Improvement in just two weeks!

I just gave a presentation to a group in a large conference room. For the first time ever, I felt like I had plenty of breath and I could reach the back row without straining my voice. I didn’t have to keep clearing my throat. That tremor in your voice when you are nervous? NOT a problem!
The exercises seem so simple but they really worked for me. In the past I always thought that I don’t sound as confident as I feel and this app has helped me turn that around.
Contrast this with the speech coach who wanted $8000 for six months of online coaching. I feel that this app is a fantastic deal!
A big thank you to the developers.

I do love the app itself but...

I wanted to train my voice to be deeper and more resonating so I’ve been using this app as a part of my morning routine. I do love the contents and could tell the difference almost immediately, as I got more conscious of the impact my body and mind can have on my voice. I also like how the app eases you into various techniques.

That said, the app needs to be updated more often. Due to some bugs, it keeps shutting down as soon as I click on the icon. There’s a bit of buffering for, like 3 seconds, and then it shuts down. This has happened before and also this last 4,5 days. I also don’t know why I get logged out so often as well as the routine I choose (e.g. “speaking in front of a group” or “articulation”) doesn’t come up as the very first thing on top. Last time I was on the app, the category I had downloaded didn’t play Day 2 for some reason and I was stuck in Day, even though I already finished that routine twice.

Given that it’s a training app that requires one patience and consistency to keep up, it’s so frustrating that technical glitches like these occur this often and in so many different ways to sabotage my desire to develop a good habit. Plus, I have a 6-month deal and it feels like I’m not getting the most out of what I paid for. I really hope they’re able to fix these issues so that it can become the greatest app that it truly deserves to be.

Thanks so much for your review. You’re completely right, the app needs to updated, and it will be shortly. Please email us at astoundthem@gmail.com and we’ll make up for the experience you’ve had. You should be getting out of the subscription what you expected. Only then can you build a healthy habit. Thanks

Great app and concept, but few bugs and inconsistencies

It’s a really interesting concept and effective app, as it’s made a noticeable difference, which is awesome.

But there are some bugs that make it harder to navigate the app: the exercise videos will buffer and stop and need to be restarted in the 30 day challenge set (sometimes they even get mixed and correlate to an earlier exercise in the sequence, which requires the app or the daily challenge to be restarted), the name of the first exercise after the body scan sometimes isn’t stated (which is minor but makes it harder to track down when compiling an exercise playlist), and lastly, if I want to go back to figure out the exercise names, I have to go through the whole set for the day again (maybe it would beneficial to make the lesson modular after someone has completed it)?

And in terms of the actual exercises, they are super helpful, but the app rarely tells the user how many “reps” they need or how long each exercise needs to be done in the video. This seems like a missing piece that makes the exercise a little confusing, especially for a sustained practice outside of the app itself.

I think with these tweaks, the app can become great since it’s such a unique concept with an otherwise fun interface (the daily recording and tracking is awesome). I hope the developers can make these changes in the future, they’ve already done a great job.

Thank you so much for your review, and feedback!
We agree, there needs to be more clarity around how to do the exercises (how many reps, how long etc.) We'd love to speak with you personally about this issue. If you like, email us at robin@astoundthem.com
With the latest version 1.0.40 we improved the download feature. This hopefully fixes the video buffering issue you describe. Simply download the exercise packs beforehand, and watch them seamlessly.
We hope this helps a little.
