Instafreebie App FAQ for Authors

The Instafreebie app makes ebook delivery faster and simpler for anyone who uses our site. Readers can use the app to access any book they have claimed from the Instafreebie site. Books can be moved from the Instafreebie app to any ereader app currently installed on the reader's device. This support article will answer any questions you have about what the Instafreebie app means for you as an author.

Q: How does the app work?

A: Readers will claim books from the Instafreebie website. After they enter in their information to claim a freebie, we'll send them a Reader Login Code. Once the readers logs in to the app, they'll find their claimed books in their new Instafreebie Library! They can instantly download the books to their favorite reading app. For authors, that means less time handling delivery issues and more time doing the writing you love!

Q: Can readers discover my book through the app?

 A: This version of the app is focused on improving deliverability for readers! Any book that is claimed using the Instafreebie site will appear on a reader's Instafreebie app after it is claimed. Readers will still need a giveaway link to find and download a book.

Q: Where should I send readers if they need technical support on the app?

A: You can link readers directly to our support articles on using the Instafreebie App for Android and using the Instafreebie App for iOS. If you know the specific device the reader is trying to download to, you can link them to our support articles on downloading ebook files from the Instafreebie App to the Kobo or Nook apps or on adding ebook files to the Kindle and Kindle App from the Instafreebie App. Readers who experience difficulty after viewing those articles can contact the Instafreebie Support Team at support [at]

Q: How does DRM work with the app?

 A: Books downloaded through the app will not include social DRM, even if you've enabled that option on the Instafreebie site. Since books will be downloaded directly to the readers' devices, the DRM is not necessary and would only complicate the experience for readers. If readers choose to receive their books via email, a digital watermark will be included as usual.
