  3. 3. Visit Us On The Web iphone@voices.com www.voices.com/iphone Copyright © 2012 Interactive Voices Inc. All Rights Reserved. Download The App 1. First you will need to create an account on the Apple Store website before you can download any apps. 2. When you sign up, you will need a credit card or payment information, even if you only plan on downloading free apps, it will still require this information. After you are done with this process, you should have a user name (email address) and a password. You will need these to download the app. 3. From your iPhone, click on the App store button and scroll through to find the app, you want to install. 4. Select the app, you want and hit the "free" button (if it's a free app), it will then change the "free" to "install". Click again to install. Here is where you will enter your user name and password. You should only have to enter your username once and your iPhone will remember it, but you will need to always enter a password to prevent just anyone from downloading apps to your iPhone. 5. Once your iPhone has started downloading the app, a status bar will show up to indicate how long it will take to download (around 1 minute). Once it is complete, you can access your Voices.com app.
