Before beginning play, you must first aim Sphero with your device. This way he knows which way is forward in relation to you. Place your finger on the aiming button at the bottom of the Sphero app and hold it. (This looks like a circle with a dot on the bottom.) When the aiming ring on your Sphero screen appears, start rotating your finger around it. When you do this correctly you will see Sphero's blue taillight rotate inside the shell. Keep rotating until Sphero’s blue taillight points directly at you. You’re ready to take him for a spin! REMEMBER: YOU CAN RE-AIM SPHERO ANYTIME DURING PLAY.
