NOTES

Riven for iOS is a very large application. We’ve managed to optimized Riven from its original DVD size to a little over a gigabyte, so please be patient - download times can be longer.

Because of the way iOS installs apps, you will need to have more than a gigabyte of free space to install Riven. Once it's installed you can use the extra space again.
