Frequently Asked Questions
How do I download videos or music?
Tap on the Browser button. Use our browser to browse to the appropriate website. When you visit a website on the Internet and see a video or music, you can just touch and hold on it for more than 1 second using our browser and if the video or audio is detected, you will be given the option to download it? Please make sure that you download only media that are copyright free or that you are legally allowed to download.
What can I download?
Obviously, you should only be downloading free legal music and video. These are some sites that have been listed as sources for free legal music for download. We CANNOT guarantee that all the music if any are legal or free to download. If you think this list is not accurate, let us know.

How do I download free audio Bible or podcasts?
There are numerous sites on the web that allows you to download podcasts and audio Bible for free. Search on Google for terms such as "free audio bible" for example
I touched and hold for more than 1 second on a video, but I cannot see the option to download it?
Sometimes, you need to touch and hold again since the iPad can be quite sensitive. For some videos, they need to be playing before we can detect it. So, tap on the play button and then try touching and hold again. Chances are if the video can play on your iPad, you will be able to download it.
In other cases, we do not support download from a website due to its terms and conditions which restrict any user from downloading their content.
Can I download Flash swf or flv content?
It depends on how the Flash content is embedded. Generally, websites have a way to not even show the player if they detect that Adobe Flash plugin is missing. However, in some cases where the Flash video or content is offered as a link, we can download it.
To play Flash content however, we recommend you to use Photon Flash Browser.
What file formats can you play?

How do I transfer files between the device and my computer
First, make sure you are plugged into iTunes. Then click on the Devices section on the left and then click on the Apps tab. In the file sharing section, look for our app icon and click on it. You will see the list of documents and folders on your iPad that is stored in our app. You can now transfer files easily to and from your computer.
Why is my download speed so slow?
There could be several reasons for it. One could be the speed of your network at that time. Your Internet connection seldom performs at the peak rate at which it is advertised for and the average rate may depends on the type of network (cable or dsl) and other factors.
Some websites also throttle download rate to prevent users from over saturating their bandwidth. If you are downloading a few files simultaneously, the average download speed will decrease per file.
If you are downloading over a cellular network, your download speed will be reduced dramatically for big files as your download will be throttled. We recommend that you always download over Wifi.
How do I backup my downloaded files through iCloud?
When files are downloaded, they are first downloaded and stored in the Download folder. The Download folder does not backup your files to iCloud.
If your installed iOS has iCloud support, you can move files from the Download Manager to other folders you create in your Documents folder.
I cannot open the file and play it.
Check that you have the right file extension for your video or media file. If you have the wrong extension, it may confuse our decoder though for the most part, it can still decode correctly.
Check that your file is not corrupted, have missing header information and you can typically test it by playing it on a good desktop player to verify that your file is indeed playable.
