The Gumroad Library App
What is the Gumroad Library app?
We built the Gumroad Library app to help your customers have the best mobile experience possible. The Gumroad Library app serves as a mobile version of the Gumroad Library. It offers native experiences for watching, listening to, and reading mobile-friendly Gumroad products.
The Gumroad Library app is not the same as the Gumroad Dashboard app. The Gumroad Dashboard app lets you track your daily, monthly, and all time sales totals wherever you go. You can also use the Gumroad Dashboard app to receive push notifications every time you make a new sale.
Gumroad Library for iOS
Before you begin, make sure you have downloaded and installed Gumroad Library on your iOS device. Currently, the app is officially supported on all iPhones, iPods, and iPads running iOS11 and above.
Logging into the app
When you click the Open in App button, you may be prompted to use login information on the Gumroad app. If you already have a Gumroad account, simply log into the Gumroad app using your known email and password. If you do not have an account, we will provide you with a brief number code to use as your password.
Once you login to the app using this code, your Library will already be full of goodies. Goodies that you paid for, but still, the magic is the same.
Enjoying content in the app
Scroll through your library, and tap the cover image of a product to access its attached files. To stream your files, slide the toggle to the right and select Stream. To download the files in a product directly to your phone for offline access later, slide the toggle to the right and select Save. This will start the download process for your files. If this option does not appear then the creator chose to have the product be streaming only.
Gumroad Library for Android
Before you begin, make sure you have downloaded and installed Gumroad Library on your Android device. Currently, the app is officially supported on all Android devices with screens up to 7 inches wide, running Android 4.1 and above.
We have organized this article so that you can easily understand the purchasing flow and how to open your products
Buying on your desktop?
If you buy a product on Gumroad, and it is mobile-friendly, on your receipt you will see an Open in App button. Click that and follow the instructions to open the product in the app.
If you do not have a Gumroad account, you may have to use a temporary password to log into the app. If you already have a Gumroad account, the product will be in your mobile library when you open the product.
Buying on your Android?
If you do not have an account with Gumroad, you may have to enter your password to receive a login link from us. If you already have the app installed, you will be able to open your purchase immediately. Go to your receipt, select View Content, scroll down and click Open in App.
Q: Why doesn't my purchase show up in the app?
It is possible that the product you purchased is not mobile friendly. For example, it might be a ZIP file, which needs to be opened on your desktop. Or a Mobi file. Essentially, the product does not contain a file that can be read, watched, or listened to on our app.
Q: My "Open in App" button is not working.
A: Please contact the seller and ask them to send you a new receipt. From that receipt, follow the steps listed above. Click here to learn how to find the seller's contact information.
Q: There are files missing from my library!
A: Email Gumroad's support team using our contact form, with the name of the product you purchased and the email address you used to buy it. We will gladly add this product manually to your library! If the file is not mobile-friendly, however, we will not be able to add it to your library.
