Can I stream titles - play without downloading? Sort of...Once a title is checked out, you have two options:
1. "Download and Play" Play downloaded titles from any device in the RBdigital app while offline. Perfect for commuting or air travel.
2. "Stream live" from the RBdigital website (not the app) without having to download titles first. Once you check out a title you can listen to it on any computer, tablet, or smartphone with a Web browser and Internet connection. Note: since you are connected to the Internet, usage charges may apply depending on your device data plan.
If I do download to my computer, are my titles be added to my iTunes or Windows Media Player library?
It defaults to iTunes to manage downloads. But the files are not saved to iTunes so if you choose to manage your title files manually, you can opt to do that through iTunes or Windows Media Player.
To listen to a title via the app on a smart phone - you must download all the chapters. These are saved to general internal storage, so to put them on an SD card, you must move them manually.
When a title is returned, are the files deleted from my device?
When a title expires or is returned, the tracks will need to be removed from your device manually.
