NOTE: [as of April 27th 2020]
Story Mode requires BOTH updating the mobile app to the 1.7 version and above AND an updated version of your particular audiobook.
* The iOS version is available for download from the App Store
* The Android version is in beta and will be released in the coming weeks
* The À Moi Paris Method - Beginner audiobooks have been updated to support Story Mode (the rest will be progressively added over the coming weeks/months)
What is Story Mode
Based on feedback from our users, we introduced the "Story Mode" feature in the 1.7 version of the iOS and Android apps. It allows you to listen continuously to just the story/dialog chapters without having the audio playback 'interrupted' by other method chapters.
Lots of you listen to the novel part of our audiobooks as you fall asleep or while running/exercising/driving and don't want to manually have to skip around the non-story chapters.
How to Enable Story Mode
1. When your audiobook is open, tap on the Table of Content icon
2. If the audiobook you are using has Story Mode enabled then when you bring up the Table of Content, you will see two additional options at the top: "Everything" and "Story Only"
3. By tapping on "Story Only", the Table of Content will only show the story chapters and continuous playback will go from one story chapter to the other skipping any study guide, Q&A or other non-story chapters.
Skipping next or previous will also just skip between the different chapters of the story.
How do I know I'm in Story Mode?
There is a permanent indicator at the top of the transcript that lets you know you are in Story Mode.
How to disable Story Mode
Reverse the steps above:
- Tap on the Table of Content icon
- Tap on "Everything" to reveal the full audiobook including the study guides and other method chapters.
What French Today Audiobooks Have Story Mode Enabled
As of April 27th 2020, the following audiobooks are "Story Mode" enabled:
- À Moi Paris First Encounter (free audiobook)
- À Moi Paris Method - Beginner (L1 and L2)
Note: we are working on adding story mode to the rest of the À Moi Paris Method as well as Une Semaine A Paris, Une Semaine A Paimpol and Essential French Dialogs. Please stay tuned...
If you have the 1.7 and above version of the app and are not seeing Story Mode in the audiobooks above, you will have to force and audiobook update by manually deleting the audiobook and then re-downloading it (like you did when you first downloaded it).
