Why is iVox not working?

It could be that you do not have a compatible smartphone. All smart phones and tablet devices should work, but older models may not have the processing speed capable of supporting the animation.

For the tilt to work (moving the animation up or down), your device must have a gyroscope sensor. Most devices will have gyroscope sensors but certain phones and tablets may not have this option.

Check your library credentials to ensure your account information is correct.
