What We Mean Support

This is the support page for What We Mean.  If you’re having problems running What We Mean on your device or have general questions, you may be able to find the answers below.  If you’re experiencing an issue that is not addressed, please leave a comment in the section under the post.

What devices run What We Mean?

Currently What We Mean only runs on Apple devices.  It runs best on the iPad 3 Retina and the iPad 2, but it works perfectly fine on iPhone 4s and later.  Please keep in mind that  What We Mean is optimized for iPads.

What We Mean runs slow on my device, what gives?

What We Mean is not your typical ebook.  Very large and beautiful images overlap each other to give What We Mean its unique look and feel.  To optimize your device for What We Mean, try closing all the other open apps on your device.  This will free up memory and speed up What We Mean.

Why can’t I zoom in on a composition I am creating?

The blackout section of What We Mean works by creating multiple images, your black outs, on top of each other.  At the moment, zoom works by scaling the image on the canvas, which throws all your blackouts out of whack.  This is why there is no zoom at the moment.

I want to publish my blackouts, is there a way to do this?

There are plenty of self-publishing sites online.  Check’em out and publish you’re own work, ya poet!

    Hi. I’ve recently downloaded What We Mean and find the format interesting. However, I don’t really get the purpose of the Create section. I appear to able to upload existing photos, or take new ones with the camera. I can also draw on them. Hmm, I can do this with any drawing app on the iPad, but better. On top of this, I keep getting a ‘Director Class – Error’ message when using the Create section. This happens on both ipad2 and ipad3. Has anyone else had this problem? I can send you an image of the error screen if that helps.

      Hi Jim,

      Thanks for reporting the error. Sometimes this error happens if the app doesn’t successfully save the image you’ve created. Are you able to reload the ‘create’ section after seeing this error or does the app freeze? I hope to have this fixed in the new version uploaded mid-February. Realize that the ‘create’ section is part of a larger app and not the app in its entirety. The idea behind the ‘create’ section of What We Mean is to give users, if they’re inspired by the blackout format, a chance to create their own poems. What We Mean is a poetry app first, and a tool for creation second. Currently, in this version, users cannot share their creations, but I am working on remedying that for the next release. This is my first attempt at making an application and I appreciate your feedback. I’ll try harder to create a more enjoyable experience as I learn more on my road to becoming a better programmer, designer, and writer. Again, I would like to thank you for visiting the site and writing about the error. I didn’t know people were still experiencing this problem.
