Re: Fractional + constant time bug #bugs

Hello Phil!

Thanks for your friendly bug report! It's not the lack of your understanding, it really is a bug ) We are aware of it, and it's is already fixed in the new version that will be available within a week or so. But before that, here's how you can avoid this to happen:
1. Set fractional ratio to 1.5:0:1.5:0.
2. Set seconds per unit value to 1 second.
3. This way you've got this pattern working without this unpleasant thing happening.

Sorry for the inconvenience! Anyway, the new version is on its final testing stage, and hopefully you will like it!


Fractional + constant time bug #bugs

Phil Swindler <phillipswindler@...>
 

Dear Oleksandr & Nadia,
 
First, thank you for creating the awesome app, Prana Breath! About a year ago I tried the free version of your app, quickly fell in love, and purchased the guru version.
 
Despite the fact that I've been using your app for a while, as far as creating and customizing my own breathing routines, I'm still a novice. Recently, I've been trying to create a new Breathing Session and quickly became stuck. I'd love your help!
 
My goal is to create a breathing session that has the following parameters:
  • Inhale - Constant time, Fractional; = 1.5 seconds
  • Retain = 0
  • Exhale - Constant time, Fractional; = 1.5 seconds
  • Sustain = 0
Below are screenshots of the steps I'm taking and what is happening as a result:
 
1. I select the "+" button and then "Breathing Session"
Screenshot_20190205-142211.png
 
2. For now, I just accept the default ratios and select "OK"
Screenshot_20190205-142258.png
 
3. Next, I select the "%" button on the far right had row that is labeled as "Ratio of breath cycle" (from the "Control" screen) in order to modify the settings
Screenshot_20190205-142352.png
 
4. First, I set "Inhale" to 1.500 seconds and "Retain" to 0 (as illustrated below)
Screenshot_20190205-143427.png
 
5. Next, I scroll down and set "Exhale" = 1.500 seconds and "Sustain" = 0
In the process, "Inhale" is automatically changed to 1.900 seconds (as illustrated below). I need "Inhale" to stay at 1.500 seconds.
Screenshot_20190205-143456.png
 
6. Then, when I move back up to change "Inhale" back to 1.500 seconds, "Exhale" is automatically moved or changed to 1.900 seconds (as pictured below).
Screenshot_20190205-144024.png
 
7. You can see the final results pictured below. Again, what I need to do is set "Inhale" to 1.5s and "Exhale" to 1.5 seconds and cannot figure out how to do that.
Screenshot_20190205-144031.png
Screenshot_20190205-145139.png
 
I'm pretty sure that the problem is mine and my lack of understanding. I'd love your help teaching understand what I'm doing wrong. I'd also appreciate your help understanding the principles involved: what is the design principle (in the background which was used to create this app) that I'm not understanding.
 
It's almost like one of the settings in this breathing session is causing it to be "over constrained", causing the Inhale & Exhale times to dependently "react" so that some other parameter stays satisfied in the process. In the end, this is only my theory and doesn't really matter.
 
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Tania!

Do you use the latest version of Prana Breath? If you don't, please update it. If you do, what exactly patterns are corrupted?

Hi

Thanks

I am living a pretty healthy lifestyle, work out, am known as a wellness person from my work and look much younger than my age. I have a good library too.. Meditate, do yoga, Kundalini, Hatha, yin, etc daily, lift weights, box, Wim Hoff,

Appreciate the suggestions. I am looking for breath techniques to support holistic healing for teeth, stimulate hair growth.

I am not a newbie, as those two are for newbies. I have been using breathwork in yoga, taken an audio course and practised, did Tony Robbins' deep breathing g suggestions for years, etc, and practice mindfulness.

I suppose there is a lot of power in breathing. I read all the descriptions and had a few I really liked but would like to focus on just one. Anolom vilom, so far, or kapalbatti just started. Tummo similar to Wim Hoff. 
I suppose I want a progression that suits me, and I guess doing more than 1-2 a day is not long term consistently practical. 
Regards

Hello Happy!

Thanks a lot for your kind words, I'm happy you like the app!

Surely you understand the health goals you have are the question of eating, environment, emotional state, etc. And there is no "magic pill" or "magic app" to have it all fixed at once. I would strongly recommend you to visit your physician to make some hormone level tests. But still, breathing exercises promote stable emotional condition, thus balance hormone system. You can try any pattern to see how it feels, I would only recommend Coherent breathing https://pranabreath.info/wiki/index.php?title=Special:MyLanguage/Coherent_breathing Square breathing https://pranabreath.info/wiki/index.php?title=Special:MyLanguage/Square_breathing and Harmony https://pranabreath.info/wiki/index.php?title=Special:MyLanguage/Harmony to start with.

Have a great healthy 2019!

Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Hello Marcia!

Here is what we've got for this very moment - it's an issue of an Android emulator, and unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about fixing it. Maybe one day, once we get BlackBerry device (it's not that easy here in Ukraine), we would be able to see what's happening.

But! As there is 7-day trial period (you can see billing date is 14 December), you can cancel your subscription (and you are the only one capable of it, we cannot "unsubscribe" you), therefore your card should now be billed. If you won't do it before this date, I'm not sure if we can do a refund, as Amazon does not support refund policy ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201380130 ).

It's true, Guru version works on any device if you log in the very same Google account, but again, we cannot guarantee its proper work on Android emulator. Emulators are emulators, they cut off some services needed for app's normal behavior. Hopefully you will have it working, and please let us know if it works!


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Hello again, I have a further question. I've read on your FAQs you can use the GURU version on several mobiles using the same email address. What I would then like to suggest doing after you have cancelled my order - Is whether I can install the Guru version on another mobile which uses Google App and then use it on my current BlackBerry mobile which downloads from Amazon only (that's at present), will the Guru version then be available on the BlackBerry mobile?


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

mseeya01
 

Hello Oleksandr and Nadia, it's coming up to nearly a week after purchasing the Guru version and still have not been able to use the features; are you yet close to a solution or can we cancel the order?

It's possible if cancelled I can try to reorder it again.

Thank you.

Kind Regards, Mseeya


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Thank you for the video example. My purchase looked different and I use the Android emulator that comes with the Blackberry. I include a screenshot of my screen attached. However I can confirm that Yes, I have purchased and paid for  apps from‎ amazon in the past.

Anyway here is the Purchasing screenshot. I look forward to hearing your recommendations. Thank you.

Take care now, Marcia

Marcia, here I am again. Here is a video of what happens on all our testing devices, and as you see, everything is ok. The only issue I can suspect Amazon API relies on special Android services your device might not have, as it's Blackberry OS, and Android OS is emulated.

Could you please tell me, from where did you get Android emulator and have you ever had successful Android app purchases on Amazon for your Blackberry?

Please note when I upgraded to Guru, it was while I was using the previous version not the one mentioned above. As when the upgrade did not take effect, I did as suggested in FAQs which failed then uninstalled and reinstalled the app which came up as this version mentioned above. 

I am wondering, is it possible for you to cancel this order and I try upgrading with this version?

I await your reply. Thank you.

Thanks a lot, Gildas! I will add this pattern to our wiki )


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Hi Marcia!

We are very sorry for your inconvenience, but the thing is, we are still unable to find out what exactly is wrong. All services for Amazon subscription worked fine as we tested them. A couple more questions so we can keep searching what's there:

What version of Prana Breath are you using (please see the numbers in About section in Options tab)?
Haven't you heard any fanfare sound and a special message right after you've upgraded to Guru?

Hopefully with your help we'll catch this nasty bug! Thanks for cooperation!


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Just to add, Sadly today still unable to use the Guru features.


Re: No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

mseeya01
 

Hello Nadia,
 
I had been using Prana Breath for a couple for a few days then selected in ‎Settings Guru Version and chose to upgrade for 3 months using the Amazon Appstore app on my mobile phone which was successful. I then looked at my Amazon Account to make sure it was included which it is. I closed and restarted Prana Breath; even uninstalled and reinstalled but found when for example I tried to change the Theme; I receive the notification 'Available in Guru version'. This message has appeared in other areas too ie when adding a note to the Log. So in answer to your first question. It seems yes I keep getting a dialog box showing Available in Guru version.
 
But to answer all your other questions:
 
No, I didn't experience any Internet problems with upgrading to Guru version when I signed up for 3 months subscription.
 
Yes, I have restarted Prana Breath after the purchase.
 
No, I have never had access to the Guru version.
 
My device name is Blackberry Passport which uses Android 4.3 and Prana Breath runs beautifully on it.
 
Thank you to you Nadia and the Team. For a lovely product. I look forward to your reply.
 


Re: Prana Breath 8.2.0_8 and no transition sound ?

gperrot@...
 

Yes, it is ! 

Thanks a lot for your help. I would suggest to add also the heart coherence breathing : 3 times a day, 6 breaths a minute (5 seconds for inspire, 5 seconds for expire) for 5 minutes (https://www.amazon.com/Heart-coherence-365-guide-lasting-ebook/dp/B00LB6RYJW).

Good luck.

Gildas.

Hi Mseeya!

Thanks for your kind words, and sorry for your unpleasant experience!

Could you please specify the details about the problem? Mainly I need the following info:
Does the app keep encouraging you to get Guru version, do you see such dialogs?
Didn't you have any problems with internet connection while upgrading to Guru?
Have you restarted Prana Breath after the purchase?
Have you had an access to Guru version and it's gone, or haven't you ever have it available?
Your device name and Android version.

Looking forward to help you!


No Guru after purchasing subscription from Amazon

Hello Oleksandr and Nadia, I've read your FAQs but still after restarting my mobile and uninstalling and reinstalling vs 8.3.0_15 plus Amazon confirms that I have purchased the subscription. I still cannot access the Guru version.
And just in case you are checking for my account, I used a different email which I'm happy to supply as a message if you require it.
Can you help? Thank you. Kind Regards.
