How do I add a grid set?

When you start Grid for iPad for the first time, or want to add more content to your Grid Explorer, tap the + icon in the top right corner.

This will open the Add grid set window, where you will find ready made grid sets arranged by category and options to create new grid sets.

Choose the category you want to add a grid set from then browse to find the grid set you are looking for.

Finally tap Add to download the grid set to your Grid Explorer.
