Reading your DFB purchases on an Android device consists of just three steps:
1.) Download the file to your computer for safekeeping.
2.) Get the PDF on your device
3.) Open the PDF in a supported App like Adobe Reader.

1. Always Download the PDF File to Your Computer
This is very important. Even if you don’t plan on reading the e-Book on your home computer, you’ll want to download a version there for safe-keeping. The download link you will receive is good for 5 downloads or 120 hours, whichever comes first, so you’ll want to make sure you have it somewhere safe where you can hold onto it. Save it to your computer hard drive so that you’ll know where it is the next time you want to access it.
2. Getting the PDF on Your Android Device
The easiest way to get the file on your device is simply to open the email with the download links on your device and then download the file(s) to your device from there. If the email was sent to another address you can always forward it to your phone.
If you no longer have access to the original links, or don’t have email access on the device, you can always copy the file from your computer. (You did save the file to your computer, right?) You can follow these instructions for windows machines or use Android File Transfer for Mac. We usually suggest copying the file to your downloads directory, but the reader should find them anywhere.
3. Reading the PDF
Once you’ve copied the PDF to your Android device, you can use Adobe PDF Reader to view the file. Just open “Adobe Reader” from your list of Apps. If by chance Adobe Reader is not already installed on your device, you can easily download it from Google Play (the Android App Store). Then you’ll have two tabs “Recently Viewed” and “PDF Files.” Go to the “PDF Files” and give it a second to search your SD drive and it should find the file. Just click on it and read away.
Other eBook Readers
Most of the eBook readers like Aldiko and the Kindle App for Android will also allow you to read the PDFs, but the installation is slightly different and more complex so it’s harder for us to help with this process.
