Can I use my phone or tablet to access digital downloads?

AtmosFX always recommends using a desktop or laptop computer to access your digital downloads. However, there are times when another computer isn't available or convenient. It helps to have a back-up option. 

It is possible to get your files to open and play on your mobile device. You'll need the following two things:

  • Lots of free storage space
  • An app to decompress .Zip files

Storage Space

Many of our digital downloads, especially complete collections, are simply too large to download on a mobile device. Because file sizes of our decorations vary, we can not tell you exactly how much free space you will need.

Decompressing the .Zip file will create a decompressed copy of the file. That means the free space on your device must be at least twice the size of your downloaded file.

.Zip File Decompression Apps

Desktop and laptop computers have software that can automatically open .Zip files. Phones and tablets usually do not. 

You'll need to visit the app store on your device to find a decompression app. We can not recommend a particular app because there are so many available which serve different needs for different devices and users.

How to Use the Decompressed Files

Once your .Zip file is successfully decompressed, you will have a new folder which contains your digital decorations. You can now delete the .Zip file to save space on your device.
