The 'RYA Books' App 

Access RYA eBooks through the 'RYA Books' app

We put all our eBooks within a single app rather than on their own as stand-alone eBooks to give us more flexibility to create interactive and connected content. 

It also gives us the opportunity to extend the RYA members discount to this new format.

Download the free 'RYA Books' app for your chosen platform below in order to access RYA eBooks. We’ve tested our app on a range of devices but we recommend you download the app and try a free taster first, (which you can download and browse). 

This will ensure its compatible with your system and give you an insight into the ways we have enhanced the digital version – essentially, you can try before you buy. 

See below for more information on where the app is available (performance will be more reliable with later operating systems):

We are planning to upgrade RYA eBooks on Macintosh computers.

*System Requirements: PC - Windows XP or later; Mac - OS X v10.6 or later. You may need to ensure the latest version of Adobe AIR is installed. Mac users will need to temporarily alter their security settings in order to install the app. For more information go to the Apple support pages for OS X 10.7 & 10.8 and 10.9.

Push Notifications (iOS only) 

When you download the app you will be asked if you’re happy to accept “push notifications” from the RYA. This will only be used to notify you when a new edition is ready to view/download and is designed to help keep you informed. 

If you have already downloaded the app and wish to enable this facility all you need to do is enable badges/alerts within the notifications tab in the settings menu on your Apple device.

Viewing, Printing & Exporting

In order to take full advantage of interactivity and functionality, RYA eBooks are designed to be read solely within the RYA Books app. There is no provision to print or export to other applications.
