    Tumblebooks!

    TumbleBooks is pleased to announce the launch of our new site for iPad and mobile devices!!
     
    Anyone logging into TumbleBookLibrary from an iPad or iPhone will be redirected to the iPad content.
     
    Or you can access the iPad site through the “Choose” drop down menu on the top right hand corner of the site.
     
    You can also view the TumbleBooks iPad site with 2 clicks on your iPad.
     
    Simply follow the instructions below:
     
    •    Post onto your school/library webpage a direct link to your TumbleBookLibrary account
    •    Open up your Safari Web browser on the home screen of your iPad by tapping its icon.
    •    Go to the school/library web page where your TumbleBooks direct link is posted by typing its location into the address bar and pressing Go - you       want to create a shortcut for it.

    •    Press the button to the immediate left of the address bar, which is shaped like a small box with an arrow pointing to the right.
    •    Select "Add to Home Screen" and type a name for the shortcut's icon that will be displayed on the home screen of your iPad.
    •    Tap the small blue "Add" button in the upper right corner of the "Add to Home" box. The shortcut will be saved to the iPad's home screen and will return you to the Web page when tapped.
     
    **With this set up you can simply tap the shortcut on your home screen of your iPad and tap the TumbleBooks icon that will bring users to the iPad site of the library/school’s TumbleBookLibrary account.
     
     
    In the next few weeks, you will see new content for all of the categories - including new educational games, quizzes and book reports built specifically for the iPad and mobile platform.
     
    Every TumbleBook in the Story Book, Language Learning and Non fiction categories will be converted to an iPad compatible format. All our National Geographic videos - and the books they are paired with - will also be available in our new site.
     
    In the next few weeks, all our audio books, both in the TumbleBookCloud and AudioBookCloud collections, will also be iPad, iPhone and mobile compatible.
     
    And keep your eyes out for a brand new Playlist feature which we will launch shortly.
     
    We still have a little work to do on the iPad site but you will see it growing and getting better every day.
     
    Please note the iPad site is not an app and is accessed through your browser.
     
    Happy Tumbling!
