Ratings and Reviews
Difficult to Use
One would think that the average user of this app would want to create a natal chart as the initial activity. Good luck trying to do that. The user is initially shown two transit charts for a location in Australia. It is not clear how to get rid of them, how to create a natal chart, or how to do anything useful. The only way I could find to create a natal chart was to save one of the transit charts then edit it as a natal chart. Next, I changed the default home location in settings. Then, after far too much time and effort, I got a proper natal chart with correct transits. While this program seems to have useful capabilities, the user interface is very poorly done. It appears to have never been tested with real users prior to release. With a complete interface redesign, it might be worthy of 4 stars. As is, Time Passages Pro is a better choice.
Best iOS Astrology App for Classical Astrologers
I am referring to the astrologers who use pre-twentieth century astrological references and techniques (not that classical astrologers ignore the developments after 1900). This app provides some nice options regarding what triplicity, face and decans one wants to use (Egyptian, Ptolemy, Lilly) and uses the traditional aspects (planetary aspects as opposed to the aspects themselves). The tables of essential dignities as well as other tables are very nice. I also have the Mac OS version. Kudos to the developers!
Between the desktop and the iPhone apps, I couldn’t be happier - and the improvements keep coming.
This is the easiest and cleanest astrological app I’ve found to date. Highly recommend.
