Ratings and Reviews
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!

Thank you for such a detailed review! Please check RSS feed again, I've improved it a bit and it seems to work fine when checked via Feedly and Newsblur. Your review is a good learning for me and I made some notes for future. There is a new add-on feature coming soon which is rather big and takes time to get it right. Stay tuned and huge thanks for your support!
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 👍🏼

Extremely valuable feedback for me as a developer, thank you for taking your time and writing your ideas! Yes, additional house system requested are being implemented. So are the sidereal systems.
The chart drawing and customizations recommendations do make sense. They are important features for a pro level astrologer. Will certainly put them on the roadmap for future development. Time Nomad has been initially conceived as a astronomical/astrological event tracking tool and is gradually growing to accomodate more use patterns.
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.
