To access the settings in Special Stories, tap its Actions button at the top left in the main view, and then tap the Settings button. Depending on the version of iOS your device is running, the style may look slightly different to that shown here. Using the Actions button also provides access to organising, printing, exporting and importing stories: these additional facilities are explained in Chapter 8.

Note: Please don't use Apple's Settings app to manage the settings for Special Stories, as it won't show all of the options.

The different combinations of the above 4 settings, and how you can use them, are summarised in the table below:

Page TurningAutomaticSwipeTurning PagesTapping Pictures
by tapping arrow buttonsOFFOFFOFF or ONOFF or ON
by swiping left & rightOFF or ONONOFF or ONOFF or ON
by tapping pictureONOFFOFFON
automatic with soundONOFFONignored
automatic without soundONOFFOFFOFF

With Automatic set to ON, then if the Lock to Story padlock is closed (as explained in Chapter 4), the story goes back to the first page and starts again after the last page, otherwise it stops at the last page.

Other Settings in the Settings App

If you want to use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to transfer pictures and sounds between copies of Special Stories on 2 devices, you will need to have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled. See the next page for more details.

If you have an iPad, there is a Multitasking Gestures toggle switch in the General section of the Settings app, and we suggest you switch it off when using Special Stories. Otherwise, if your child puts several fingers on the screen, they can inadvertently make the app disappear from view.

Using with Switches

You can use Bluetooth switches with Special Stories. For information on how to configure the app for use with these, please refer to Chapter 9.
