Recently released by Lifeware Solutions comes an absolutely stunning looking moon application for the iPad. Deluxe Moon HD is an app that provides comprehensive information on all things moon related.

Amongst other things it provides gardening advice that differs depending on the current moon phase, precise timings of each moon phase, the moon horoscope and zodiac circles and the ecliptic longitude and latitude. A countdown timer also resides ensuring you can keep an eye on sunrise and sunset as well as moonrise and moonset.

It covers a lot of things, ensuring there’s both scientific advice in the form of the gardening information, and more mystical news thanks to the Moon horoscope and how it may affect your health, business and personal life. You can also learn plenty through things such as an explanation of each moon phase’s full name and how much of the moon is illuminated at any time.

Plus, it’s a great app visually, looking immediately attractive.

Priced at $4.99, Deluxe Moon HD is available for the iPad now and should suit all your moon based interests. While you make up your mind, take a look at the video below of how it all works.

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.
