6. Downloading and Using the Whillo App

Whillo is available on iOS (for Apple devices) and will be available for Android/Google devices the first week of June 2022.

To download the app, simply go to the App Store on your Apple device (or Play Store on your Android device) and search for “Whillo”. This should bring up the Whillo app.

From there you can download the app to your iOS or Android device.

Once you’ve downloaded and opened the app you will be presented with the option to either:

  1. Log In: Select this option if you’ve signed up for a Whillo account online at (recommended)
  2. Sign Up: If you have not yet signed up for a Whillo account you can do so directly via the app. Please note that currently you are not able to apply discount codes when signing up via the app (see point #3 above which covers discount codes)

Once you’ve logged in, you will see a screen similar to this:

From here you can scroll down to see more books, scroll side-to-side to go through our various collections, or click on the different banners to see what books or tracks are inside.

If you want to build your own “Queue” or “Collection” of books, simply click on the book, then click on the three dots, or menu button, on the right hand side of the screen, like this:

This will bring up the following menu:

Here is a quick summary of what these options do:

  1. Tapping “Add to Queue” allows you to build your own collection of books you want to listen to. If you start listening to one book and it ends, Whillo will automatically play the next track in your queue.
  2. Clicking on “Save to Favorites” will save that title to your library (middle button at the bottom of your screen). Here you can save your favorite titles for easy future reference.
  3. Clicking on the “Download” button will download the audiobook or music track right to your device. This means that if you are going on a road trip, camping etc. you will not need WiFi to listen to the track. Instead of streaming the track over the Internet it will be saved locally to your device. Please note that you must have an active subscription in order for the “Download” option to work correctly.

We’ll be going more in depth on some of these topics in future articles. If you have any questions in the meantime please do not hesitate to reach us at or via our contact form.
