Great Learning And Visual Tool
This is by far the best app I could find for what I wanted to do -learn by jumping in headfirst and exploring without consistent paid roadblocks. While I have since bought two add-ons I don’t think it’s at all necessary to do so to fully enjoy and learn. There’s tons of options and generally “ok” explanations (I use them as a springboard to google so it’s not really a necessity nor the point of this app). I enjoy the blog (although I believe the RSS subscribe feature is faulty and if it could be fixed I’d love to be able to sub). Really lovely visuals - it’s not tacky or distracting:) I tend to use this more than any desktop option as it’s very clean and easy to separate information out. I really hope the updates keep coming! Right now I wish there was an easy was to see things like Grand Trines and Kites (labeled) as I’m still learning and it’s a bit difficult to decide if what I’m seeing just looks similar or is actually within the reasonable degrees to be considered so but maybe I’m missing something!
Just Keeps Getting Better
There is so much useful information offered for free that I don’t even need the add-ons. But, I purchase them anyway just to support the developer.
Just the Personal Events and Summary sections are pure gold for me.
The only additions I would ask for is to provide more information for the planets on the outside of the wheel such as degrees, and perhaps Nakshatras. Larger glyphs would be nice too. There is so much empty space inside the wheel that is devoted solely to aspect lines that could be better utilized. People familiar with astrology can easily see aspects on their own. Having an option to turn off aspects and add more information on the outside would be awesome. Secondly, providing an Ephemeris add-on showing a whole month at a time would also be incredibly useful and I would gladly pay for that feature.
Love the blog,too! Great job, Denis 👍🏼
Low contrast font w/tiny type = hard to see
I’d give Time Nomad a higher score IF I could read it. Because of the low contrast font color and small size type, coupled with a screen that doesn’t enlarge, makes this Tome Nomad a non-visible app to my 58 year old eyes that use 1.25 magnifying reading glasses. Seems like if your going to use the type and color scheme you’ve chosen you should make the screen enlargable, otherwise you are making Time Nomad useless for anyone without perfect eyesight. Looks like a good program but I can’t be sure because I just can’t see it.
To Gary - the developer - the solution to this problem is SIMPLE. Put all fonts in BLACK ink against a WHITE background. That’s all you have to do - provide contrast so the letters can be seen.
Even if the font size is small, IF the developer provides high-contrast letters (i.e., black letters on white background) then older eyes can read your app. Otherwise, it’s not much use, if you can’t see it.
i hope this reaches the developer
i’ve never left a review before in my life cause i’m lazy and just don’t care. but with this app i just feel compelled. the BEST astrology app in the app store by far. it’s completely underrated. for someone who is studying astrology and keeps an eye on her current transits, this app is an essential!! of course, most people won’t see it’s appeal if they don’t know the basics of astrology but if you do, you need to get this app.
the slider functionality is amazing. and the way it’s laid out on the side with the summary, world transits, personal transits, etc. amazing. organized, easy to use, thank you thank you thank you to the developer. i’ve bought every add on except for the synastry one but once i have money (i’m a grad student😭) i’ll definitely continue supporting you. thank you so much.
Awesome App! Feedback for development
I really love this app for calculating charts on the go and looking at future and past transits and all things lunar. I particularly like to use this app when I’m trying to place someone’s ascendant. This app also introduced me to the concept of fixed stars and some of the less well known asteroids.
It can be overwhelming for someone who is brand new to astrology, but the app is highly customizable, so you can control which features are at your fingertips. For example, you can change orb ranges, limit which aspects are available for viewing (so if you wanted to turn off minor aspects you could), etc.
If you’re thinking about downloading - do it. It’s worth it even though I’m submitting feedback for developers.
FEEDBACK FOR DEVELOPMENT:
- There’s a bug where the wrong forecasting date is shown at the top when looking at future or past transits to the natal chart, and sometimes when you’re viewing the natal chat +/- time
- I use this app to catalog charts so being able to group them or rearrange the order they appear on the left would be super helpful.
- Editing birth data or deleting a chart is not intuitive from a UX perspective since you have to click the add button (edit library > select person). A separate button would be great
Probably my first and only review.

I've never felt so inclined to praise an app until I downloaded this one. The easy to read and beautiful format helped me pick up on reading circle charts fast and isn't messy. I can discern the aspects and glance at them and I love having the option to get more accurate details. The add-ons are nice too and I like that I don't need them to use the app but it adds nice 'flavor'. I frequently delete apps when I get bored of them or feel they're useless but this is a mainstay in my phone. My only wish is that this would have a sister app that would further expand and explain different aspects and tidbits and extensive astro information. I've been searching long for an app to pair with this gem but for now, this app is immaculate. Thank you.
Best free app for intermediate astrologers.
I use Time Nomad every day. This app is not for beginners! It is the only app I’ve ever seen with a Transit Timeline, or Transit Graphs, and I love the feature that allows me to select a transit and then click through to see when it began, when it’s exact, and when it ends.
The only way it could be improved is if they hired people to write descriptions of each aspect, placement, and transit. However, this is a feature of many other apps and sites, so I *can* get that information elsewhere. I consider this the best free app out there for astrology, and it satisfies the geek in me. I have purchased add-ons for this one, asteroids and progressions, but I would pay more to purchase descriptions and interpretations.
CLASSY APP, CLASSIER DEVELOPER
If you’ve been waiting for the ultimate chart-producing app for mobiles since the launch of iPhone and patiently tinkering with AstroDienst, WAIT NO MORE! Download this app IMMEDIATELY and put powerful chart computation at your fingertips within seconds!
TimeNomad combines essential sets of charts with attractive graphic displays and cutting-edge discoveries, including transit charts, progressed charts, synastry charts, composite charts, planetary hours, aspectarians; tropical and sidereal options, minor bodies such as asteroids, Chiron, KBOs; and illuminating points such as the lunar nodes, vertex, and POF. The add-ons are worth the price and enhancements keep on coming!
And speaking of the cool developments, the developer himself shows his professionalism and passion for the craft and his creation by paying attention to feedback and dialoguing with users if errors are found in beta releases, and with speed and dedication too!
This is a next-gen must-have Western astrology tool for any professional. My favorite functionality is being able to isolate specific aspects for pattern analysis and scroll forwards and backwards thru time. Plus, Denis’ professional demeanor has me sold for life. Thank you!
TRIED YEAR 835 / CRASHED APP
I love this app and use it regularly. However, today I decided to test how far the date could go and it let me go VERY far! So I though, why not? Let’s see what the stars looked like then. But it crashed the app, so I had to delete it and redownload it. All the information I had got lost (I managed to get most of it back, since I remembered a lot of it, but i’d rather I didn’t have to do that).
I guess maybe I was asking alot, trying to find out how the planets were taking place way into the distant past. This app is amazing and very helpful but maybe there should be an error message that should pop up if anybody tries to calculate an extremely old date that the app doesn’t have data on, so it doesn’t crash.
No Asteroid Aspects
I’ve just paid for the extended planetary bodies “Add-On” only to find out that, while I get to see the asteroids in my chart, none of them are aspected.
If possible, I would like to see this in the next update, and get some written confirmation that that’s inbound.
If it’s not possible, I would like to ask for a refund of those $8 or so. I’m currently unemployed due to the COVID Pandemic, and am potentially facing homelessness within the next week as I can’t afford rent by any stretch. I know it’s only $8, but that’s gonna mean a lot to me here soon, and... I had really hoped it would give me some insight and help by spending it her on this app. I can get visuals and aspects for those planetary bodies on several other apps for free, but really wanted to see them in context of everything your app has that the others don’t, including PoF among others.
Again, I’d rather know that an aspect update is inbound more than anything. I think being able to interpret my chart more precisely will be great escapism for me while couchsurfing, and interpreting charts for others would be an added bonus for them to let me couchsurf for longer.
Thanks again for all your help, and I hope y’all are holding up okay during all this pandemic business yourselves.
