What's New in Version 2.2
misc bug fixes
Expensive App must become iPhone-useable + more routines!
Review update (Dec. 2012):
It's been a year since the Developer's last App update and I no longer have much hope that constructive criticism like what I originally offered is being considered. Accordingly, I am subtracting another star. I'll check again in 2013 to see if what could be a five star app is just another orphan apparently abandoned by its Developer after the cash flow slows down...I hope I'm wrong.
Original review (April 2012):
This costly app has great potential but must be made to run on both the iPhone and iPad to be optimal. Plus, it needs more routines. I'd need to use it on my phone at the gym: Don't want to lug my iPad to the fitness center where I exercise. Please do this, plus expand the number of exercises, e.g., hand exercises, etc., and it will become a five star app, in spite of the high price. Looking for Continuous Improvement: Good Luck!
Very,very limited in number, range and scope of exercises. I was very disappointed and would not purchase in this present form.
