Technical Support for DIY Human Body

Why doesn't the app work on my mobile device?

DIY Human Body is currently compatible with iPhones and iPads that have iOS 7 or later installed.

Why do the videos in the app lack sound?

The most common reason you don't hear any sound is due to the "Mute" toggle on your iOS device. Or, just as common, the volume has been lowered so low that it settles on "mute." If turning up the volume doesn't work, flip the toggle switch above the volume controls on the side of your iOS device.

Why can’t I view the videos?

Make sure you’re connected to the internet via wi-fi to get the best video experience as we stream from YouTube.

Can I send the DIY Human Body activities to a friend?

Yes! You can e-mail them a PDF of the activity within the app! Or you can download the activities PDFs from this page.

If you have any technical support issues with the app or have any suggestions, please e-mail: lhsdevelopment@lists.berkeley.edu.
