In order to listen to audio books on an iPad or iPhone, two things are necessary:
1. Access to the audio book
2. Download of the audio book onto the device
On: 1. Access to the audio book
If you have purchased the audio book without a data storage device, please download the audio book onto the computer on which you service your ipad or iPhone via "iTunes":
● After the purchase, register in your user account in the shop. Click the entry on the right "My Download Products".
● Download the audio book file(s) with a click on the coloured article entry on your computer.
The individual MP3 files are in the downloaded ZIP files. Please copy (or extract) them into their own file folder (directory) of your choice. If you have purchased the audio book on a CD or DVD, please put the latter into the appropriate disk drive of the relevant computer and the audio or MP3 files will be on display.
On: 2. Download of the audio book onto the device
You can play audio books on the iPad or iPhone via "iTunes". For this, connect the device to the computer, on which "iTunes" and the downloaded audio book are available. Next, add the MP3 files of the audio book to your media library in "iTunes". Then, to download the audio book into it, synchronise the "iTunes" library with the connected device.
