Sphero Mini, as a spherical robot, doesn't recognize it's front from back. This is where "Aiming" comes in, which allows you to tell mini which side is the front and which is the back, based on your position. As a best practice,  we recommend you always aim Mini before you drive. 

To aim, navigate to the aiming screen by tapping the center icon on the bottom of the Sphero Mini app driving screen. Use the center dial to tap and rotate the white dot around the circular dial until Sphero Mini's blue tail light points towards you, then release your finger. Now your mini knows which side is forward, so you can enjoy precise driving controls.
