Recording your own cheers

Click on the Cheers tab, then select Record a Personal Cheer. Enter a name for your new personal cheer and then press the red record button interface to record. Be motivational! If you wish your cheer to remain personal on your device, leave the rocker button on Personal. If you wish to share this cheer on the public library, tap Shared Cheer. You will be prompted to select a category for which you believe your cheer would best be suited. For example, if you cheered for someone by name you might want to select that name in our library. You can add a new category if you don't believe an suitable one exists. Note the category "Cheer For All™" might be great for generic cheers.

Sharing your cheers with the Cheer Library™

Sharing a Personal Cheer with the library can be done on two occasions. First, when originally recording your personal cheer (see above, "Recording you own cheers"), and second, when viewing its details. Whenever you choose to share a Personal Cheer you will be prompted to select a category in the library for which you think it might be best suited.

Browsing and downloading from the Cheer Library™

Click on the Cheers tab, then select Shared Cheers. This will load the categories in the library. Select a name in the library, or an event/cause. This will load the shared cheers within that category. Pick a cheer and its options will load: you can listen, download it to My Cheers, or report it for content. You can sort the cheers in alphabetic, or in order of popularity (available in Settings).

Retracting your cheer from the Cheer Library™

Every Personal Cheer you share with the Library can be retracted at any time, even if the original cheer was deleted from your device. Simply visit the library (while logged in on the same account that you used to upload the cheer) and select the cheer you wish to retract. You can then make the cheer Personal instead of Shared, which effectively retracts the cheer and it will no longer be available for public download.

Receiving and Retrieving Cheerograms™

In order to receive a Cheerogram™, a friend must send it to the email with which you registered at Cheerster™. You will receive a confirmation email and you will receive an Apple Push Notification on your device as soon as the cheerogram is sent. To retrieve it, click on Cheers and then My Cheerograms™. All the Cheerograms™ sent to you will be presented, and you can choose to listen to, download to My Cheers or delete them one at a time. Cheerograms™ by default cannot be shared on the public library.

Sending Cheerograms™

This can be either from within the Cheerster™ app, or on our website. On the app, tap on the Cheers tab, then Send a Cheerogram™. Enter the user's name and email, or select an email from your contacts. Record a cheer using the recording interface and tap Send. You will receive a confirmation email.

Getting LiveCheers™

To listen to Cheerograms™ as you run, go to Settings and turn on LiveCheers™. Then switch to the Go tab, tap Start and start running! All Cheerograms™ sent to your email will automatically be played on your device as you run! Of course, the Cheerograms™ will still be available for playback at a later time.

Stream a Library Folder

To stream an entire Cheer Library™ folder at random, select Cheer Source from the home screen and then Shared Cheers. The folders on the Cheer Library™ will be presented and you can select any one folder to stream as you run. This way, cheers from within that folder will be played at your preselected interval as you run. In this case, all other cheers on your device will not play.
