Informative App but Needs Explanations for Reversed Cards
I used this app in one of my first explorations of Tarot, and I learned a lot about the basics from this app. There is a lot of useful information about various cards and spreads. Also, the illustrations on the cards and accompanying explanations are quite lovely. The main problem I had with this app is the fact that almost all of the cards I drew seemed to be reversed. This situation would be fine (maybe my energy really is that blocked), but there is no description of what the reversed cards mean in the context of this deck. Since I am fairly new to Tarot, I was constantly cross-referencing information on other websites and trying to apply it to my readings, but it just became awkward and tiring. I felt like relying on other interpretations meant I lost the Celtic/ecological nuances in this deck. To solve the problem, I now treat this deck as a sort of oracle deck, only read the cards in an upright position (which is an option in the settings menu), and use another deck for more "general" Tarot purposes.
I just bought the actual cards and book yesterday. I have never been drawn to tarot before discovering this deck. When I found the app today, I had to buy it. I'm very impressed with the clarity and organization of the cards in this app, as well as having the option to read the full description as written in the book. I like that I can study the cards on the go, which is my purpose for purchasing this app. And all for only $3.99?!
Great deck, great app!
The Wildwood Tarot is as stunning digitally as it it is in your hands. This review is about the application by Fool's Dog. It is a great app to use. I would like to see some changes: a) the ability to highlight, copy and paste text into user meanings/journal entries, b) the Tarot spread descriptions are buried in the "about the app" section not listed in the "choose a spread" section, c) user card meanings should be accessible from more places than just the main menu, IMO.
