2. Now point your camera at other images in the publication. The iD icon now magically appears over activated images. Tap the iD button to unlock related content such as videos, photo galleries, articles and more. It’s that easy!

    I think it's pretty cool actually. I saw some low star ratings below, but I have had nothing but ease of use while working with this app.

    I can't have all of the issues on my phone. After five, the app starts deleting the first one.

    Tap on the icon and it won't open. Emailed the developer but they were of no help.
