Description

This app will teach you to read Mayan Calendar.
Listen to Mayan Priest as he reads each calendar date.

Behold! Speaking Maya Stone Calendar arose out of dust of lost civilization! No one could hear Mayan Date spoken for over 1000 years until now. You have the honor of becoming Maya Calendar caretaker. You will receive Mayan Calendar made of stone rings with carved mayan glyphs. Rings rotate to align glyphs into perfectly organized sequence representing mayan date. Calendar composed of mayan glyphs is a very interesting and beautiful ancient work of art and science.
Calendar, by power of gods, speaks names of the days in mayan language, counts the days since the Day of Creation, predicts the future and provides place for sacrifices to gods. It's 13th period of B'ak'tun has started on December 21, 2012. What will the next B'ak'tun bring? Only mayan gods know.

SOLVE MYSTERY
Become Indiana Jones and decipher the calendar yourself without using internet and books. Calendar consists of 3 different counts or cycles:
* Long Count - is composed of 5 periods, B'ak'tun, K'atun, Tun, Winal and K'in
* Tzolk'in date (counting days of maya sacred year) is defined by symbols on 2 inner rotating rings of the calendar
* Haab' date is defined by symbols on 2 outer rotating rings

QUESTIONS
* How many numbers does each of 5 Long Count periods have?
* Which Long Count period represents day? How many days does each of the other periods have?
* How many days does Tzolk'in year have?
* How many days does Haab' year have?
* What is your mayan date of birth?

Your task is a little easier. You do not have to examine hundreds or even thousands of stone carvings, and collect many possible combinations of glyphs representing date to form the big picture. Our calendar has all you need. If you give up, you can always find answers in Crystal Skull.

What’s New

Version 1.6

Fixed calendar conversion between Mayan and Gregorian calendar to adopt combined Gregorian/Julian calendar system used on new verisons of iOS.
Previously Apple was using proleptic Gregorian calendar system - where calendar date going to the past before the adoption of this calendar on October 4th, 1582 were extrapolated.
Now iOS devices use by default Julian calendar up to October 4th, 1582, next day starts Gregorian calendar with date October 15th, 1582 (instead of 5th - skips 10 days).
Result: App shows Mayan calendar with long count 0.0.0.0.0, 4 Ajaw, 8 Kumk'u converting to September 6th, 3114 BC of Julian calendar system, while previously it was August 11th, 3114 BC.

That's useful when studying history, because historical records dating before October 4th, 1582 use Julian date.
On the other hand not all countries adopted Gregorian calendar on that date, some kept Julian for a few more centuries.
I myself would prefer keeping proleptic Gregorian calendar and perhaps add Julian calendar as another option for conversion, but at the moment it was easier to adopt default Apple's calendar handling.

Fixes for iOS 13:
Fixed user interface layout on screens for iPhone X, iPhone 11 and new iPads.
Preventing crash when trying to expand/collapse playback control in bottom bar.
