The Gilded Reverie is a self published deck based on the cartomancy system commonly referred to as the LeNormand. This app is based on the cards of that special edition deck and is one probably the most sophisticated app of this genre. It offers you the ability to generate a card of the day, or review each card individually. Each card can be flipped to reveal its basic description and meaning which were provided by renowned and experienced figures in the Lenormand community, Tali Goodwin and Rana Gerorge.
In the reading section you can choose from a number of spreads or create your own and save them for future use. You can also add your own notes for any reading and save them to a journal for future access and reference. These notes can also be e-mailed along with a screen captures of the corresponding reading spread to clients or friends, directly from your iPad.
Also included are the two traditional spread configurations referred to as the Grand Tableau. When either of these are selected, the cards are dealt automatically. When pressed, each card will reveal and display a reference of its corresponding "House" placement which is positioned directly below.
Preferences include the use of either the standard 36 cards of the LeNormand system, or the option to override them by substituting additional Man/Woman cards, or "Owls" in place of "Birds"
Most apps use scans of the the original artwork which often compromises quality and detail. Whereas this Gilded Reverie app incorporates the same very high resolution files that were used to print the physical deck. This ensures that the detail and color of the original artwork is faithfully maintained even when zoomed in and displayed at several times the size of the actual deck.
Our apps do not not provide "canned" meanings as we consider that would be of questionable value and credibility. Instead we have strived to produce apps that closely resembles the functionality of their physical counterparts, namely as a tool in the hands of a reader. But with the added convenience of mobility.
This Gilded Reverie LeNormand app is intended for entertainment purposes only.
What's New in Version 1.1
Universal app build adding iPhone and iPodTouch support
Lenormand at its best!
NOTE: While this application is available for both the iPad and iPhone, it is optimized for the iPad.
I have road-tested the app's features on both the iPad and iPhone and the only issues I had with it were in regard to icon placement within the iPhone (that is, the arrow for flipping between the card and the meaning was nearly off the screen).
The app allows for image zoom, moving cards around free-style, and has display options for certain cards as well as using reversals. Ciro thought of everything!
Mostly justice to cards
I read Lenormand on a regular basis. The app represents the cards well and gives good options plus a few extra that are not with real deck. (Note I do not use the extra cards. Like the fact I can turn it off). My only request would to lock the screen when I turn the app sideways to read. Small readings when I don't want to pull my cards out this is great. I would not do a GT on the phone due to logistics.
This app is fine as far as it goes. Everything works. My only reservation is that when I do multiple card spreads, the cards are tiny and I can't flip them to get the definitions. I have to copy the spread onto a piece of paper, then look them up individually. Given that the Lenormand cards are to be read in relation to one another, this is a significant drawback. If you want to use this app to do a Grand Tableau I suggest a magnifying glass and a separate book!
