Downloading the App
With the Synap app, you can access your revision content and take your personalised learning quizzes on the go!
Once you have downloaded the app, you will need to visit the portal you would like to access on a desktop to get your QR code. Log in and click on your profile picture in the bottom left-hand corner. A menu should appear where you can select 'Mobile app'.
From here, you should see a screen where you can download the app and get your login code for the mobile app.
Select 'Get login code' to get your own personal QR code to log in to the app.
Once you have your QR code, head back over to your mobile device and open the Synap app. Select 'QR login'. You may get a message asking whether Synap can access your camera. Accept this and proceed to scan the QR code displayed on the desktop with your mobile phone. You will then be able to access your revision content, collections and see your current progress.
Do I need to log in to a desktop portal every time I want to use the app?
No - if you stay logged into your mobile app you will not need to log in via desktop first. The only time you will need to do this is the first time you log in and if you have previously logged out of the app.
If you know you won't have access to a desktop while on the go, stay logged in to the app to ensure you can access your content whenever and wherever you need.
