graphic of What are Featured Stories?

Featured stories are favourited stories

Featured stories appear as the larger of the images at the top of the main Folktells screen and are randomly selected only from the Folktells stories that are marked as favourites in the story selector. Continually updating the stories that are featured grabs the attention of the people nearby and invited taps and engagement with the content.

Two stories are featured at any one time and the feature area is refreshed every 3 minutes so that different stories get rotated in and out. The amount of time between rotations can be changed in the Settings.
