Warning before you update
Updates may cause loss of data. Please backup your data before installing a new version. We recommend you to back up your contents to iTunes in case of losing your data for unknown reasons while updating.
Is there an iCloud sync for my albums?
We are planning to add an iCloud option to establish a sync mechanism between iOS devices. Once this is achieved successfully, direct sync will take place automatically with iPhone/iPad, and you will experience a better Photobook+.
Why does Photobook+ uses Location Services?
Whenever a pictures is added to one of the album’s pages, the pictures will be taken from your photo library. Many pictures contain more information than you can see at your first glance. Beside the timestamp, when a picture was taken, also geo location information are stored in the so called EXIF-data of a picture. When you take pictures with your iPhone or iPad, all these information are automatically stored to the picture.By retrieving a picture from your iPad’s photo album, Photobook+ gets the image including all ‘unvisible’ stored data. Therefore, iOS will ask you, if you allow Photobook+ the usage of location information, since they are stored in the picture’s data.
By denying the usage of Location Services to Photobook+, iOS will not hand out the photo to Photobook+, which is just fair, since most of the pictures contain geo information.
Location Services are generally used to:
- Retrieve your current position and update the photo’s geo-data with your current position
- Get access to the geo-data of previously taken pictures
- Locate you on a map
How can I enable Location Services?
First, make sure, “Location Services” are enabled in your “General” Settings. Second, make sure to allow Photobook+ the usage of Location Services. Photobook+ asks the first two starts to approve it. (Then it won’t ask again.)
You can enable location services specifically on a per-app level. Make sure, location services are enabled for Photobook+ in the Settings app under General > Location Services.
Location detection works using GPS, WiFi and celltower triangulation (ordered by accuracy). GPS generally achieves best results but only works if the iOS device has a line of sight to enough satellites and thus might not work in indoor locations. In these situations WiFi triangulation is a good backup.
I cannot share my album’s on Facebook while on 3G. What can I do?
This is a known issue in iOS. Sharing large amounts of data with Facebook using 3G will result in an exceed of the allowed transfer data size. Try sharing large albums using a Wifi connection.
Why can’t I share multiple pages on Twitter?
If you post something on Twitter it has to fit into a certain amount of data. Usually images, text and urls shouldn’t exceed the data size to fit up to 140 characters. This is usually one image + some description text.
How can I backup my created albums?
Backup is important to keep a track of your data in case of abrupt malfunction or data loss. Photobook+ users are given the option to use the iTunes File Sharing function and save a backup of all albums onto your computer.
