I'm not sure why so many people seem to be having trouble w/the app. I've been using for over a month and no issues connecting via chat or the contents. The coaches are quick to respond and super helpful. The coaching I've received have been professional, thought provoking, and challenging to help me grow personally and professionally. There are a mix of content for visual and auditory learners. Lessons are brief, yet good.I'd recommend using voice to text than trying to type on phone keyboard.

Not really useful. Seems like if you don't have any problems then that's fine but as soon as you need help with anything you have to schedule things out days ahead of time and then the coaches don't really wanna message you or anything. I've scheduled maybe one session successfully and we talked about work stuff, and it was mainly all very "cookie cutter" type advice. (Make a pros cons list, try grounding exercises) typically not advice I schedule things days in advance for.

Feedback on the app and the service. App: low quality and not user friendly. Typing is on the phone, the slowest way to communicate. Given the appt is always timeboxed, this wastes a lot of time, compared to typing on a laptop/PC. The very serious connectivity issue. I have no connectivit issue with all the other apps/games on my phone and during a 30mins chatting sessin, I was disconnected and stuck in "connecting" for over 10mins, not exaggerating.
