Not great keep kicking me off doesn't load videos. Very slow but the contents us helpful so it's a shame the app isn't good. So there are 23 pages but you have to flick through all of them by hand every time you want a page and if it goes off you have to start all over again that's very frustrating and nit helpful when your desperately needing the help Doesn't anyone review this app it doesn't let you download the files what is the point of this app very cross you don't keep it working

Apologies you had a bad experience with the App. This issue was related to an old version of the app. An android update changed how files were stored. The latest version was uploaded on July 6th 2021 to resolve this issue. Thanks for your feedback on the usability, we will take this to the design group to look at better / easier navigation.

If I could have given it zero stars I would. I don't see how this would be useful to most people it's being recommended too. Maybe if you've never seen a doctor about your problem or have no understanding... but it's all very basic and condescending. Plus the app doesn't load the leaflets half the time. Absolutely a waste of time.

Apologies that you found the booklet unhelpful. While we have many positive reviews the booklet cannot meet everyone's needs. The guides are meant as an introduction to self help techniques, and not a replacement for professional help. The latest version of the App was published on July 6th 2021 to resolve the loading issue after an Android update.

To get working on Android you have to go into your settings and in the Self Help App settings make sure storage is on which it isn't by default when you install it. Needs a pdf reader and works fine with Adobe Acrobat.
