Is there an iOS version of the app?
No, at least not at the moment (and possibly not in the near future). The app is specifically tailored to Android and utilizes the platform's capabilities. If you would like to run the app on a computer instead, you have many choices in this regard:
Run Android apps via an emulator on any operating system (Recommended). You can use "Nox", "Bluestacks", "MEmu", "Genymotion", "AMIDuOS", "YouWave", "Andy" or any other utility that falls in the category of an 'Android emulator'.
Run natively on Linux. You can use Anbox for that.
Run natively on Windows 10 via Hosted Apps.
Run natively on Chromebook.
Run an Android virtual machine inside your operating system. Manual configuration with the help of an application like "Vmware", "Parallels", "VmBox", "Hyper-V".
Install Android on a computer as the operating system. Click here for details.
Make sure you have Google Play installed on the platform.
You may need to manually install a Unicode 6+ font to display symbols correctly. For that, enable root from the settings and install an app for changing the default font used by the system.
What are the advantages of acquiring geolocation credits?
Saves from erroneous data, especially due to varying timezone policies.
Saves from typing mistakes and the hassle of dealing with fractions.
Ability to improve precision by factoring in altitude into the sunrise/sunset calculation equation. Must be enabled from the settings tab.
Daylight Saving Time validation when looking up a new date/time for a non-local position.
How many lookups are given per purchase?
On average, you get about 15* destination lookups per purchase. Credits are only deducted when lookups are
and have been successful.
The price paid contains your locale-specific tax as determined by your government and Google's cut. The remaining amount helps cover:
Your actual usage paid to the geolocation service.
The free credits given on the first install to try out the service.
Maintenance and development of the app, as it has no other sustainable source of income.
Tip: There is a 50% credit bonus involved for a consecutive purchase. Any geolocation credits purchase made in two weeks following the previous one is regarded as a consecutive purchase.
Notice: Clearing app data or removing the app and installing it back with no backup utility in place will result in loss of credits; because unlike the one-time-only ad removal purchase, credits are temporary units and nontransferable via account synchronization. To avoid that, you may use the backup feature of the Android system when planning to migrate to a new device.
* The amount of credits bought is fixed. However, the number of lookups required per location varies between 1-4:
- 1 mandatory lookup for the timezone.
- 1 lookup for detecting target coordinates, but only when there is no profile saved with the same location name, and the Android internal geocoder fails. Google put an undisclosed quota on this service, so if you have too many (?) apps using geolocation, it may fail.
- 1 lookup for detecting DST time border when deemed necessary.
- 1 optional lookup for retrieving the target elevation.
How are given attributes calculated?
At first, each planet is assigned a strength value depending on the interpretation of the astronomical and esoteric conditions.
Calculation of all attribute sections are based on Zodiac section. Attributes are here to symbolize the current/natal conditions in terms of zodiac signs and by the topics/areas they represent. To calculate this section, every zodiac sign is given a multiplier for each planet, which is then multiplied by the corresponding calculated planet strength and then all added together. Day/night affinity of zodiac signs, moon phase, sun/moon sign, current period in life, location and gender are also taken into account. This calculation is also the key to the congruence/compatibility and skills.
One important association of the Zodiac is with colors/chakras/rays and tarot as seen in this table, which are again used to calculate some other sections.
Some sections, such as "Professions & Interests" and "Jung Personalities" use attributes from multiple sections in their calculation.
"Divine Names" section uses the value associations from this table derived using numerology.
How unique are the calculated attributes?
It is a very distinct possibility to run into the exact fingerprint properties unless birth data is all the same. Combination of several conditions, as well as the degree of progression in zodiac signs, are taken into consideration to unveil additional information and to better differentiate every instance.
Why do some people have very low natal skill values?
These people have high-highs and low-lows for zodiac sign values and keen inclinations towards some specific attributes, which creates instability. Although they may perform outstandingly in some instances, it won't be consistent in the matter of skills; they represent more general aspects as apposed to attributes.
Is ascendant (rising sign) included in the calculations?
No. It is not because ascendant is not important, but may be irrelevant. Ascendant has its play in masking the inner personality and giving it a shape, rather than determining character. The ascendant determines the what and how of a person's likes and his/her expressions, but has no role in the why of it. Again, ascendant determines the (physical) body type, but not the function. Although important, it is merely a dressing and determines the type of people and experiences you are going to attract yourself, but not your internal response to them.
When you compare your (sidereal) ascendant with the Zodiac section and find out that you don't bear your Ascendant's qualities within, you may find yourself in a position seeming hypocritical to others as well as to yourself. Although this will make life harder for you, it is nothing to worry about. If this is the case, ascendant indicates the qualities you are to allow in your current life.
How is congruence/compatibility calculated?
This is simply done by adding compatible zodiac signs and subtracting incompatible signs (to the extent of compatibility/incompatibility) for each calculated zodiac sign and taking the max difference between any two calculated values. Greater the result, the greater the congruence. It is the same with compatibility calculation, only for the combined pool of zodiac signs. There is also some bonus or penalty taken due to overall soft/hard energy distribution.
What is meant by the Divine Names section?
Divine names are the qualities/acts of God that create and manage the universe*. App shows a list of correspondences between the most common divine names and the individual (with personalization enabled) or time/place (without personalization) based on astronumerology. Like all other attributes, strength and priority of a particular name depends on its value. There are three Divine Names sections:
Assets: These are the names that define the subject; her strengths and weaknesses.
Biases: These are the names that reflect the biases of the subject and they show her intentions and what she would like to do.
Duties: These are the the names that indicate the responsibilities, honors and requirements of the subject. Shows where the subject is called for. Subject is challenged to play role in high-value areas displayed here.
*Information about these are not available as of yet. They are intended for those who are already familiar. These are not individual deities!
What is the origin of the spiritual biorhythm cycle?
This is given in the channeled book "Law of One" by Ra - 'an humble messenger of the Law of One'. Calculation of other cycles is also verified by the same entity. And who/what is that? Ra is a vibratory sound complex or the consciousness of the letter 'R' as we know it. There are 28 letters in the Arabic alphabet and their vibrations are light configurations that correspond to pure aspects of the Creator. See this chart for their associations by Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi.
Why is the feminine pronoun used to refer to an individual?
As you well know, in English there are three pronouns. Overcrowding text with slashes or parentheses didn't seem right. Using "it" wasn't appropriate either. Among the remaining two, the feminine is chosen due to its metaphysical relation to the differentiated/individuated nature of infinity, which we crudely label as Mr/Ms. whoever. On the contrary, masculine/positive property may represent his/her pure, unbiased, and boundless nature as the humble servant of the Creator. All obey and glorify the One, yet few are awake and the rest are sleepwalking.
