Hours - a Planetary Hours Calculator for iPhone and iPod touch
From time immemorial people believe that seven visible planets rule days and hours and that they can help in human endeavours if a certain activity is undertaken in a correct day and hour. Nowadays this ancient belief is used by many people to acheve success in their everyday life.
However, calculating planetary hours takes a bit of effort as you need to know the time of sunrise for the given location, as well as the correct sequence of planets. This is where Hours comes to help: it can calculate and display a table of planetary hours for any day in a wide range of years and for any location.
This version comes with a database of about 500 preconfigured locations in almost 100 countries - more will be added with the next update.
There is also another database for your custom locations - you can create and save as many of them as you wish using the new convenient interface.
If you click on the badge below, your iTunes should open displaying Hours.
For more details on what you can do with Hours please have a look at the screen shots and comments below.
If you still have a question, or if you wish to provide feedback, please write to the Author.
