There will probably be overlap with other app posts. I’m not trying to say I’m the first to discover these apps or anything of that nature. I’ve included some brief descriptions of why/how regularly I personally use them/how they could be useful and how the app functions.
Amazon Kindle: I have some digital witchcrafty books. If you have your own amazon account, it may be an especially good idea for the discreet witch. Digital versions of encyclopedias are also much easier to carry in-pocket this way.
Angel Cards: The free version only has 2 options, “Message of the Day” and a “Past, Present, Future” spread. The app’s cards are splayed out (face down) for you to scroll through and choose from when you do a spread, and that’s why I use the app despite its lack of free features.
Angel Tarot: The free version of this app is much more substantial than the previous app mentioned. It has a card of the day function as well as 5 spreads built into the app. This app’s divination function also has a user input into the randomization through tapping the touchscreen to shuffle the deck and then choosing the top card with a slide whenever you’re ready. It also allowed you to save your spreads/results to review at a later through a “Journal” function. It does not allow you to take notes on the spread, just archives the result itself.
Cards of Courage: This is a free app that doesn’t offer the entire deck until purchased. There is a Daily Card function, and 1 card, 2 card, and 3 card spread functions. With this app, it chooses a card without any user input (no shuffling/scrolling through cards), but it has not negatively affected its accuracy in my personal experience. This app also has four guided meditations I have not tried to use for it does not interest me.
Crystal Oracle: This is a free app that sort of functions as a magic 8 ball. It takes user input to begin ‘pulling’ an answer. The answers vary from the typical yes/no/ask later. I’ve had varied success with this app.
Galaxy Tarot: A free app with an upgrade option that adds a journal and additional card associations among several other things. This app does not utilize user input for the daily card, but it allows the option for the 6 spreads available.
GardenAnswers: A free app I feel would be very useful for identifying local flora. If a photo of a flower is input into the app, it attempts to match it from a database. It also has a function to ask a horitculturist for advice identifying a plant or treating a plant issue. I have not used this app much, so I can’t vouch for or against it.
Golden Thread Tarot: Cards are generated without user input. The app has a physical deck that can be used in companion. The app offers a journal function that allows the user to input how they feel about the result of the reading when they save it. The app has a daily card function, and offers three spreads for various categories (ex. Love, career, general).
Horoscopes: A horoscope app I use mostly for entertainment. The app has a sign compatibility function that only has m/f options. It also has decent graphics of the constellations which could function as a nice reference.
Inkboard: A simple drawing app I use to create sigils.
Labyrinthos Academy: A fun app that teaches Tarot. The user is allowed to pick between a girl, boy, and nonbinary option for their “player character.” I’ve heard it is very useful for learning the Tarot card meanings, but I have yet to try it much.
MagicBall: An app that requires users to shake their phone to get an answer. It seems about as accurate as the Crystal Oracle app.
Memo: Any note-taking app will do. I’m pretty sure all phones come with one pre-installed. I’ve heard Evernote works well, too. Basically anything that you can use to save your notes even when you’re on the bus or otherwise on the go.
myNoise: This app is made by the same person who has the myNoise website! I 100% recommend this app (and the website which is fairly mobile-friendly) for anyone who needs background noise during spellwork, meditation, divination, or even sleep. Truly amazing stuff.
Phases of the Moon: An app that tracks the moon phase and what sign it’s in. It also has a (relatively unstable) function to set the moon phase as your lock screen/background that is useful for keeping a constant eye on the moon phase.
Planetary Times: An app that tracks the astrological time. It explains what planet’s time it is at the moment and also supplies some horoscope capabilities. It also explains the correspondences and associations of the planets.
Spellcaster: Offers a few basic tarot reading options that do not take user input for card choice (bar selecting a reading). It also has a few spells from the creator’s grimoire, and a daily horoscope. There are more features, but the ones I’ve listed are the free ones. I honestly don’t find myself opening this app much.
Uni Tarot: This app has several decks from which to choose, and the user “stirs” the cards with their touch screen before selecting a card or cards for the spread. It has a large amount of information on the cards, and has a journal function.
Viridi: A calming, meditative digital succulent gardening app (there is also a viridi for the computer) where you weed and water a potted arrangement of succulents.
White Noise Generator: The one I have is an actual stream of white noise. Could be useful for drowning out loud surroundings for meditation or ease in hearing spirits.
