8) Q: The app continues to crash, what do I do?

A: Popar apps take a lot of your devices energy to run properly. When there are a lot of other apps open that are running in the background, it has a tendency to slow down your device similar to that of a computer that has a lot of programs open at the same time. Please shut down all the apps you have running completely (not just going back to the home screen), and then restart the Popar app and follow the on screen tutorials.


9) Q: Do I need the internet to use a Popar app?

A: You only need the internet for the initial download of any Popar app that is over 50 MB (any app download over 50 MB requires the internet to download). After the Popar app is downloaded, you no longer need the internet.

11) Q: How come Popar apps do not work on my Apple iTouch?

12) Q: Do the Popar products work with the Kindle or the Nook?

15) Q: How come when I am in Virtual Reality (VR) mode and I move my device, the virtual scene on my device does not move like it says it’s supposed to?

A: This is because you do not have an gyroscope/accelerometer inside your device that is required for this function to work, or you have engaged the joystick which will turn off the functionality of your gyroscope/accelerometer. There is a joystick that is at the bottom left of your screen that can be used as a substitute if your device does not have an gyroscope/accelerometer, or you just do not feel like moving your device around.


16) Q: Why can I not see the entire Augmented Reality (AR) animation in my Popar book?

A: The reason is probably because you are too close to the product with your device. If you back away from the product a little bit, it will become more immersive and you will be able to see the entire 3D animation. The Augmented Reality (AR) tracking if fairly robust so you can move away and around the product to get a better look at different angles.


17) Q: Will the “Popar Interactive Puzzle” app work if I do not complete my puzzle all the way?

A: Yes it may work if enough of the puzzle is built, but we highly suggest that you build the whole puzzle so the product can work as effectively as it was designed.


18) Q: What is the “Popar Viewer” app?

A: The “Popar Viewer” app is merely a demo app that will work with a Popar catalog, or your can even create your own Augmented Reality (AR) tracker.

A: Yes they can. As long as each user has a serial code to enter into the app, multiple users can be using a Popar product simultaneously.

A: Yes, some Popar products have been converted into other languages. You can simply choose a different language by tapping the “Languages” button, and then selecting the language you wish the app to be displayed in.
