iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Over the years, we’ve had more than a few chances to dive underneath the hood and look at some eBook styled applications for the iPhone and iPad. Today’s title is certainly up that same tree, though with a very unique subject matter.
Sexual Problems, from Närhetsakuten AB, is an app that’s all about those complications you experience in the bedroom, but might be too afraid or embarrassed to ask for help with. The app guides you through common problems, as well as solutions and you are invited to book a face-to-face session or a Skype session if you feel the app does not help you enough.
While it certainly has its faults, the information is clear and easy to access so, if that sounds like the perfect way to overcome your struggles, then read on below the break for our full rundown.
Concept and Functionality
To take a thirty-thousand foot view of the application, Sexual Problems works in a very simple way. It provides nine common complications with your sex life, analyzes some of their more common proponents and causes, then breaks it all down with a quick lesson on how to improve.
It’s a quick and simplified way to get vital information on the areas of your love life that bother you, and all without leaving the safety of your iPhone.
But how exactly does the application work on fixing your problems? Well, it’s not quite that Sexual Problems provides you with step-by-step measures to ensure your complications never happen again. Rather, you’re walked through a series of talks and guided meditations—not quite a meditation but you know what we mean—that calm you down, restructure the way you’re thinking, and help to promote a healthier sex life.
The claim by the developer is that the lessons are prepared by a real sexologist and qualified psychotherapist. To be fair, we here at TheiPhoneAppReview.com are not in a position to confirm or deny that and feel that users need to understand that, even if the developer’s claim is true, using this app is not a substitute for seeing a licensed therapist or doctor.
Overall, it appears to be a competent mix, though we don’t think it’s without a few solid complaints. For more information, see below!
Interface and Overall Evaluation
We’re going to be up front about this: While the content is interesting we’re not terribly large fans of the application’s interface. Sexual Problems is a very stark affair with high contrast black and white, and not much else. The lessons are played through a simple audio player at the bottom of a page, while the information contained here in text form is simply scrolled through.
It’s not the most appetizing package, and we also have some concerns about the lessons kept here. It’s not that we doubt the information can be helpful, but to piss off Frasier a little, you might be better off going to a doctor with more serious sexual problems.
At the end of the day, you’ll likely get out of Sexual Problems what you put into it. That is to say, if you’re convinced in the relaxing power of the therapeutic lessons contained here—and they are pretty relaxing, as well as informative—you’ll come away a better lover. However, this isn’t a one-size fits all, and at five dollars, you may be spending more than you want for less results than you’d like.
Sexual Problems requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
