Angels MyPad+

Great start  Angels MyPad+  5 star

I like to use this app because it has so many ways to use oils in a way that may not have been thought of. Also I enjoy all the information provided to better understand the multiple uses for all of our oils. My only suggestion would be to have the option to add in my oils, such as an inventory and to be able to search using your inventory when looking for a particular use.

i love this app. i use it almost every day. i've explored many of the healing treatments and ideas. so far, i'm a big fan. i have this book too but love to search on the app. could be improved by staying more up to date or by linking pages to oils that are referenced.

Good  DaviRae  4 star

I like this app and have never had trouble with it๐Ÿ˜Š I did gift to someone though that is too obsessive about clearing out her email so she deleted it and deleted her trash before checking to see what it was I need to know who/how to get a hold of someone to help me get it sent to her again After all I paid for it

New oils and blends  Sad fatty  3 star

New oils do not show up when you search them by name. Also the app is pretty buggy. A new update is needed soon to get it back to where it was with new oils and products.


?  ILoveOils  5 star

When are you going to update this app with the new oils (2016)? You've always updated very quickly in the past...but not this time. I use this app daily...LOVE it! I'm glad I haven't had a single issue like the other reviews.


Wish I could send info  klacopo  5 star

I LOVE this app for when I'm on the go and don't have my reference book with me. However, I would love it so much more if I could send the info - like an oil or blend info page or the reflexology charts - to my clients when they have a question or I give out a sample. Just a thought for future updates!


Great App! Quick & easy!  AppleAppAddict  5 star

Love this app! No problems here. Nice to have a quick reference without carrying around the book!


Oil user  hjoilsolutions  5 star

Love this app!!!! Great to look up issues on the go or what an oil is good for. Amazing pictures of the feet. And good links to their events. Wow! Thanks for continually updating it as my oil company adds new oils. Wonderful!


Great Info.  TurahShaver  4 star

I really like the info on the app and how everything is set up. It is difficult however to get to the items towards the end of the alphabet. You have to scroll through everything and there is not even a shortcut to just jump to a letter. I feel that would make it even more user friendly.


Love the app  NaughtNyxx  5 star

Some oils not represented. I went to look up cumin and didn't see it. I wish they'd make oil blend names searchable. I understand that they shouldn't use brand names but I'd like to be able to go into search and look up elevation rather than google on Internet and find out its joyful blend.


Deep blue not listed?  PunchEYE  4 star

Where is it in the app?


Awesome!!  True2Honor  5 star

I love this app!! I can look up any oil and any condition too!! Very handy!!

Solitare junky

Awesome job!!  Solitare junky  5 star

Love this app!! Exactly what I need when I don't have my modern essentials book right next to me.


"Bug fix" update messed blend names up!  Lindsey0902  2 star

Would have given this app a 5 star rating, but since the new update for "bug fixes" for the blend names, my blend names do not show! Your "fix" messed my app up! Please resolve ASAP!


App keeps crashing  Tmarston0318  1 star

Ever since your last update (3/5) combined with the apple update over the weekend the app is crashing. I can look up an issue, then when selecting the app closes. Please fix, this is a royal pain.


Modern Essentials: pocket edition!  Liona127  5 star

I love this app! I love being able to whip my phone out and tell my friends "there's an oil for that!" The app is slightly less comprehensive than the book, but I wouldn't expect it to be the entire book! It had some crashing issues when I got it a few months ago, but they must have worked out those bugs because it's been working great for me lately!


What's with the %Blend11%?  Oh2blykJC  3 star

I don't know what happened with this update but wherever the protocol calls for a blend, it gives a blend number instead of a blend name. But there's nowhere in the app to find out which blend goes with each number. Is this just an iPhone 6+ issue?


Decent app  Tchrwnnb  2 star

Good mobile tool but every time I click on certain headings (tension and stress are the 2 that ALWAYS do it) the app closes. Every time.
