Hello and welcome to Instructables!

In this Instructable, we'll be going over how to create an Instructable through our iOS App. (Now available on iPad!)

Let's get started!

Step 1: Open the App

Open up the application. You will now be viewing the homepage of the app. Click on the icon labeled "share" at the bottom.

You will now see 4 different tabs: New Instructable, Drafts, Published, and Help. We will be clicking on New Instructable.
  • New Instructable - Create a new instructable
  • Drafts - View your unpublished & saved instructables. Remember, you can save your projects straight to your mobile device or the website
  • Published - View your published projects
  • Help - this will guide you step-by-step through the process we will be going over in this Instructable

Step 2: Title & Category

You can now start to add descriptions, steps, and images.

A good Instructable should contain photos that are clear enough for everyone to see, along with thorough and detailed descriptions.

You can also create new steps by dragging images in between step titles.

You can also drag images from the top bar to steps, between steps, or back to the top.

Step 5: Rearranging Steps & Images

Press edit to remove and rearrange steps.

You can drag the step title right to enlarge image viewing area, left to revert. 

You can also swipe back and forth between steps! How cool is that?

Step 6: Publishing Your Instructable

makendo, my first answer, it looks like you don't save your in-progress Instructable. Second, you can download the iPhone version of it in the iPad, Lastly, I know you are not logged in.

A few comments/questions...
- Pictures seem to be missing from most of your steps, and entirely from the last two.
- I can find the (non-universal) iphone app, but not an ipad one (step 1).
- the last few times I've tried the app, it gives me the error "Sorry! No instructables found".
