Is it possible to download from Freegal directly to an iPhone?
A Freegal application is now available for download from the App Store (tap your App Store icon on your phone's home screen). Search "Freegal" in the App Store search field and it should return the application as a top result. Simply download the free Freegal app and install it on your device. You will need to enter your library card number to access your Freegal account from your iPhone. Once logged in you will be able to search for and download music from your iPhone.
Alternatively, the instructions below describe how to add music downloaded from Freegal to your iOS devices should you acquire your files through your personal computer (note, these instructions are taken directly from the Freegal technical FAQ http://www.freegalmusic.com/questions):
To get music on the Iphone, Itouch or Ipad, we recommend the following procedure: · Download Freegal files to your computer desktop by doing the following: o 1. Press “download now” o 2. Press “save”. o 3. Direct download to desktop. · Next import the file into Itunes, and the following is the easiest way: o Open Itunes then drag the file from the desktop to the open application. The next time you synch your device the Freegal file will be both on their “home base” computer and their mobile device. Freegal does not currently have its own app, but it is something we are considering. The primary advantages of an app for this service would be easy navigation from a small screen and direct downloading where it doesn’t already exist. The drawback to an app is the downloaded music then resides within the app. Let’s say for instance you had an Ipad app which stored your Freegal Music. What happens if you want to go jogging? You will be lugging your tablet with you on that jog. However if you stored your Freegal music on your “home base” computer, you could have your Freegal Music wherever you wanted it.
