Our iPhone Massage Me app is ready for instant use as an
intelligent massager. Just press the Repeat button to begin
enjoying a pulsing iPhone that you can slowly move around your
body. The start button pulses the memorized pattern just once.
The first time you ask for a massage, the app will ask you if
the phone's Silent/Ring switch is in the Ring position. (The app
cannot determine the state of the switch by itself.) This is the
two-way switch on your phone's left side, just above the volume
controls. If you press Yes, the massage will take place;
otherwise it will not as the massaging action could be confused
with the alert for an incoming phone call.
Using the Pulse button, you can tap in your own pattern. The
first tap signals the beginning of a pattern, and the
succeeding taps define the time spacing of the pulses,
in real time. For example, if you tap once then tap
three times slowly followed by three times quickly,
you would first get a set of three pulses far apart,
followed by three pulses closer together. The time between
the first two taps is the minimum delay between successive
patterns while repeating. Try it a couple of times;
it's not really as hard as it sounds.
We would have liked to have matched the pulse durations to your
taps, but because of the current limitations imposed by Apple on
third-party apps (such as Massage), we are able to use only the
built-in vibration pattern. Should Apple at some time in the
future relax this limitation, we will update the app.
You can speed up or slow down the time between your pattern's
pulses by sliding the Speed slider control, to the left for
slower, and to the right for faster.
You can "just pulse once," by pressing the Pulse button.
To prevent overuse of the iPhone's vibrator, the app has
built-in safety controls. Press the Info (i) button to flip to a
screen where you will see two sliders. The Maximum Duty Cycle
slider inserts an extra time delay at the end of a pattern to
ensure that the iPhone vibration is never on for more that the
indicated percentage. The Maximum On Time limits the total
session time to the indicated number of minutes.
On the bottom of the flip view, there are buttons you can use to
restore the factory defaults and visit this app's webpage though
the Safari browser.
