How Do I Read Books Offline with the myON App?
If you want to read books when no internet access is available, please start by downloading the app. To do so, go to the corresponding app store for your device (see myON Apps for links) and add the myON app to your device.
The myON app is available for free download on Chromebooks, iPads, Android tablets and Kindle Fire. The myON app is NOT designed for use on mobile phones, and myON’s use on phones is not supported.
The myON app is designed solely as a source for offline reading and can store up to 20 downloaded books per device for reading when an internet connection is not available. The myON app does not have the full functionality available to students when using myON via a web browser.
When using the myON app, students will not have access to teacher-assigned projects or end-of-book quizzes. If you have Wi-Fi available regularly, we recommend using the web browser on your device to access myON in order to take advantage of all the features available in the program.
After downloading the app, please add a user:
- Tap or click on the appropriate icons to add a user:
Android and Kindle Fire:
You can have each user sign in to the mobile app starting through the browser, teachers can sync their students, or users can be added manually. See Android App or Kindle Fire App.
- To select your school, begin typing the name in the appropriate box or field, and corresponding options will appear. Select your school from the drop down list.
- Enter your user name and your password or PIN as you would to log in in via a web browser.
Note: To find their PIN, users can log in to myON using a web browser on a computer. After students log in, they click the blue icon in the top right corner of the page to open a message with their PIN. Teacher or administrators can select their name, then select PIN in the menu to open the PIN message.
- Once logged in, you can download books by following the directions in How Can I Download Books onto the myON App?.
