Scroll across to see all the resources in each Cloud, or use the button in the top right to toggle between grid or row view.

Sorting through Class Clouds

You can tap the My Clouds arrow down to see a drop down list of all your classes and easily switch to or navigate between then. You can also search by name for a specific Class Cloud. 

There are three clouds not directly related to your classes - these are ReadCloud's default system clouds and provide an easy way to quickly jump to locally stored books and interactive resources. These are:

  • My Purchases groups together your eBooks (PDFs and ePUBs) which can be access offline after each initial download
  • My Interactive Logins houses your publisher interactive digital resources alongside other digital subscriptions which you can access without needing to login again inside ReadCloud
  • Local books stores eBooks uploaded from your device - these are only visibile to you and allow you to take advantage of ReadCloud's unique eReading features
