How To Guide

Using the Apple Watch

Digital Copel v2.0.2 and above supports Apple Watch, so if you have an iPhone you can now connect your watch to Digital Copel. With the watch app you can see how many lessons were played and for how long during the last session, and the total number of lessons completed per age group. There is a remote control feature to go to the previous and next lessons and also return to the home screen. You can also toggle the alarm/take-a-rest screen remotely while your child plays the app and you control their playtime from your wrist.

Installing the Digital Copel Watch App:

1. Open Digital Copel on your iPhone, goto the Parents Area, click the Menu and goto Settings.

2. Enable "Apple Watch Support" so you see a black circle in the toggle.

How to use the Copel Canvas

Copel Canvas is your child’s very own creative space. Here they can place decoration items in whichever arrangement they like. Whenever you finish a lesson you will get Peru Points that you can trade in for decoration items. Use them to build your own world on the Copel Canvas.

1. Tap the canvas button in the middle of the main screen.

2. In order to save any progress and use the canvas to its fullest extent you have to register a user account from the parents menu. If you are not logged in you can only experiment a bit, placing a few items onto the canvas, nothing more. 3. This is your canvas. Press the top right button to access your collection.

4. In the collection you can see all decoration items you have collected and which are still available, and your amount of Peru Points. The "Lucky Draw!" button on top will trade 6 points for a random item. Items have different rarities, influencing the chance of finding them. Those are shown by the colour and amount of stars in the items' icons.

5. When you touch any item in the collection you can either select “Place” to place it on your canvas, or “Info” to open up a detailed information window. The number displays like “1/3” mean you have collected 3 of that item, one of them currently being in your collection, while the other two are placed on your canvas.

6. In the detail window you can see information about the chosen item. You can also sell items you have collected in order to gain some Peru Points, or buy items for points if you are looking for something specific.

7. Items placed on your canvas can be dragged around. Touch any item to move it to the foreground. Build your own city with the pieces however you like!

8. To return an item to your collection, drag it back onto the backpack icon in the top right corner.
