Quick Tip for Android – Streaming Books


Note: In order to stream books, you must have updated your Android app to the version released on April 2, 2015.

Live streaming is one of the best features included on the WORDsearch Android app. Any time that you have an internet connection, you can open your library and use your books without downloading them to your device.

When you first open the app after signing in, you will see the books in your library. To stream a book, tap the book that you would like to read, anywhere except the “i” icon. This will open your book and you are ready to read!


If you would like to download a book for offline reading (somewhere that doesn’t have the internet), tap on the “i” icon next to the book title. This will show you the product details and give you the option to download the book.


The app will ask if you are sure you want to download, and once you tap yes, you will see a moving blue bar under your title until it is finished downloading.

If you would like to see all the books you currently have downloaded on your device, you can tap All Products at the top of the screen and then tap Downloaded from the drop-down list of categories.

    Will annotations made on the Android sync with the desktop and/or iPad devices?

  3. Can I move the books that I’ve downloaded to my SD card? If so, how do I find the books on my device? I’ve looked and can’t find them.

    While reading a Bible commentary the verse links and cross references work only when you are online. Even then the links will not work from within pop up window. This is a great inconvenience. We need all links to work even when we are offline.
