Coming Soon to AstroConnexions + News

This web page was updated on the  21st June 2024

AC is compatible with iPadOS 17+. From iOS 12+. Landscape orientation only. iPad/Mac only. iPhone coming soon.

Coming Soon (and the Knowledge Base) is regularly updated to reflect the progress of the new features/updates for AstroConnexions that are in development. And to announce when the next release of AC is available in the Apple App Store.

AC does not prompt for an App Store review. If you find the app useful please rate or review it in the App Store, or recommend it to other astrologers/students. This makes a big difference to me and the future of the app. Thank you. I always reply to a review, but be aware that Apple do not publish replies immediately. Replies are initially reviewed by Apple before publication to the app store, so expect a delay.

AC version: 3.01 is now available from the Apple App Store to buy or to update. Please see below for details about ver 3.01.

If you have purchased AC through through the App Store or have used a promo code, you can upgrade/update to all new AC versions via Apple’s App store without any additional cost. AC will always be advert-free and intrusive-free with no in-app purchases. No subscriptions. Nada. Nothing.

The EU Digital Services Act as interpreted by Apple requires me to provide a phone number for the App Store which is displayed in the EU. This phone number is not an AstroConnexions help/support number. Support is only available via email – [email protected]

Please note that via this phone number:

  1. I am unable to supply advice or assistance with buying AstroConnexions.
  2. The AstroConnexions app can only be bought through the App Store.
  3. The AstroConnexions app can only be upgraded through the App Store, or through Apple’s upgrade mechanism.

Any correspondence should be via [email protected]

The EU Digital Services Act as interpreted by Apple requires me to provide an address for the App Store. This address is not an office or a meeting place – it is a private residence.

Installing the AC update

AC will be updated automatically on your device if you have automatic updates enabled; if not run the App Store app, tap your avatar in the top right-hand corner, then tap Purchases, find AstroConnexions in the list of purchased apps, and tap Update. Devices not updated to a recent iOS version show an immediately available Update button.

Tap or click over an image to enlarge. All Coming Soon images/designs/procedures subject to change without notice. Most screenshots/gifs iPad Air 2 or 6th gen (2018) with landscape orientation or from a simulated iPad.

Temporary solution is to switch to Light mode appearance

Unfortunately printing from a Designed for iPad Mac app doesn’t work. Waiting on Apple for a fix. 

Instead AC saves what would be the print-out to a PDF file eg AC Speculum.pdf (date and time of printing is appended to file name) which can be printed by, for example the Mac Preview app.
