Arranging Your Slides:
Set any picture as your background
Double tap on your image and set it as the background – it’s much
easier than stretching an image and making sure it covers all four corners.
Change the background of your text
Make sure your font color, background color, and slide design
work together to make your text as legible as possible.
Remove white background from an image
Most of the time, it just looks better this way.
Flip an image
This quick tip allows you to arrange images exactly the way
you want them.
Undo and redo illustrations
Undo or redo illustrations with one simple tap to spare yourselves
the headache of re-creating from scratch.
Tap anywhere to continue
A nice clean way to start your game: read the cover page, and then
use this setting to have your player tap anywhere on the screen to proceed.
Perfect hotspot tracing
Give your lessons a professional finish with auto-correct tracing for perfect rectangles and circles.
Record an intro for your soundboard
Don’t forget to give your players some context. Record an intro
to explain what they should tap on and what they can expect to hear.
Add flashcards to soundboard
Enhance language apps and diagrams with text bubbles – pair audio with visual for enriched learning.
Jump to a specific page
This feature adds a layer of personalization that allows you to give
each and every player a game flow and experience tailored to their specific interests.
Record answer and mistake feedback for questions
Give your players the help and encouragement they need and deserve.
If they answered a question correctly, cheer them on.
If they answered a question incorrectly, give them an extra hint.
Create now, arrange later. You can decide to reorganize the flow
of your app at any point during the creation process.
Name your game
What’s in a name? A lot, it turns out! “Game 326” won’t entice
players the same way “Louie’s Language Labyrinth” will … Just sayin’ …
Change the cover color
Let’s be honest, people judge books by their covers all the time.
Be sure to pick a color that goes well with the design of your cover page.
Select or delete background music
Choose the music that best suits your app … or choose no music
at all if you prefer to focus on your audio segments.
