How do I use the app?
Within the Content list of the app there is a HELP section that gives an overview of how the app works, including navigation tips.
How do I know when a new issue is available?
You will need to enable push notification on your Ipad. To do this you need to go to Settings, Notification Center, and scroll down to The V&A and tap it and then choose either the Banners or Alerts options at the top of the screen. You will then be alerted monthly when the new issue launches.
How do I download the next issue?
Once you have received a notification that the next issue is available, you can download it from the library section of the app. To access this, hold your finger on any page of the app to bring up the sliding menu. Underneath this menu is a Library option. Tap the Library icon and you will see the new issue available for download as well as the full back catalogue. You can activate automatic downloads by selecting the Store icon at the bottom of the screen.
Why can't I see the issues I've downloaded previously?
Firstly, make sure that you are logged in to the same iTunes account that you downloaded the app with before. If so, select Missing issues? from the Library screen and then tap Restore on the pop up that appears.
Can I transfer my digital subscription to another device?
You can access any issues on any iPad as long as you use the same iTunes account.
My issue is stuck at the 'Processing' stage. What do I do?
This is typically fixed by restarting the app. If not, delete and reinstall the app. To do this, tap on Library, select Archive on the affected issue and tap Archive on the pop up. You can then download the affected issue by selecting Download from the issues list.
Why does it look like pages are not fully loading?
Occasionally corruptions occur during download. Deleting and re-downloading the issue usually fixes the problem. To do this, tap on Library, select Archive on the affected issue and tap Archive on the pop up. You can then download the affected issue by selecting Download from the issues list.
Why can't I hear any audio playing within videos?
This app uses the iPad audio controls. Make sure that these are not set to Mute.
How do I delete an issue?
Tap on Library, select Archive on the issue you want to delete and then tap Archive on the pop up.
How do I exit from the interactive map?
You can either tap the V&A logo at the top-left of the page to be returned to the content list or tap and hold your finger anywhere on the screen to access the page scroll.
