Reading The DFB Mini-Guides on Mobile Devices

One of the big advantages of a digital guide like this is the ability to use it on mobile devices. We encourage you to take advantage of this functionality. Here are the steps to take to do so:

Download the PDF File to Your Computer

Even if you don’t plan on reading it on your home computer, you’ll want to download a version there for safe-keeping. The download link you will receive is good for 5 downloads or 120 hours, whichever comes first, so you’ll want to make sure you have it somewhere safe where you can hold onto it. Save the PDF to your computer hard drive and name it something that you’ll remember so that you’ll be able to find it the next time you want to access it.

Syncing Your Guide

Because the Guide is a large file, it’s usually best to download it to your computer and then use your mobile device’s software to sync it, or copy it, onto your device:

For iPhone/iPad/iPod: Simply follow These Simple Instructions from Apple for copying it from your computer (using iBooks is quick and easy; the app is free).

For Android: First, have a PDF reader from the Android Market on your device — Adobe Reader is a good option. Then copy the guide from your computer to your mobile device via the USB connection. This link gives some instructions to copy the file to your device.

e-Book Readers (Kindle, Nook, etc): These devices have PDF support, but they do something called “Reflowing,” which means they will adapt the text to fit the screen. This may result in some strange looking results, but it is possible to put the book on an e-Reader.
