Named for a famous card reader from the time of the French Revolution, Mademoiselle Marie Anne Lenormand read cards for many historical figures. These 36 images came to be called the Petit Lenormand cards after Mademoiselle Lenormand had died.

good deck - needs more work

I've only just discovered the three "Lenormand" decks made by this company, and like their artwork and simple directness. Unfortunately, in this particular Lenormand deck, to get both the traditional and modern meanings, you have to stumble upon the menu, and then go through two levels of menu choices.....and then pick one or the other.

They don't even tell you that the deck, as downloaded, doesn't contain both meanings on the meanings page. They don't even say that you have to pick, unless you go many pages deep in the instruction manual, and even there it isn't clear because it isn't specific to this particular deck.

In fact, if you read the instruction manual, you'll be looking for a bar along the bottom with the suits, etc., that doesn't exist in this app, because this is "Lenormand" rather than "Rider."

So how did I find out that there were separate meanings, not shown on the "Meanings" page for each card? I accidentally brushed the top right corner, and discovered the choice (two layers deep).

This is advertised as an "iPad app" and the descriptions are short. There is all kinds of white space in the "Meanings" area. They could certainly have put both meanings on one card, and still not even used up a quarter of the screen space available to them. Sheesh.

Great app

Lenormand fan

I've been using the Lenormand since 2009. I've tried a couple of apps that came out a few years before this one but this one works best. Take screen size and interface into account. Journal is helpful note my questions. I don't use the built in meanings. Works well on iPhone and iPad. Recommended.

Good content, bad glitch


I used it daily as it allows a quick reading when there's no time to sit with the cards. But one day it decided to quit instead of goingbto my saved readings. Even after erasing app and stored memory, and downloading it several times, access to past readings is not available. It simply quits. Not happy.
