Introduction to the AffirmationWorks Blog

Glenn CrownoverApril 6, 2012
Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to visit our site and read the blog!

Since this is the very first entry, I will use this opportunity to quickly explain what this site aims to accomplish, and what you can expect to see in this blog.

This began as a simple iPhone application to help people organize their affirmations and walk them through reciting them. It was intended to be very simple. In fact, I was using this to learn the particulars of iPhone development and needed a simple project.  Affirmations were not something I was very familiar with, but I was interested in learning more about them.

There was considerable interest, and hundreds of people purchased the app and were making feature requests. This drove me to expand on the feature set, which I plan to continue doing in pursuit of creating the best affirmations companion app possible.

And now, we have created this web site and blog to provide more tools, resources and tips for those looking to learn about and maximize the effectiveness of our app, and of affirmations in general.

An admission: I am more of a student in this area than a teacher.  I have only scratched the surface in terms of my own learning on this subject.  And so the articles posted here will generally fall be of the following types:
  1. As I learn more about how to utilize affirmations effectively, I will post my discoveries here in hopes that it can benefit others.
  2. I will recruit experts in this field to "Guest Post" relevant articles, tips and techniques.  I have read some excellent posts online, and would love to republish them here.
  3. Anyone who has had an experience using affirmations (good or bad) that would be willing to let us post it here, we would be happy to.
Just like our iPhone/iPad app, we will keep this site clean, free of "noise", and focused on moving all our readers, and ourselves, forward in this journey to improve ourselves.

And as always, please do not hesitate to drop me an email, or a tweet, or feedback (see the tab on the right side of our site) with your suggestions, comments, or even criticisms.

This is only the beginning!

I am having a problem editing my affirmation. When it opens up and I press edit, it does not allow editing but closes up and does not allow scrolling down. Will this be fixed or am I doing something wrong. I appears all of your help tips are how to affirm not how to use the program. Thanks.

Hi Chris. Thanks for buying the app! It sure sounds like you are doing it right - you should be able to simply click "edit", after which the keyboard should pop up and you should be able to edit your entry. When done, click "save". Is this problem occurring for all your affirmations or just a particular one? You might try completely exiting the app (home button twice, then swipe the app "up" - in iOS 7) and then try running it again.

I just purchased this app. All does is slideshow some preset affirmations. In the details shown in the pre-purchase info, the app was described as having categories of affirmations (mine does not), and as being editable (mine is not). I have tapped the screen on my iPad to try to ifind a menu of some sort, and also searched online. Was this app created and abandoned, or am I missing something. If it was abandoned, I would like a refund.

Aliza, the app was not showing for a short while due to an issue with Apple - but we got that straightened out and the app now appears properly. We are working on an update now - stay tuned!
