Mobile eReader App Download Help

You need to have an eReader App on your phone or tablet to be able to open and read the Garden Candy eBook. Here is information for installing an eBook Reader App onto popular phones. Your phone may be slightly different.

We recommend these ebook reader apps:

Apple iOS Devices: Apple iBooks
Android Devices: FBReader
Kindle Devices: The Kindle Built-in App

The Kindle Reader App is also available for both Apple and Android devices, not just Kindle devices. If that’s you’re reader of choice see instructions below. If you’re using a different eReader app, follow the in-app instructions for loading epubs into your eReader.

Apple iPhones and iPads:

We recommend Apple iBooks as a free iPhone ebook reader. It comes pre-installed on all current Apple iOS devices.

If iBooks is not already on your phone or tablet, you can find it by clicking the Apple App Store icon on your phone or tablet.

The Apple App Store icon on you phone or tablet will look something like this:
