We are excited to announce that you can now download the Stile iPad App on the App Store!
"But Stile already works on Safari on my iPad" I hear your ask. That's true, of course, but the iPad app has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it a must-have for iPad schools. Here's why in a nutshell:
- It delivers a cleaner, smoother classroom experience
- It allows teachers to leave audio feedback on iPads
- It allows for easier file sharing with other apps
A better workflow
Working in the app is a cleaner, distractionless experience because your students aren't working in the same browser that they use for everything else. It also remembers your login details, which is especially useful for younger primary school kids who don't have school-provided email addresses. Saved logins also simply speed up the Stile experience. Open the app and you're ready to go—no ums and ahs!
Unfortunately, Safari doesn't allow you to record audio feedback on iPads. However, in the Stile app you can! This means that teachers can only take advantage of our fantastic new audio feedback capability on iPads if they use the app.
Bring in files from other apps
With a recent iPad software update (iOS 8 and later) came the ability for apps to share files with each other. Students can now upload files from other apps to, which you can then upload to Stile without having to email them—nice!
