Just... okay.

As far as mudras apps go, this one is decent as it has a wide selection. The pictures are clear and the descriptions are helpful. If the picture is vague, I can also follow the instructions to get the desired hand position. Neat.

Which leads me into my biggest issue with this app: there is no search feature. If you have a headache and you need the specific mudras for it, get ready partner because you've got to go through the whole list to find one that will help you. One at a time, to boot.

I also decided to try the warm-up feature that it boasts of on its app page. I tried it two times. The first time my heart jumped out of my chest with how loud the beginning gong was and I closed the app. The second time I made it past the first gong and got to the second, louder gong and quit it. Haven't played with it since. Oh yeah, and the font of this warm-up timer is white against a picture of a mountain. I'll let you imagine how hard that is to read.

The developer's in-app email address also doesn't work (which is partly why I'm here) which makes direct contact about issues very difficult.

Again, I like the app. It's the best one out there in the Apple App Store right now, but it's still got a ways to go to be considered "polished enough" for the $6 it's asking for. :/

There is a problem with this ap. It's stuck on a page with a nasty sound going off every five seconds, with no way to leave that page. Tapping on the screen, or on anything visible in the screen, sliding on the screen, and even closing the application do not have any effect.
