Tarot Holic is a lifestyle app. by DA SOM JEON where you can get different types of Tarot Card readings on your device. Tarot card readings are supposed to provide some sort of answer for you for a life question or lay out a map of sorts of your current and/or future situation. When trying the app. out, I actually used a real problem from my life as a starting point, and let me tell you, the app. was pretty accurate. This could obviously be chance or me reading too much into it, but I’d rather choose to believe that it’s because Tarot Holic has all the answers.
The app. has a home screen and four other sections: Fortune, History, Browse, and Settings. The home screen has a short description of the app. (in REALLY small text), and then in the upper right hand corner there is an “i” icon for more information. The Fortune portion of the app. is the most important part. Here you have eight different options for how to have your tarot cards read: User-centered One-Card/One-major/Three-Card or In-depth One-Card/One-major/Three-Card/Love Spread/Career Spread/Celtic Cross. You are supposed to type in a question at the top of the screen and then choose what type of spread you want applied to that question. The user-centered responses are shorter, and the in-depth ones are longer. But you can ask questions either way, so I don’t know how one set of responses is more or less ‘user-centered’ than another. The other features are a history where you can save particular readings, a browsing section where you can look through all the cards, and a settings section where you can alter some aspects of how the cards are read/spread.
The tarot cards themselves are colorful, intricate, and look like a real tarot deck would. When a card is pulled up, it appears picture side first, and you have to tap it to get it to turn over to the text side. The text side says the name of the card at the top in grey, gives key words/ideas that the card deals with in white, and then gives the description in black. This is all set against a purple/blue card background with a scrolling pattern in the corners. Cards can also appear upside-down, meaning that the reverse of whatever that card says is applicable. Ex: If I got the reversed Ten of Cups, which means happiness, stability, and comfort, it might mean there were problems at home, etc.
My only complaint is that the text on the cards is pretty small, I wish there was a way to enlarge/focus it. Also, a better description of what each of the fortune choices/spreads mean and how they’re different would be helpful.
This app. is easy to use and fun- who doesn’t want to know what their future is going to look like? If you are willing to pay $1.99 to find out, then you just may be a Tarot Holic.
