Is there a limit on Downloads?

You have 30 days to download video files. We strongly recommend that you backup your videos files. Once the video link expires, we do not provide replacement for the video files.

Can I save your video tutorials on an Android device?

Yes. While it is possible to save the downloaded files directly to your Android device, we highly recommend that you download the files to your laptop or desktop computer, unzip the files, and then transfer them to your Android device.

How can I save your video tutorials on an Apple iOS device?

Unfortunately, Apple iOS devices will not permit video downloads from the web, as Apple only permits video downloads from the Apple iTunes and App Stores. (You can open the video files in Safari, but you cannot save the videos to your device.) To view our videos on an iOS device, purchase from a computer, and then sync the file to your device via iTunes.
