Announcing: Our New App for iOS

As you know, we are always working to improve the Sparkle experience. This new app is completely redesigned from the ground up, providing an experience you'll recognize from our website.

Be sure to update ASAP so you can continue to enjoy your Sparkle Stories!

Major changes from the old app:

  • A "docked" story player. You can now play a story while navigating the app, and even other apps!
  • An option for a full screen player. Swipe right and left to go to the previous and next stories. Swipe down to hide the player and go back.
  • Offline listening is now faster and easier.
  • Remembers your place in each story.
  • Dedicated page per story, with easy access to related stories. Plus, you'll have the story descriptions at your fingertips.
  • Dedicated collection page. Easily find all the stories in a collection.
  • Bottom tab bar for easier navigation.
  • Faster search.

We can't wait for you to try it!

How to Update

  • Open the iTunes App Store on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Tap the "Updates" icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  • Scroll and find the Sparkle App icon. And tap "Update" and you'll be all set!
