Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use my iOS app subscription to access BrainPOP websites?
No. In-app subscriptions only have access to the BrainPOP movies and quizzes in the iOS app.
If I have a BrainPOP site subscription, can I log in with my username and password to the apps?
Yes. With a BrainPOP site subscription, you can download the free iOS app and log in using your site credentials.
Does the app track student progress?
You can log in to our apps with your individual student account, but the apps do not track your activity or allow you to view assignments, or submit work or assignments. To access these features on a mobile device, you need to visit our sites on your device’s mobile browser.
Does the app track my quiz scores?
Yes. High quiz scores are stored locally on the device and can be cleared at any time by going to the BrainPOP app settings on your device and choosing Delete High Scores. However, these scores are not tracked as part of the student's individual account.
Can I access games, activities or other BrainPOP features on the iOS app?
The app only provides access to the movies and quizzes. For our full range of offerings, visit BrainPOP.
Why can’t I view or play the movies on the app?
For all BrainPOP apps, make sure that your school’s wireless network has *.brainpop.com whitelisted.
Can I use Family Sharing with the BrainPOP App?
Family Sharing is available for the free versions of our apps. Family Sharing is not compatible with in-app purchases, but you can access your paid subscription on up to three devices using your personal Apple ID. Visit Apple to find what is and what isn't allowed through Family Sharing.
Can I use my app subscription on multiple devices?
Yes. Apple allows up to three devices registered on each Apple ID. You can restore each device to the Apple ID you used to purchase your app subscription. Open the app and tap Log In in the bottom right corner. Then, tap Restore In-App Purchase. This will allow you to restore your Apple ID and password and reactivate your account.
Why is there no sound when the movie plays?
- Make sure the screen rotate lock switch on the side is not engaged. This can act as a mute button for some apps.
- Make sure the mute icon (a bell with a line through it) is not highlighted white. You can check this by swiping up from the bottom of the home screen to bring up Apple task bar.
- Make sure your volume is turned up.
- Double tap the home button to bring up the task bar. Swipe to the right to see a speaker icon at the far left. Tap the speaker icon to unmute system sounds.
If you are using iOS 7 on your device, the sound may be off due to an issue with iOS 7’s AssistiveTouch. Try this solution:
- Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch.
- Turn ON AssistiveTouch – an icon will appear on the screen.
- Tap the icon.
- Tap Device.
- Tap Unmute.
- Click anywhere on the screen to exit out of AssistiveTouch menu.
- Turn OFF AssistiveTouch.
If you’re still having trouble, try uninstalling the app, rebooting your device, and re-installing the app.
