for APPLE Devices
Welcome A Course in Miracles (ACIM) Reminder App. This app is intended to assist those studying the Workbook section of the spiritual text A Course in Miracles. A Course in Miracles is spiritual text whose purpose is to assist readers transform themselves and their lives. It contains spiritual text and a workbook of lessons that are to be practiced daily for one year.
It is with great joy that The Foundation for Inner Peace and CDE Solutions brings this app to you to assist you in the study of the Workbook lessons.
This app is a reminder app. It will alert the student at the proper times during the day when a lesson is to be remembered. When an alert is sounded, the student will have access to both the full workbook text as well as the shortened text (only the portions of text that are to be remembered for the day). The intent is for the student to refer to the full text when all instruction is required and to refer to the shortened text when needing to recite the affirmation in the middle of busy day.
Please read these help instructions prior to using the app as they will point out some things that may not be obvious.
Go to the 'Today's Lesson' screen and scroll to the lesson of the day. Then simply click the Alerts On/Off button and your alerts will be set for day.
Go to the 'Setting' screen and set the alert sound, start time, end time, interval and font size.
Sounds will be played after they are selected so you will be able to determine which one you like.
After setting Start and End times the first time, the app will remember your choices and default start/end times the following day. You will therefore not need to enter start/end times each day unless you wish to change them.
You will have several interval choicers to choose from. Intervals that correspond to what the Course is recommending for that particular lesson are highlighted in the color Red.
You can adjust the font. This adjustment is for the Full Text, Reminder Text and Customize Screens.
Go to the 'Reminder' screen. Every lesson that was to be remembered prior to the current time will be in red. Every lesson still to be remembered will be in green. Black indicates the alerts have not yet been set for the day.
Go to the Reminder Text screen. This is the text of the lesson for the day. We recommend exiting the app from this screen. This way after the alert pops up, you will be taken to this screen when you click the Okay buttonon the alert. You can customize this reminder text by clicking the "Customize" button at the top right.
When you get to the Customize screen, simply click anywhere inside the practice text and a keyboard will popup. Change the text to what you wish it to be, then click anywhere outside of the practice text to make the keyboard disappear. Then click the 'Save' button. Click the 'Reset' button to revert the text back to hwat was specified in the Course.
The Full Text:
When the student requires the entire workbook lesson, it can be accessed by clicking on the tab entitled 'Full Text'.
Introductions, Reviews, Epilogue:
The entire ACIM Workbook is in this app. This includes the introductions, review instructions, and the Epilogue. When an introduction, review or epiloge is selected, you will notice that the Settings and Reminder tabs are disabled. This is because when one of these is chosen, there are no reminder to be set. The Full Text tab is however enabled so that the student can access the full text review, introduction and epilogue instructions.
