HOW IT WORKS
1. Open the app.
2. Locate the SELF PLUS icon to identify the "live" pages in the issue.
3. Hold your device so the page fills most of the viewfinder; the related video or slide show will launch automatically.
4. Once the experience has begun, you can move your device around and continue to watch; you do not need to hover over the page.
5. Double-tap to exit and return to a navigation screen.
The idea behind this is the same as the tag readers. Problem is, this does not work. Even with a wi-fi connection (recommended), the app simply recognizes the page and "loads" forever. I will say that it worked once. Unfortunately, it began "loading" again half way through the content. Locking rotation, keeping both the iPad and magazine resting on stable surfaces, nothing helps this flawed application. I recommend waiting until a few updates have passed before bothering. Should have waited to release until it actually functioned as intended, Self. Dropped the ball there...
I found it extremely helpful to be able to watch the video of Tracy Anderson's broom stick workout(April issue). The only page the app did not work on was page 12. If you don't have a steady hand this app may not work for you.
Everything loaded fine but shortly thereafter an ad appeared. As soon as I clicked on the "x" to close the ad the information I loaded went away and I was brought back to the camera. Judging from what I could see, there is no way to save or bookmark the information which makes it relatively pointless unless you are ready to use it right at that moment.
