If you’ve used an eReader before, you’ll probably be familiar with the controls, but the basics are listed below.
TURN THE PAGE:
Swipe left to go to the next page, or swipe right to go back a page. Alternatively, you can tap on the side of the screen – right to go forward a page, left to go back – to turn the page.
To access the in-page options, press and hold on the screen for one second, then release. A pop-up will appear with three options – Highlight, Add Note, and Switch to Audio. Using the start and end cursors, adjust the selected area to cover the passage you are interested in, then select one of the three options below:
Select the passage you would like to Highlight, and click the left-hand Highlight icon. This brings up a range of Highlight colours for you to choose between. Once one has been selected, the highlighting will remain on the page unless deliberately removed, and will be visible in the Contents menu.
ADDING A NOTE:
Select the passage you would like to add a Note to, and click the centre Note icon. This brings up a screen and your keyboard, and you can add Notes here. Once saved, these Notes will be visible in the side banners of the screen as red text boxes, and are also searchable via the Contents menu.
SWITCHING TO AUDIO:
Select the passage you would like played, and click the Audio button. This section of the novel will then be read aloud by the App.
OPENING THE MENU:
To open the in-eBook menu, tap the centre of your screen. This will bring up the menu options, giving you access to the following options: Jump to a Page, Add a Bookmark, Change Settings and the Contents Menu.
JUMP TO A PAGE:
Using the slider at the bottom of the screen, you can jump forward or backward in an eBook. Simply drag the cursor to the point in the book you are looking for, release, and the eBook will jump to that page.
ADD A BOOKMARK:
If you want to mark a particular page to review, or just keep track of where you are up to, you can do so using the Bookmark function. Simply tap the Bookmark symbol in the top right hand corner, and you’ll see the red Bookmark appear on the page. To remove it, simply tap the red Bookmark in the top corner.
You can Bookmark an eBook multiple times, and these Bookmarks can be viewed in the Contents Menu.
This menu (represented by three parallel line) covers the Contents, Bookmarks and Notes links. Using the top menu you can view chapters and jump directly to them, or view all Bookmarks and Notes you have added to the eBook.
