The Wider Image is currently available exclusively on the iPad. iOS5 and above is supported. A fast WIFI or cellular connection is recommended.
The initial download from the App Store is small and should only take a few seconds. The app features a wealth of rich media content, which downloads as you navigate through it. Download speeds will depend on your network connection and speed of navigation.
Whilst the frequency will vary, we aim to add new stories daily. The app updates automatically at regular intervals and each time the app is launched.
The app is designed to be a connected experience, however, content you have accessed in the past 7 days is stored on your device. Connect to the internet for updates and to navigate further.
When reading extended text – stories, factboxes, photographer profiles - pinch-out to enlarge the text.
Tap the favourite icon in the toolbar to save a story to a collection. Select the default “My Collection” or create a new one. You can create up to 6 collections and add up to 24 stories in each collection. You can also favorite up to 6 photographers and 6 countries to follow new work.
The main image in each story can be shared by email. Tap the Share icon in the toolbar. We plan to introduce social sharing features in a future release.
Toggle the side switch on your iPad, as this can mute certain sounds on your device. If your side switch is used to lock screen rotation, double tap the Home button, flick from left to right along the bottom of the screen, and tap the mute button on the bottom left to enable sound.
