Having trouble downloading or opening the zip files to your Android or Apple tablet, smart phone or other device?
The Isochronic Tones products contain multiple Mp3 files. So to reduce the number of files you have to download, each bundle of 7 mp3s is contained inside an archive, called a ‘zip file’. You download this single zip file to your computer or mobile etc., then you ‘unzip’ or ‘extract’ the files to access each Mp3.
On Windows computers, double click on the zip file, and you should see an option at the top of the window to ‘Extract the files’. Click on that and choose a folder to put your Mp3 files into.
Android mobiles don’t always come with the ability to open zip files as standard. Go to Google play and search for ‘AndroZip File Manager’ which is a free app. Once installed, open that and it should find your zip files and allow you to unzip them.
If you use a Mac the downloaded files may automatically extract to a new folder, depending on your settings. The original zip archive will be saved; check for a folder with the same name as your zip file. There’s also a free software program called iZip which will help you to open and manage zip files, available here: http://www.izip.com/
How do I Download the mp3’s to my iPad or iPhone?
Unfortunately iPhones can be a little tricky to download files to directly outside of iTunes, because Apple is quite restrictive and doesn’t seem to allow you to do that by default. There are free/low cost ‘download manager’ apps in the iTunes store, which will allow you to download files from websites, but they usually require you to playback the music inside the app, instead of using iTunes which most Apple users prefer.
The best option is to download the files to a Mac or Windows PC first, add them to iTunes on there, connect your iPhone to it and sync iTunes over to your iPhone. Doing it this way will allow you to play the tracks on your iPhone using iTunes. This same method also works best if you have an iPad you want to put any tracks onto.
