When you first open the app, the app will automatically download the rest of the 1.5 gigabytes of the book. During this time, we strongly recommend using a high speed internet connection through a hotspot and leaving the app open. Download times can vary greatly upon using a cellular network, iPad, and/or simply closing the app. After the download finishes and the book opens, a network connection is not required to view the book, but certain links in the book do require internet access.
