This is the second of four apps from Karyn Easton and Paranormality.com, based on her Tarot deck (The Lovers Tarot). It is a wonderful way to learn the Tarot, and a really fun addition to a Tarot group meeting, or as a mentoring resource. The one thing I would advise here is that an individual become familiar with the manner in which Easton defines the cards – which is traditional, but also personal to her.
The first thing that I found out when I went to open the app is that it is considered a game (duh!), and that I had to set up a profile before I could even begin. The profile was easy to set up, after I reset my Apple password for the nth time! (My phone and iTines have a very iffy relationship, at best.)
The opening screen gives the reader the choice of playing an easy game, or a hard game. They have the option to start a game, or to go to the Game Center and check high scores (from everyone who is playing!). At t he bottom of the screen are three small icons: Tarot Quiz, Share, and About.
Tarot Qui takes the player to the opening page. Share allows the player to share on Facebook, Twitter, or through e-mail. About gives information about the game, such as the two playing levels, The easy section is based on keywords, basic Tarot card meanings, and the spiritual (Qabalistic) name of each card. The Hard section tests he player on all of he elements associated with a card, including the rulership of each card, and its astrological association. It is noted that an overview of the information can be found on the Tarot Lovers website. It is recommended that the Tarot Card Meanings app be downloaded, as this is what the quiz is based on,
There are six possible answers to each question. If you choose the right answer, you will be moved on the t he next question. If you choose the wrong answer, you will lose a life, and have another chance to pick the right answer. Nice all five lives have been used up, you will be shown the correct answer, your score, and the time taken to answer the question. You can share your score through Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail. Tapping on The Quiz will take you back to the home screen.
The quiz can be paused at any time, and then restarted. The clock feature can be hidden, and the Tarot card can be enlarged. When a reversed card appears, you have the option to skip the question. However, if you choose to answer the question, you get bonus points!
I had a wonderful time playing with this app, and I think that you will too. I would also recommend getting all four apps (Tarot Quiz, Tarot Card Combinations,, Tarot Card Meanings, and Tarot Card Readings). They can all be seen here: http://paranormality.com/.
