How do I log in to the smART sketcher App?

The most important step in logging in to the smART sketcher App is making sure you’re in the vicinity of your smART sketcher Projector. Once you’ve registered, the App should automatically connect.
If it doesn’t connect, or sends you to the online smART sketcher store, it probably means you’re too far away from your Projector or the Bluetooth on your device isn’t connected.
If you’re still having trouble, please contact us at info@smartsketcher.com

How do I take a picture using the mobile App?

With smART sketcher, you can draw anything you can see. Just take a picture and begin!

1.  Make sure your smART sketcher Projector is connected to the App using Bluetooth.  (See instructions on how to connect the App for further details.)

2. On the main screen, click the Camera icon to launch the camera preview screen.

3. Take a picture using your in-app camera. It will appear on your screen.

4. Choose one of the three filters at the bottom of the screen.  Adjust the brightness by swiping the slider.

5. Press the checkmark to transfer the image to the smART sketcher Projector.

6. Get Sketching!

How do I sketch a picture from my photo library?

With smART sketcher, you can sketch any picture you’ve saved on your smart device!

1. Make sure your smART sketcher Projector is connected to the App using Bluetooth.  (See instructions on how to connect the App for further details.)

2. Enable access to your photo library by going to “Settings” at the top of your screen.  An adult may need to help with this step.

3. Go back to the main screen, click the Camera icon and then click the photo on the bottom left. (It’s probably the last photo you took with your device.) That will give you access to your photo library.

4. Choose a picture from your library.  It will appear on your screen.

5. Select one of the three filters at the bottom of the screen.  Adjust the brightness by swiping the slider.

6. Press the checkmark to transfer the image to the smART sketcher Projector.

7. Get Sketching!

My Projector is on, but I can't see an image.

Check your SD card.

If the SD card isn’t inserted properly, you won’t see an image. Make sure the flat side of the card faces outward and the card is fully inserted. Turn the Projector off and then on again and see if that helps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another problem could be that you’re using an SD card that has already been coded to another smART sketcher Projector. Each SD card can only be used on one Projector.

My SD Card isn't working. What should I do?

There could be one of several solutions.

The SD might not be inserted correctly. Make sure the flat side of the card faces outward. Wiggle it to make sure it’s all the way in.

Each SD card only works with a single smART sketcher Projector. Once it’s programmed into one Projector, you can’t move it to another. If you have more than one Projector, make sure you’re using the SD in the correct device. If you see the below “Activation Err” message, it means the SD card was already programmed into another Projector.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If neither of these solutions work, email support@flycatcherapps.com for a replacement SD card! In the meantime, you can still use the smART sketcher app to draw.

What kind of power does smART sketcher Projector need?

The Projector operates using either an AC adaptor or 4 D batteries.

Plug the adapter into the back of the projector, or insert 4 x D batteries in the compartment at the bottom.
