I made a short presentation and saved it to 30 Hands. It shows that it is there but when I click on it nothing happens. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do?

Why won't it let me record audio. Instead it just records 1 second of silence

I am having trouble viewing my presentations. I have saved it to the website - it says it is published, but there is no option to view.

Can you add songs to play along with the presentation?

If I have 30 Hands Pro on an iPad can I use the same account for the web version? It’s telling me I don’t have an account?
