If you cannot hear the Audio Commentary follow these steps.
Under Settings/Sounds off of the home screen make sure the volume is turned all the way up. Secondly when the App is running make sure the mute button is turned off and using the volume buttons on the side of the phone make sure this is also turned up. This problem is easily fixed. Please if you have any questions or concerns feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
*iTouch users: If you can hear background music but the audio commentary will not play go to Settings -> General -> Sounds -> Sound Effects and select "BOTH"
iTouch users must use headphones in order to hear commentary.
What's New in Version 4.3
Fixed the bug where the audio jumps to 100 percent after each new pose.
Our apologies to everyone.
Would have given more stars but...
Mr. Harris, It seems quite clear that this app was rushed out the door without sufficient testing. It is easy to be cynical about developers' motive$ in the app market when I see things like this. I realize the window to make money on apps is short but there is not excuse for the flaws still present even in version 4.3. If anyone there has attempted to create a custom session they would see that not only are the 'Tree' and 'Ext. Tree' icons switched but the 'Tree' pose only does one side. Also, it should be possible to go from, for example, 'Pigeon R' to Pigeon II R' rather than R,L-R,L. This applies to all poses with variations and Right and Left sides. It would be nice if the user could set times for poses and a bell(?) sounded at the end of the session so I don't have a nap after the corpse pose. I do like the app very much and I can work around these issues but it really disrupts the flow to have to deal with programming errors. I find the instructor's voice very pleasant and despite my initial hesitations the silhouettes were quite sufficient along with the very clear commentary. I really like the app and it's a bargain @ 99cents but I find the lazy errors to be obnoxious. I will probably buy RELAX as well. I hope it doesn't suffer from the same problems.
Can't wait to STRETCH!
Was in need of some stretching advice. At .99 cents, I'm really pleased with what's packaged into this app.
Now, I just need to learn and get comfortable with the moves...
Don't waste your time
While it's great to be able to custom make your own sequence the poses are held for to long or to short and you can't custom make it as a flow right side to left. It's very choppy. Pocket yoga is a wayyyyy better app. If you are looking for instructional yoga.
