In this article, we want to show you how to get around the iOS App so you can begin to discover new and amazing content. Here are the most frequently asked "How to's" about profile photos, searches, sharing, Stacks and more:
1. How do I add a profile photo to my account?
If you signed up by connecting one of your social accounts, your profile picture will be the profile picture associated to your social profile.
If you signed up by email address, you can log into your account on the Issuu website (www.issuu.com) and follow the steps in this article: How to Upload a Profile Photo. Your profile will be updated the next time you sign into the iOS app.
2. How do I search for publications?
Once logged into the iOS App, you can type in a keyword, the title, the name of the publisher or a category into the search bar and then our search engine will do the rest of the work to find the publications you wish to read.
3. How do I share a publication?
If you love a publication and want to share it with friends, family, or coworkers, you can share the publication directly from the app. Click on the three dots on the bottom right hand corner of your phone screen while viewing the publication you want to share.
When you click on the share button, you'll be brought to this screen where you can select where you want to share the publication. Share via text message, e-mail, to Facebook, Twitter, Slack, Pinterest, and LinkedIN.
4. What else can I do with a publication once I have it open?
Add to Downloads - You can read publications offline by downloading it
Save - Allows you to save publications in an organized way in "Stacks"
Share - We covered this above but you can share a publication via text message, e-mail, to Facebook, Twitter, Slack, Pinterest, and LinkedIN
Create Clips - Want to share a photo, a recipe, or an article out of the publication you're reading? You can create a clip of it and share it with friends via social, email or text message!
Report - See something inappropriate, report it and we'll take the necessary action
Go to Publisher - Want to see more publications by the same publisher? Click on "Go to Publisher" and from here you can even follow them and be notified when they upload new content.
5. How do I create Stacks and add and remove publications from them?
Do you want to start saving your publications or organizing all of the publications you like by category? You can do that by creating what we call a "Stack" in your app.
Start by clicking on the three buttons on the bottom right hand corner of your phone screen. Then click save.
You can create as many Stacks as you want. To do that, click on the + button on the top right corner of your phone screen. If you have Stacks already created, choose the right Stack to add the publication to.
It's important to note that you can have unlimited publications under a stack!
No longer want a specific publication under your Stack? You can remove it by clicking on your avatar on the bottom right hand corner you see on the screen shot below and click on "Stacks."
Click into the Stack category.
Click on the three buttons you see on the top right corner and remove publication or delete stack entirely.
You can also edit the name of the Stack here too.
