New version loads really slow and requires internet for most applications. Liked the previous version better. New version gets hung up on the opening logo and takes over a minute before you can access any program. It use to be a simple mood & health tracker with relaxation exercises. They've added more programs, but it's worthless if you can't access them. (Their response below didn't address my initial complaint of it loading slow so I've expanded my review to be more specific.)
One thing I just noticed is that the volume of the speaker in Guided Paths are not constant. There are times that some words spoken are intelligible because the volume of the speaker suddenly drops.
I've downloaded a few of these type of apps and this one is the only one I'm actually going to keep. There is a lot to it while being simple at the same time. I've shared it in a few of my support groups now.
Should I? Yes, it's worth your health get started.
Very helpful and easy. I can use this discretely and monitor my mood.
