: Chapters can be downloaded only once. If the download does not complete, you should attempt to cache the chapter again as soon as possible to avoid being locked out of caching your chapter locally on your iOS device. If you delete the CourseSmart app and reinstall, you will have to contact CourseSmart Customer Support to reset your download so you can download again.
