The latest on getting S&T Digital Version on an iPad:

After many trials and tribulations, here are the methods to get the digital versions down to your iPad.

There are two options:

1. Using the Nxtbook Nxtstand iPad app.

Instructions for installing the app (from S&T):

a. Go to the App Store and download Nxtbook Nxtstand.

b. When it has loaded…..tap on the Nxtbook icon.

c. When it opens … across the bottom tap on the catalog button.

d. At the top you will find a search bar and enter the magazine title. Or click on the "S" in the alpha list along the right-hand edge of the screen and find Sky & Telescope in the magazines displayed.

e. Tap on the magazine you want. It will pop up "Read", or "Download" option. Tap on "Download".

f. It may ask to authenticate…… tap yes.

g. It may ask for permission to push……. tap yes.

h. Tap on your library button. It is located to the left of your catalog button.

i. You will see your magazine in your library…tap on it….

j. A "Read" / "Update" / "Delete" option appears. Select "Read". If you are not already logged in, it will bring up a sign in screen.

j. Sign in (if necessary) with email address and password.

k. The issue should be viewable.

NOTE: Never log out from Nxtbook/Nxtstand. Otherwise if you try to read issues offline, it will ask to authenticate and since you are offline you will be unable to get access to the issue.

2. Using Safari

a. Log into the digital issue of S&T

b. Select the issue you want to read

c. Click the .PDF icon. It should download the issue.

d. Select what app you want to use to read the issue. If you have iBooks installed, that should be one of the options.

e. The issue should be available to read at any time.
