This program will let you take your Watchtower files and convert them to iPad/iPhone-ready format. You will lose the images, but the library text will translate.

Step 8

Click on your device again and click "Sync." This will get the Watchtower Library onto the iPhone/iPad. You can access it by clicking "iSilo" on your device.
