Available on the App

Highlights: Start with a 'deep hold' on the word you would like to start the highlight with. Drag until you want the highlight to finish. A colour palette will pop-up. To remove the highlight, click on it and then the colour palette will appear again. Press the X on the left.

It's not yet possible to create annotations on the app but this is something we are working on! Keep an eye on our socials if you would like to be kept updated on this.

Bookmarks: Click on the bookmark icon at the top of the page.

💡 Note: it is not currently possible to delete bookmarks via the app.
