How To Play iStory Games
When you want to play the games, go to the notes folder on your iPod, find the story title, open it and click on a title. There are currently 48 games or quizzes available for free. I put all of them on my iPod, but remember there is a 1,000 note limit! Also, sometimes it takes a while to load all of the notes. If you make a bad choice when playing a game, just hit the menu button to go back. Have fun and good luck!
