What I had hoped would be (as advertised) an immersive world of engaging stories turned out to be a poorly coordinated blend of banal new age music, uninteresting abstract images, and a series of amateur and mediocre short stories. To make matters worse, actually trying to "immerse" oneself in these stories (combining the art & music with the reading) is next to impossible, since the controls to browse through the pages are awkward and clumsy, and often useless if the app becomes stalled. While simply trying to read one page after another, I somehow got detoured and the app forced me to listen to a song or view a gallery of the art. Getting back to the story wasn't helpful, because I had no way of marking the page from which I could resume reading.
