Astrology isn’t exactly a science—just ask Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory, who calls it “pseudoscientific hokum.” Does that prevent checking your horoscope from being fun? Definitely not!

iStrology is, as you might expect, a simple and somewhat silly app. It lets you find your zodiac sign using a “birthwheel,” then delivers your personal horoscope based on your sign. It also includes a matchmaker portion which assesses your astrological compatibility.

Each entry is illustrated with an anime-style drawing. You can read “advisory” poems (a little trite, but cute) and see other signs that correspond with your element (Leos and Aries, for example, are both fire elements). You can also check out the mythology behind the different constellation names. The horoscopes are pulled from an online database, and are updated weekly. For a simple novelty app, the feature list is actually impressive. Something to note, however, if you’re finicky about your astrology: the app uses the tropical zodiac.

iStrology is just a diversion—but hey, it’s got decent art and it’s fun to look at the different horoscopes, so if you’ve got time to burn it’s worth checking out. And no matter what Sheldon Cooper says, just because something is “hokum” doesn’t make it any less fun.
