News for owners of iPhones and iPads (OS iOS).
Six months ago, for these devices, my friend and I started working on the Pocket Psychologist application. This is an interactive collection of the best articles by progressman.ru in text and audio formats.
The theme of the first issue is relationships. The rest – later. Some of the articles have been noticeably revised and supplemented specifically for the application.
The program looks simple, but a lot of work was done – I wanted to do everything flawlessly.
You can download it for free at this link.
The app has unobtrusive ads. It can be removed in the settings for a nominal fee.
