Here are a few simple tips to help you enjoy the new KENS 5 apps for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry:

Tip 1: Update your phone's software first.

Be sure that you have recently connected your phone to your computer to get the latest updated 'operating software' for your phone. iPhone users, for example, won't be allowed to download the KENS 5 iPhone app until they've updated their iPhone operating software, which is needed to take full advantage of the features in the new KENS 5 app.

Tip 2: When it comes to smart phones, age matters.

The new KENS 5 app is optimized for the latest smartphones and those to come. For example, the iPhone app is very fast on the iPhone 4 whereas it's slightly slower on the older iPhone 3GS. Likewise, there are many 'flavors' of Android phones. The app works best on the newest phones. Owners of older Android phones may experience page freezing and loading issues.

Tip 3: The new mobile navigation scrolls to the left and right.

Users of our previous app are used to tapping on content. We have greatly expanded the amount of content on the new KENS 5 app and added two levels of navigation to the top of the app. All you need to do to scan our categories of content is flick the top two rows of topics either left or right.

Tip 4: Still have questions or comments? Let us help!
