Warning: Use of Offline iGUIDEs on mobile devices is not officially supported. This article is available only as a consideration to mobile users.
iGUIDEs are available for offline viewing in a web browser from local disk by downloading the offline zipped copy of the iGUIDE provided in the iGUIDE Report. You need to unzip it and point your browser to the index.html file found in the unzipped folder.
This is quite easy to do on a computer. But mobile devices are a bit more challenging as they were not designed to provide easy manipulation of local files. If you want to use a tablet for presentation, the easiest way is to use your phone as a hotspot to get internet access on the tablet and use an online iGUIDE.
If that is not an option, the process gets a bit more involved but may still be doable.
- Windows: The process on Windows devices is trivial and the procedure is the same as on a desktop computer.
- Android: With Android you need to first download zipped iGUIDE, then use a file manager app to unzip it and find the location of the index.html on your local storage (full path). Then you need to enter in the address bar of the web browser: "file:// (instead of “http://youriguide.com/”).
- Apple: The process on Apple devices is the most complicated. You need to install an app that is an offline browser. The GoodReader app and HTML Reader app are couple such apps. Then you need to load the unzipped iGUIDE into that app. For HTML Reader you need to use iTunes, for GoodReader you can get the files into your device via Dropbox.
