When my girlfriend and I received this vibrator I was excited with the potential. I have seen a lot of OhMiBod products in the past and I have always been interested in trying something made by them. With the vibrating being so straightforward I figured it would be as easy as connecting the vibrator to my phone, and then I would be able to please my girlfriend from afar.
The vibrator is very easy to control. Press and hold the heart on the bottom of the vibe until it turns blue. From here you can pair it with your phone, and then download the OhMiBod app. You then create an account so your partner can find you and ask you to control their vibe, or you can ask them to take control.
I thought the connections feature of the app was pretty neat. The vibrator also seemed quite sleek and like it would do the job just fine. It has a curved head to pleasure her g-spot, and there is a ridge on this tip to give it that extra bit of stimulation.
All of this was great in theory, but when we got to using the toy we were quite disappointed. The app itself gives little feedback to the user to tell them what is happening with the vibrator. From my end of things, I had a flashing heart, and a chat screen. When trying to control the vibe while chatting with my girlfriend the app froze and it became frustrating to type. It was even more frustrating for her, as the vibrator would stop completely, or would lose connection as I was controlling it.
We tried out the different functions, and there wasnt really anything that was a clear winner. I became frustrated with my lack of ability to please her, and she became frustrated due to not being able to actually use the vibe as she needed to. When she disconnected, my app froze until I took the battery out of my phone.
When I returned home she expressed that even manually the toy was difficult to use. The curve of the handle makes it difficult for her to control where it goes. The only thing it really had going for it was the texture of the material (that silky plastic most toys have now). Beyond that, it fell flat.
Overall, it was a cool idea, but it was executed poorly. It could improve with changes to the app, but for now users are better off looking elsewhere.
