Instructions for Android

Important note. There has recently been a problem with Samsung S8 and S9 phones concerning audio volume of the recordings. If you have one of these phones then on the record screen menu please turn on ‘Old format audio‘.

Thank you for downloading the Android version of LineLearner, I hope that you find it useful in learning your lines.

Below are instructions on the different functionality in LineLearner, but for a quick understanding of how to use it look at the How to learn lines with LineLearner page

LineLearner contains many different screens, and they will be discussed in the order that you would normally use them.

Tip: When you have finished recording a script, export it so you have a copy in case anything happens to your phone.

General info

At the top of the screen you now have a bar that gives you information about the script as can be seen below.

When you first open the app you will see the following menu bar on the Script tab.

This gives you the name of the current script (in this case First Script).  The horizontal line on the right is where the menu button is when there is a menu. In this case there is no menu on this page.

When you first go to a screen with a menu the button will appear as follows.

The three lines means that when you press there you will see the menu appear. The arrow on the left takes you back up the screen tree. You will see it when you navigate down from the scripts screen.

When you press the menu button the menu will show. The menu is different on each page, and so it is important to check out each menu so you know where all the options are. To help you with this the menu will be yellow until you have seen it for the first time, after which it will turn grey as shown here.

When you open a menu it will drop down from the top of the screen and appear as follows.  This is the menu from the Script page.

As you can see here you have the option to split the script by filming days as well as by Scene. If you enable this at the top of the screen you will also see the current day as well as the current script as shown here.

The main menu appears when you swipe from off the left of the screen towards the centre.  This will give you access to the following screens.

  • Scripts – and all the screens below that
  • Record
  • Playback
  • Help
  • Share

For convenience the first three screens can also be accessed via the buttons at the top of each screen.

This will allow you to navigate between the main sections of the app which are as follows.
