TarotBot Android Tarot Reader

TarotBot is an open source framework for tarot readings on Android devices with switchable card decks and interpretations.

The interface, which re-presents tarot, was designed with the primary goal to only draw from the physical artifacts (the deck of cards) those attributes which are meaningful to the reading: imagery, interpretations, and context. The traditional shuffling, dealing, and arranging of the cards is removed from the process allowing a much more streamlined reading experience to emerge. The experience may lack some traditional elements but conducting readings for one’s self, especially on the go, is far from traditional.

While other tarot apps seek to replicate the experience of tarot cards TarotBot aims to evolve tarot into a new medium.
When tarot is most effective is when one uses intuition to interpret the cards, however interpretations are provided to help anyone unfamiliar with tarot. These are a synthesis of experience and research conducted during development.

Primary research sources include:

The Oracle of the Tarot by Paul Foster Case

Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis

Learning the Tarot by Joan Bunning

Sex Magic, Tantra, and Tarot by Christopher Hyatt

The deck included with the free versions is a vintage 1909 deck with artwork by Pamela Coleman Smith

User reviews of TarotBot Android tarot reader
Good tarot app with solid features like saving readings & a Card of the Day widget. Not as intuitive to use as Galaxy Tarot but has more spreads. Only issue is trying to find good spread position explanations for the more complex spreads.

Works well I particularly like the card of the day widget, as well as the nice selection of layouts. Readings can be saved for future reference. Other decks are available (see other apps by developer-who is very responsive). After 4 years, this is still my go-to tarot app, sometimes even when my cards are handy.
