First of all I need to say, I am in no way shape or form a techie. Anything I know about anything that has to do with the computer or my phone I learned from someone else, usually Maria from Kinder-Craze as she keeps me young and up on all the latest and greatest tricks. Now most of you may already know this, but for those of you that don't, this is for you. I’m going to take a crack at helping everyone that has had so much trouble downloading flash freebies from Facebook, because they're out and about on their phone. Granted, any freebie that your download on TpT is suppose to now be saved for you forever, but just in case that changes, something goes wrong, or the freebie is housed from somewhere other than TpT, here's another way to get them saved and downloaded. (This also works for QR code freebies too.) So that when the next one comes along, everyone will be ready.
Step One: Before you do anything, you need to go to your phone and download a free app from Dropbox. Dropbox is a free service that holds items that you download. You will also want to sign up for it on your computer as well. Click here to sign up. Remember it's free. This is where you will store the products you download.
Step Two: You're out and about and happen to see a free item on your phone that you would like to 'get.' Click on the link that will take you to the product page. (I'm using this 'forever freebie' from my Facebook page as an example.)
Step Three: On the TpT site, you will see the 'download now' button at the bottom of the page. Click on that button.
Step Four: When you do, you will see the product come up and, hopefully, there will be a gray bar at the top of the page that says 'Open in Dropbox.' If you don't see the 'Open in Dropbox,' just touch the gray bar in the place where the 'open in dropbox' should be, and it usually pops up. Click on the 'Open in Dropbox.'
Step Five: Below you will see the prompt to 'save to dropbox.' Select the 'save' option.
Step Six: When you do, the document becomes saved to your dropbox account, just like it did below.
And if you happened to have missed the freebie shown above, just click on the picture below to get it. It's available amongst my 'Teaching with Cars Items.' Go grab it up.
And be ready for that next flash freebie...
