What Is Handoff?

One of the key features of Continuity across Apple devices is Handoff. It also allows Manga Rock to send its app's data seamlessly between devices so you can "pick up where you left off".


Set up both of your devices correctly to support Handoff

Step 1: Make sure both devices running iOS 9.0 or above

Step 2: Connect 2 devices to the same WiFi network

Step 3: Login to iCloud in both devices using the same account

Step 4: Turn on Bluetooth 

Enable Handoff on your iOS devices

Step 1: Go to your devices Settings > General > Handoff

Step 2: Switch ON the Handoff slider

Remember that WiFi and Bluetooth must be turned on for both of your iOS devices.

Use Handoff for Manga Rock 

Step 1: Open Manga Rock in device 1 (i.e. your iPhone).

Step 2: Open any manga to read in your iPhone.

Step 3: In your device 2 (i.e. your iPad), you should see a small Manga Rock icon in the lower left corner of your iPad's lock screen.

Step 4: Swipe up on this icon to unlock your iPad and automatically be brought to Manga Rock and open the exact same page you're reading on your iPhone.

Note: Another way to activate Handoff is multitasking view on your iOS device. Simply double tap on the Home button and swipe all the way to the left. A screen should appear with your most recent active Handoff-enabled application, aka. Manga Rock.
