Ratings and Reviews
The drawings are very well done making it easy to locate points. It may be nice if you could zoom in, or have a different angle view. Simple Descriptions. Great search function so far. It does not show you the whole meridian as an overview which would be bonus, but not totally necessary. It would also be nice if you could swipe between points instead of having to go back to main list. Overall, it is a great addition to my other reference material. It is quick, easy, simple, and very well done at a very affordable price. Thanks.
I give it another star for customer service. How often do you get the developer responding to requests? Well, this one wrote me back within 24 hours. It doesn’t have a ton of features, but it has several and is exactly what it says it is. Very pleased - a great buy.
I would rate higher
I would rate higher if there was a selection to see all the point locations and names of a given meridian. Seems like some have this but when i look at bladder meridian it only shows the bladder point selcted. Especially with bladder meridian it would be nice to see overview of all for landmarks.
Very elegant app
Pictures and descriptions of points are high quality, and I love how the extraordinary vessels are included in the channel selections. I'm assuming this is a new app, as there are a couple touches that I hope will be added in the updates--e.g. channel pictures of the EVs, and more categories, longer list of extra points. But overall if you're looking for an affordable and comprehensive acu point app, this is well worth it. Plus bonus patient timers! Nice!
