The Runes is an iPhone application for both iPhone and iPod touch based on the respected book, The Runes: A Human Journey by Kari Tauring. Tauring is an author, educator and musician who has been studying the Nordic Runes for more than two decades. She brings a depth of understanding and wisdom to runes and rune readings that is easy for beginners to understand yet still fulfilling for advanced students.
The Runes guides you in doing doing single (Wyrd), two rune (Kona/Mannen) or three rune (Norns) pulls. It also allows you to do a “freecast” of rune arrangements you design yourself and the ability to create Rune Charms you can save to your photo gallery (and then add as wallpaper) or email to yourself. You can also save your readings and email them to yourself or your friends right from the app. Other configurable options include whether or not to include rune reversals when you do your pulls and to listen to a selection of Kari Tauring’s original music as you do your pulls.
You’ll find yourself using this application everyday. It’s like having a bag of runes and a helpful rune guide book them in your pocket at all times.
This application contains the complete text of the Tauring’s book (a $15.95 value). When viewing the rune summaries for any rune, simply select the “Full Text” link to read Tauring’s entire chapter on that rune.
