Download Content for Offline Use

Want to meditate on the go or for an upcoming trip where your cellular or WiFi connection might not be strong? With an active subscription to the Ten Percent Happier app you can download the courses, meditations, and podcasts so they're accessible offline.  

Download a Course

  1. Open the course you want to download. 
  2. Tap the "Download" button - a small cloud with a down arrow in it.
  3. When the course is done downloading you'll see the red checkmark and it'll be ready for offline play.
  4. You can access all of your Downloads in one place by tapping on Downloads at the bottom of the Profile tab.
  5. You can specify whether you want to Download only on Wi-Fi or also when connected to cellular data as follows:
    • Open your Profile tab:
      • iPhone and iPad, tap the profile icon in the upper, left hand corner of the app.
      • Android, look in the lower, right hand corner of the app.
    • Tap Settings (the gear icon) in the upper, right corner.
    • Tap Downloads.
    • Toggle Download only on Wi-Fi to the setting you prefer. When it’s red, you’ll only be able to download content when you’re in a good Wi-Fi signal. When it’s off, not red, you’ll be able to download using cellular.
  6. To delete a single downloaded course, toggle off the "Downloaded" button on the course page.
