Creative Genius On-the-Go! | FAQ


I press Back to try to go to the disc on the Home screen so I can play a different collection, but I never seem to get all the way back. What’s the shortcut?
The easiest way to get back to the disc is to tap the Home button on the tab bar. Then spin or tap to go to another activity.

Do I always have to go back to Home to switch collections?
No. Try tapping the shuffle button on the toolbar, or shake for random play. It will soon take you to another activity in another collection. Then swipe for next or previous.

Are there any other ways to pick a random activity?
When you spin the disc at the Home screen it will take you to a random activity in the collection that lands at 12 o’clock position.

What if I don’t want random play!
Tap, don’t spin, the collection of your choice on the disc. It will start you at the beginning of that collection. Then swipe to move forward.

Why don’t all my activities show? For example in the nav bar, it says “Wacktivities, Diversion 1 of 13.” I thought there were 50 activities in each collection?
Check your Settings. Under Players, tap Any to reveal all 50 activities.

What’s the purpose of the Players setting?
If, for example, there is only one individual who is available to play, then tapping the 1 or 1+ will allow you to hide activities that are for 2 or more persons.

I want to make writing entries my daughter calls out in order for her to answer a challenge. If I switch to the Write tool, the wording of the challenge is gone. What’s the best way to handle this?
To see the text of challenge as you work in the Write tool, do the following: While in the main activity screen, tap the Clipboard button to copy to the clipboard, switch to the Write tool, tap anywhere in the lined “Notebook” page, then tap Paste. Voilà! You have the entire text of the challenge in place and you’re ready to type. Tap Done and it is saved automatically. It can be retrieved and edited later by tapping the Notebook button in the tab bar.

Some activities encourage the player to make drawings and artwork. What do you suggest I do?
There are a number of fantastic draw programs available in the App store, some of them free. However, there is nothing stopping you from using plain old paper and traditional art tools either! What a concept! Seriously though, please tell us if you would like to see a drawing/painting module built into the app in a future version. We listen carefully to your comments and suggestions.

I’d like to print an entry in the Notebook. However, after I tap the Action Button, then tap Print, then tap Select Printer, there’s nothing there to select! What gives?
Unfortunately, this can be construed as a limitation of the current version of iOS, or it is an indication that you lack a device to print to. If you do have a printer handy, it must be an AirPrint compatible printer, of which, at this writing, is a short list of printers. A workaround is to email the file and print it from a device which is set up for printing.

I swipe for next but the numbers of each activity are not in order. How do I change it so it sorts numerically?
Tap the Sort button, then tap the Numerical tab. When you go back to your collection, the activities will be in your preferred sort order.

What's the highest parachute jump ever made?
On October 14, 2012, Austrian Felix Baumgartner became the first skydiver to go faster than the speed of sound, reaching a maximum velocity of 833.9mph (1,342km/h). He jumped out of a balloon 128,100ft (24 miles; 39km) above New Mexico. He also broke the record for the highest ever freefall. The former record was 102,800 feet (around 20 miles), according to fabulousrocketeers.com.
