How does the SHAPE CODINGTM App work?
There are several videos available on this page that demonstrate how to use the SHAPE CODINGTM App. There is also a help button (the question mark button) inside the App which has more videos. This is specific to each area of the app, so please click on this anytime you have a problem. Please look through these as they should answer most of your questions
The app is asking me for a username and password. I don’t know what it is?
If it is the first time you have used the app you will need to create a new username and password. You can always create another new one under “create new teacher”. Each teacher has their own set of students. Whenever you login using your username and password, you will be able to see your students and their previous settings will be saved. If you have forgotten your username and password use “admin” in both the username and password boxes click "set password" and change password to a new one. Click "back" (top right) and now login with that new password.
I can’t see all the shapes – how can I see more?
The default settings of the app show a limited number of shapes (so as not to confuse children who are just starting to use the app), but it is possible to add more. If you go into settings you are able to turn more shapes on so that they show in the App. Not all shapes are available in the Lite version, so please ensure you have installed the full paid version.
Can more than one person use the App?
Yes, each App can have multiple teachers with multiple students, so it is possible for more than one person to use the App on the same device. One copy of the App is needed per device.
How can I transfer my account/information on to another device?
The App is installed on your device and there is no connection to the cloud, so all your information is stored on the device. So, there is no way of transferring information from one device to another.
How safe is my data?
All your data is saved within the device that your App has been downloaded onto. No information is stored in the cloud, everything is on the device, so your data is safe within the App.
My App has frozen – what can I do?
If you have tried reloading the App and this has not resolved the issue, then please email email@example.com and let us know what device you are using.
Can I change the accent of the narrator on the App?
It is possible to use different voices with different accents and this can be set for each child. See the help video on the App within the “Edit Options” area of the Settings (click the question mark).
