Teresa Deak, creator of the Gratitude Tarot deck, launches the Gratitude Tarot App
Android and iOS users now have Anytime, Anyplace access to the Gratitude Tarot Deck via the Gratitude Tarot App
Local Vernon photographer and writer, Teresa Deak, creator of the innovative Gratitude Tarot deck, has launched the Gratitude Tarot App. The Gratitude Tarot App is available on both iOS and Android platforms, and offers users an opportunity to experience the beauty and wisdom of the Tarot deck on their mobile devices.
The app features the 79 stunning cards, using Mrs. Deak's beautiful and original photographs of nature, each with a short interpretation and a heart-opening poetic exploration written in Mrs. Deak’s unique style— beautiful brush strokes of words.
Features include five custom designed spreads, a personal journal where users can save, revisit and edit their readings, free-form spread layout options, and audio tracks featuring Mrs. Deak’s live reading of each poem.
The app is currently available in Google Play Store, and will soon be available in the Apple App Store. The Gratitude Tarot App was created in collaboration with developer David Wong, currently of Nova Scotia, formerly of Ottawa. David created the Tarot app software with the objective to collaborate with Tarot deck creators to deliver Tarot apps for the Android and iOS platforms. The Gratitude Tarot app is the second available collaboration after the Tarot Lovers app released in 2012. The two met in a Tarot group on Facebook last fall, and collaborated via email throughout the project.
Discussing the project, Mrs. Deak said "It was vital to me that the app be beautiful. The entire Gratitude Tarot experience is meant to guide the seeker towards their inner knowing through the intimate doorway of beauty. David was able to take my creative vision, keep it beautiful and still make it work on both platforms.
Bringing the Gratitude Tarot to mobile devices makes it possible for seekers to have this unique Tarot experience wherever they are. It gives them the chance to dig deep into the elements of Thankfulness, Awareness, Community and Kindness to experience the spark of connection and deep flow of Gratitude I feel through my photos. "
