SUMMARY: Get your daily, weekly, and monthly horoscope with just a simple tap of the screen

Check out appoLearning.com, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

If you're into checking out your horoscope, you're probably aware of the many different ways you can easily find it on a daily basis. But for those of you with an iPhone or iPod Touch, things just got a little bit easier. iScopes is an interesting app that provides you with more than just your basic daily horoscope.

When you load up the application, you're greeted with a sharp looking wheel that you spin around to select your specific sign. If you're new to astrology, the dates for the specific signs are located underneath each name and symbol. If you're lucky, the sign that you want to see more about will be easy to tap. Unfortunately that's not always the case as the wheel doesn't line up perfectly and the signs don't seem to be fully mapped out as buttons. It may take you a bit to figure out exactly how to get into your sign of choice.

Once you've made it in, you'll see over a dozen daily horoscope categories and a good handful for weekly and monthly as well. If you want to compare any of your horoscopes from the previous period for whatever that field is, or see what the next day, week, or month has in store for you, you can. All you need to do is load up the right horoscope and then select the forward or backward button down bottom.

For a free app, it's pretty solid for what it needs to do. There isn't any need for crazy bells and whistles with a horoscope app, but having the signs load correctly with one press would have made things a lot more presentable. If horoscopes are your thing, you probably already have this loaded up on your iPhone.
