After a bit of a wait, dawsonera ebooks can now be downloaded to Android and Apple (iOS) mobile devices, including tablets, Smart phones, iPads and iPhones. Users will be asked to choose from 1 or 2 day downloads. Downloading to Mac computers has also been enabled.
Each of our dawsonera ebooks are available as either PDFs or as EPUB files, this depends on the publishers. Instructions for downloading these two file types are different and detailed in the online help guides available from this User Guide webpage.
Click on either Downloading ebooks to an Android device or on Downloading ebooks to iOS for step-by-step instructions. You will need to have registered for an Adobe ID if you haven’t got one already, you can do this from here. You will also need to ensure you have the Bluefire Reader App downloaded onto your device (for reading EPUB files) and the Adobe Reader App (for downloading PDF files).
You can still download dawsonera ebooks to a PC, laptop or memory stick and also to a Mac (although if the default PDF reader is Preview the ebooks won’t open, try installing and using Adobe Reader instead).
Please let the ebooks@cambridge team know if you have any problems downloading dawsonera ebooks. We have had a go at downloading to an iPad2 and it worked for us but we understand there could be issues downloading to some Android mobile phones, we are monitoring this.
