Why some recordings won't be released as apps
09 November, 2012
Late last year (2011), Mike and I sent a standard app to Apple for release in December. To our surprise, Apple rejected the app saying that it wasn't using iOS to its fullest extent and perhaps we should release them all as MP3s instead.
We were very aware that with 20 apps already available on iTunes, we didn't want to "rock the boat" and we started working on what has now become Relax+. This much more advanced App allows a choice of background music, volume control and has the ability to play two or three "therapy" sections in one session along with a choice of inductions. Over the next few months, we plan to add to the choice of therapy sections and also include new versions of our "classic"apps as well.
I have had requests over the years for more guided meditations/relaxations and have always had plans to record titles like "Inner Child", "Meditate" and "Chakra Visualization" however, as these recordings are meant to be played in one continuous session, they are unsuitable for inclusion in Relax+ or being released as an individual app.
Over the last 4 years, I have reduced my MP3 prices from £9.00 ($13.50) to £5.00 ($7.50) down to £2.00 (approx $3.00) to match app pricing
Any of these MP3s can be downloaded to a desktop/laptop and then synched to any MP3 player, smartphone or tablet.
I want to thank you for your continued support and your kind words about all the recordings.
We have big plans for 2013!
