Needs to Play Nice with Pocket Yoga
I am a huge fan of Pocket Yoga and have been using it for some time. I love the idea that you acquire Karma points from completing a certain amount (15 minutes) of practice. As both Pocket Yoga and Pocket Yoga - Practice Builder are made by the same company (and sold as complimentary apps), I intuited that they would in some way or another compliment one another. Or at least to interact in any way whatsoever.
I can't send my built practices to Pocket Yoga to use there. And I don't acquire any Karma from completing practices which I have created. I feel like this is an oversight.
I should be able to create a practice in Builder and send that to Pocket Yoga to add to my repot pure of practices, thereby allowing me to gain karma. If I'm just missing something and someone corrects me I will change this to five starts immediately. I also think that after spending $13 to get both apps that I should get a little free Karma.
As others have pointed out, there is inconsistency in the voicing of the name of poses. Sometimes there is just a bell. Sometimes there isn't. There needs to be a setting allowing users to decide if each pose will be named, named and described, intoned, or nothing. Finally, I would pay another two bucks to get some extra voice over for common transitions between poses to make the created practices feel more natural.
Great program with a few issues
Pocket Yoga Builder has a good library of poses and allows adding your own. The program allows creating loops for repetitive sequences such as Sun Salutations and allows setting time to hold poses specified as number of breathes or seconds.
One distracting problem is not all poses has spoken names, such as Supine Pigeon, and a bell tone rings. I prefer to listen to instructions, wihout looking at my display during my practice, but th bell requires ckecking the screen to see the pose.
Another annoying issue occurs in a loop where all poses have bells, such as in a loop with Supine Pigeon left and right, where the program skips a bell and you get out of sequence. The solution is to add a Corpse Pose, which has a spoken name, to the loop.
Apps should be able to share practices
I love the features of each individual app, however as companion apps they should work with one another. I'd like to be able to edit or tweak the default practices in the main app and I'd like to use the practices I've built in the practice builder in the main app. The main app connects to Apple Health but the practice builder does not, so practices I've built myself are not tracked in Apple Health when I use them. I also can't earn "karma" points when using my own practices. This seems counterintuitive when you've built these as companion apps and you sell them in a bundle.
