I’m having trouble downloading to my phone and tablet
If you want to download to a mobile device you will need an app like iZip or Winzip to uncompress the Zip file; they are free, quick to download, and easy to use.
Here is the link for iZip (Apple)
And for 7Zipper (Android)
After you have clicked on the download link in your confirmation email, your browser might take a couple of minutes working in the background before offering you various options for opening the files (and one will include these apps) .
