Next up, head over to the Browse page. Here you can see all the items available to download or purchase. Across the top of the page you will see five tabs: Early War, Mid War, Late War, Other Eras (Great War, Vietnam and Arab-Israeli) and finally Reference.

Under the first row of tabs is a second, colour-coded row of tabs. These tabs will help you filter each period by geographical locations appropriate to each series of books. This row can be slid left and right to expose more options. For example, in the Late War category you have: East Front, Italy, France, Holland, Bulge, and Germany.

Once you have found a something you like the look of, you can either press the red button (this will either have a price, or be labelled Free in some cases), or you can tap on the book cover to view some more information. Inside this preview you can tap the book cover again to download a small book preview.

Once you have bought and downloaded an army list or book you can head into it. When it first opens you will see a couple of things. On the top right is a pair of up and down arrows. Tap these to change the way you scroll through a book: up and down, or left and right. To the right of these arrows is a magnifying glass, which will let you search the document - a handy tool if you are looking up a specific rule or unit. Finally, at the bottom are thumbnails of the pages in the document. Slide these left and right, then head straight to a specific page by tapping the thumbnail.
