The file you download is a zip (compressed) file which needs to be downloaded from a computer (windows based or apple).  Upon extracting the files you will see the various files associated with your intended delivery mode (computer, mobile phone, etc.).  The files will then need to be moved to the device for use with various flashcard and pdf viewers.
