Changes to Our eBook Platforms

Latest News

We’re continually updating and improving our eBook platforms to boost performance and compatibility.

Here are the latest changes:

Online Access
Online Access Button

You can now use Online Access to view your eBooks in any browser. You can find Online Access links on all eBooks on the RYA website. Simply log in with your email address and RYA Books password. 

Windows 10
Microsoft Store

Click the “Get it from Microsoft” button to download the RYA Books app for Windows 10. If you’re using the RYA Books app for Windows 7, we strongly recommend updating or using an alternative platform.

We will continue to support and supply the Windows 7 app on request until it is no longer compatible on Windows 7, or when Microsoft stop extended support for Windows 7 in January 2020 (whichever comes first). Please email ebooks@rya.org.uk for further information.

Android
Google Play

Click the “Get it on Google Play” button to download the RYA Books app for Android. If you’re using our older Android app, we strongly recommend updating or using an alternative platform.

MacOS

Shortly, we will retire the RYA Books app for Mac. It’s based on ageing technology that doesn’t support our latest eBook functionality and no longer reflects our high quality standards. Unfortunately, a cost-effective alternative solution isn’t available at this stage.

The RYA Books app for MacOS is compatible with MacOS Mojave, but we strongly suggest switching to another platform.

We’ll continue to supply the RYA Books app for Mac on request until it’s no longer compatible, or when we’ve published all our content as books available on Apple Books (whichever comes first).

If you’d like to install the RYA Books app for Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) or later, please contact ebooks@rya.org.uk for install instructions.

Apple Books
iBooks Logo

We’re currently converting all RYA eBooks to Apple Books. They feature enhanced functionality and accessibility options.

You can read Apple Books using the Books app on any iOS or MacOS device. You’ll need to sign in with your Apple ID.

Please note: your payment is processed by Apple. RYA Books purchases don’t transfer to Apple Books, or vice versa.

Google Play Books
Google Play Button

We're also releasing our eBooks as Google Play Books. They feature accessibility options, but don’t support animations, videos or enhancements.

You can read Google Play Books using the Play Books app on Android, iOS or PC, as long as you’re signed into your Google account.

Please note: your payment is processed by Google. RYA Books purchases don’t transfer to Google Play Books, or vice versa.

Kindle
Kindle Store Logo

We’ve retired the RYA Books app for Kindle Fire, because it’s based on ageing technology that no longer reflects our high quality standards. Unfortunately, there’s been very little demand for the RYA Books app on this platform, and a new cost-effective solution that can support our evolving content is currently not available.

If you’re an existing RYA Books app on Kindle user, you’ll still be able to make in-app purchases and use your login details to access your RYA web shop purchases. However, we recommend switching to another platform.

If you have any questions or queries, please email ebooks@rya.org.uk.
