First News+ is our new augmented reality app. You can use it wherever you see the FN+ icon in your copy of First News. Simply hover over the picture with your mobile device and watch the extra content come to life, whether it's a video, picture gallery or something else.
These handy tips will help you get the most from First News + :
. When you use the app for the first time it may take a few seconds to load.
. When you see the FN+ sign, hover and zoom in on the photo so it fills the screen.
. Make sure your device is focused on the whole image. On some Android devices you may need to tap the screen to focus.
. The app will recognise the image and will start to load. If it doesn’t, slowly move your device backwards and forwards until it recognises the image and starts to load the extra content.
. When a video or slideshow starts to play, it will become full screen on your device and you can move it away from the paper to view.
. To stop playing the video/photo gallery, double tap the screen to return to camera mode.
. When some content has finished it may take you to a website related to that content. To return to the app, just push the back button on your device.
. Most interactive content has sound, so make sure you have your volume turned up.
