About Icon


This is a truly beautiful Tarot: three different decks in the palm of your hand, nine spreads, and a hundred other customizations. Touch the cards—slide, flip, grow, shrink, and arrange them as you wish.

- Beautiful Tarot includes three decks: Rider-Waite-Smith (78 cards), Jean Dodal's Tarot de Marseille (78 cards), and Charles VI (or "Le Gringonneur," 16 major arcana only).

- Use nine spreads and find a path to your own understanding, or arrange the cards as you wish.

- Customize card interpretations: replace any card's historic text with your own, personalized meaning to be used throughout the app.

- Share your reading via email, complete with images and your personal interpretation, or save a screenshot to your photo library.

- Customize the look of your app with different card backs, table backgrounds, and bars (one thousand different combinations are possible).

Beautiful Tarot emphasizes lovely and realistic behaviors of the cards. Use touches to sort, flip, shuffle, and arrange your readings. Above all, delight in the beautiful and meditative aspect of these works of art, as people have for six centuries.
