Special Stories User Guide - Getting Started

Back     Contents     Next

Logging In

You will be prompted to login by entering your email address and product key the first time you use the app, and you must do so before you will be able to access the activities. If you do not use the app for a long time, you may be required to enter these details again the next time you do use it. Installation instructions can be found in Chapter 2.

In some situations, for instance in an organisation with multiple product keys, you may have been allocated a username, which you must use instead of your email address when logging in.

Creating Stories

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 in the screenshots below. You can organise your stories into collections: in this case, only the stories in the currently-selected collection are displayed. Chapter 7 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.

Editing Your Stories

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.

If you tap the Action button, you are presented with some Extra Actions, including settings, 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 9.

Please Note

You cannot update the Quick Start Guide. You can delete it, just like any other story, if you decide you no longer need it.


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 and described in detail in Chapter 8.
