quick start

the document list view

When you start iSilo™ for the first time, you start in iSilo™'s
document list view. The document list view initially shows the Device view, one of five possible views of documents you have installed on your device. The Device view allows you to easily navigate to any application accessible folder on your device.

Initially, the views show only files with extensions of either .pdb or .prc. Generally files in iSilo™ format have the extension .pdb, though not all files with the extension .pdb are necessarily in iSilo™ format.

Tap on a folder entry to enter the corresponding folder. To return to the previous containing directory or folder, swipe from right to left in the gesture area below the screen.

To open a document for viewing, tap on the document's file name. When you open a document for viewing, iSilo™ transfers you to the read view.

In addition to being able to open documents for viewing, some other things you can do in the document list view include categorizing, deleting, and renaming files. This additional functionality is available in a context menu that appears when you touch and hold down on a file name for at least a second.

For more information about the document list view, see document list view. For more information about the document types iSilo™ recognizes, see document types.

the read view

The read view presents the content of the document for viewing. When you view a given document for the first time, you start at the beginning of the document. A document may consist of one or more pages and the content of each page may either fit entirely within the bounds of the screen or if it does not, you can scroll through the page.

To scroll the content, hold your finger on the screen and drag in the direction you want to scroll.

If there are links on the screen, you can tap a link to jump to the target of the link.

iSilo™ actually provides a number of configurable options for scrolling. See navigation for more on navigating through a document, including information on all the different ways of scrolling and jumping to different parts of a document.
