Review of the App Spellcaster
I downloaded Spellcaster on January 26, 2018. I started right away doing the daily draw of the cards. Every day I get both, the one card draw and the 3 cards draw. It does seem that it is random. It uses the Rider-Waite deck and the meanings are somewhat standard to what the LWB says for them. So, there is no big surprise there.
I did pay for the Rock Guide and the Runes. The Rock Guide has 23 listed rocks, and that has not been updated since I got the app. The Runes are a daily draw or a 3 Runes draw. The meanings are again standard from the Elder Futhark Runes.
I did find under setting that the only thing you could do was either enable or disable push notifications. There are ads Spellcaster. But they are not in the Runes or the Rocks; I think this is because you pay for both of those features.
There is a shop area. I wanted to see if it would update from what they initially were carrying. The first time I looked at the shop, it was mostly Yule Items. It still has mostly Yule items. The App has added Athame, Crystal balls withstand, chime candles, a few books and a couple of Tarot cards. Otherwise, everything is still Yule, as in Yule oils, Yule candles, Yule log pin, nothing in this area has been updated for the Holy Days.
I did order something from the shop this month. I clicked on the “Greek Athame,” and it leads to an Amazon link for that item. The price on Amazon was a bit lower than the price listed on the site. I ordered it, and it arrived in 2 days. I just clicked on the “Yule Log Wood Candle Holder” again, it led to Amazon, and it is not available at this time.
I did sign up for the newsletter the night that I downloaded Spellcaster. I have received two newsletters, both times it was only advertising that I could purchase a reading and gave a link to go to for the reading.
There is an area where you can use a link to get to Blogs. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone, and I can’t read the blogs because the format doesn’t support mobile viewing. If you use the link go to the forums, you can see the blogs and daily videos that have been on the site since 1/3/18, so, there hasn’t been an update. Forums haven’t had anything in them for about six months to 2 years ago.
I am happy that Spellcaster was free and that it only cost me 3.80 to get both the Runes and the Rock shop unlocked. If it had required more, I would have been a bit angry. I think that the person who started this lost interest and has decided to give up on updating anything. It is too bad because there was some great potential here.
