Several months ago I was approached to write a Tarot spread for an upcoming iPhone app. I am pleased to say that the app is ready and out on iTunes – http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tarot-spreads/id412949483?mt=8#. The app includes 50 original Tarot spreads, including the “Writer’s Block Spread” from me, the “Tarot Elements Signature Spread” from Catherine Chapman (http://tarotelements.com), and spreads from Joanna Powell Colbert, Jessica Macbeth, Barbara Moore, Robert M. Place, Leisa ReFalo, James Ricklef and James Wells.
There are twelve variations of the three card spread, spreads varying from three cards to thirty-five cards, six decision making spreads, eight relationship spreads, eleven celebrity spreads and one random spread.
I cannot speak to the usability of the app, as I do not have an iPhone or an iPad (I know, very far behind in techie goodies!), but I would like to show you two screenshots that will show you a little about the depth and diversity in this app:
The app, created by Nancy Hendrickson and Fred West, gives the user the ability to access unique spreads and work with them with the deck of their choice. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It requires iOS 3.1 or later. There are separate applications for the iPod Touch and iPhone screens, with the Tarot Spreads HD version designed specifically for the larger screen of the iPad. More information can be seen on iTunes – http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tarot-spreads/id412949483?mt=8#.
