Why won't my phone or iPad store Freegal music download?
The songs that you try to download from a mobile device will need to be downloaded again on a computer to be added to a playlist. Since all of Apple's iOS based devices (iPods, iPhones, and iPads) are not normal storage devices, the Freegal songs cannot be stored on mobile devices. To save data requires a different type of access to the Freegal system.

When you access the site from a mobile device and hit the Download Now button, the song will be streamed and it will probably play once. However, the rules Apple has in place will not allow it to be stored on an iPad or phone. MP3 files need to be loaded into iTunes on a computer and synced with the mobile device. Please note: Library computers do not have iTunes installed.
