Following are frequently asked questions regarding the free CHA Manuals app.
1. How do I get the app?
Download the free CHA Manuals App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Once the app is installed on your mobile device you will be prompted to Login and set your password.
2. Are the cross-reference links active?
Yes, all cross-reference links are active. If you tap a link that takes you to another place in the same chapter, use the “Return” button in the bottom navigation bar to return to your previous spot. If you tap a link that takes you to a different chapter, use the top “Back” button to go back to the previous page.
Because the content in the app is presented as a reflowable html document, each chapter is viewed as one long page. Therefore, if you link to a different place in the same chapter there is no page to go ‘back’ and you must use the “Return” button to go to your previous location.
3. Is the app searchable?
Yes, the app features a robust search functionality. Simply tap the “Search” icon in the bottom navigation bar and enter the desired search term. All instances of the search term in the manual will be displayed, with links that take you directly to the desired location.
4. Are the external links active?
Yes, external websites are active. When you tap on an external link in the app, it will open a web browser window and take you to the desired website. To get back to the manual content simply tap the “CHA Manuals” prompt in the top left. Please note some website addresses may have changed since publication and CHA cannot be responsible for broken links.
5. When a new version of a manual is released, will I automatically receive it?
CHA members will automatically receive new versions and previous editions will be archived within the app. Nonmembers will have the option of purchasing the updated manual and may archive previous editions.
6. Does the app provide offline access?
Yes, the app provides offline access. Content can be downloaded to your device’s cache for offline access by tapping the “download” icon in the top right.
