What's New in Version 1.3
Self-Discovery at It's Finest!
For years I've been dreaming about a system that could do what this App does beautifully! Thank you! Sometimes your so close to something that you can't step back and see it from a different perspective. That is what this App allows you to do...rediscover yourself inside out. Well guided, simple, to-the-point with additional helpful info along the way. Outputs to a simple picture or list for you to become self aware and draw from the data to move yourself forward.
Having major problems utilizing this app
I was thrilled to see this as an app, but I can't use it! First: it doesn't turn sideways, which is how I use my iPad with my keyboard. So, I tried using it with the iPad keyboard, but when I select a typing field, the keyboard does not pop up! I'm really frustrated, because I *want* to use this, and it looks great, but technically it needs work, and I can't find a technical "help/contact" link to get help.
If any of you have ideas, I would appreciate your help. If it's an error from *my* end, I'll happily change the rating, because I love this book/app otherwise.
This will get you thinking
A great app. While not 100% intuitive it helps you define who you are. Make sure you read the exercises entirely. The 2014 book itself is only $10 cheaper than the print edition and as I recall only recently available online.
