When you launch Special Stories, it displays its main view, showing a list of stories.
It comes with one story built in, the Quick Start Guide. As you add your own stories, these are displayed as well, as shown on the right. You can organise your stories into collections: in this case, only the stories in the currently-selected collection are displayed. Chapter 6 explains all about collections.
To read and listen to a story, you tap its title or picture. To update an existing story, you tap its ⓘ; button on the right. To create a new story, you tap the + button at the top.
Tapping the Edit button allows you to rearrange the order of the stories, and delete any you no longer need. You cannot un-delete a story once you've deleted it.
Please note that you cannot update the Quick Start Guide and, unlike stories you create yourself, it has no spoken words. You can delete it, just like any other story, if you decide you no longer need it.
If you tap the Action button at the top left, you are presented with some Extra Actions, including facilities for managing collections, printing stories and transferring stories and collections from one device to another, plus easy access to documentation on the Special iApps web site: for more details, see Chapter 8.
There are a number of settings you can adjust to change the appearance and behaviour of Special Stories. These are all located in the Settings app, and described in detail in Chapter 7.
