Since April, Evidence Explained (2d ed., rev.) has been available for desktops and laptops, both Windows and Macs. The delivery software did not, at that time, cover tablets and smart phones. EvidenceExplained.com has just upgraded to software that makes it readable on almost every kind of device-e-readers, droid tablets and phones, iPads and iPhones, etc. (Amazon's proprietary Kindle is an exception. Amazon prefers to play in its own sandbox. :)
For current users of EE's electronic edition: If you purchased an EE license to use on PCs or Macs and you have one or two downloads left on that license, you have two options:
1. You may still download the version you purchased onto any other desktop or laptop, whenever you need it. Simply use the license file that was attached to the license email you received when you made your purchase. Nothing has changed for you.
2. An upgrade is available if you have downloads remaining and you want to upgrade to the new software that enables tablet and smartphone devices and eReaders. However: (a) because the more-advanced reader software is totally different software, the conversion process has to be manually performed by the site administrator; and (b) converting to the new super-duper software with expanded capability carries a $5 upgrade fee. For the conversion, email StoreManager@EvidenceExplained.com, supply your original order number and the email address under which you ordered, and he will process the upgrade for you.
If you are a new purchaser of EE or if you purchased the desktop-laptop version and have already used all your downloads, then downloading the electronic edition to work on whatever devices you have is a "Bookstore" transaction at EE's website.
