UPDATE: the issue has been fixed, same day! Thank you so much! Leaving most of original review for posterity below as space allows. 4 stars now, as I've not used the app very long, but this is promising! :) ---- I was able to use this app yesterday, + signed up for free trial. However, today: "File is corrupted or missing" errors. I can't play any audios from challenges or daily dares. I've reinstalled the app, enabled storage permissions, but no dice. Is it just me, or is this a server problem?

This app has helped me immensely, so I won't give it less than five stars, but I do have a suggestion - make the audios for the seven day challenges open in a player like the other audios. It's impossible to start over or go back a few seconds if you were interrupted, you have to finish the entire recording and then start it over to see what you missed. Even closing and reopening the app doesn't reset you to the beginning of the audio.

Thank you for your kind feedback, Melissa! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, we will look into this further. As a temporary solution, you can download the challenge audios and play it by going to your Profile > Challenges (under My Downloads). This will give you the option to play the audio through our player. Hope this helps!

Rating it low for now with the hope it will get fixed... I like this app a lot, I think the challenges and helpful activities it has are really good for helping me with my anxiety, but it takes forever to load. It will be fine for maybe 1 or 2 audios, and then all of a sudden it shows the spinning wheel of death and no matter how many times I reopen the app, it stays the same. It also keeps showing me an "unlock" button, but then when I click on it, it will say "you're already subscribed".

Hi Abigail, we were having an issue back in June with the app but have since fixed that bug. It would be great if you could take a look at the app again and let us know how you get on here!
