Very eloquently written. Potent messages in the form of daily omens. If you've read the book The Alchemist, download this app and take in the daily writings as you would the words of a certain bearded stranger. :) ~ Krishan

I use this app every day to start my day. Love it. Gorgeous graphics and cool animation but my favorite are the energies of the day. Unique… and so spot on! Can't get those in any other Mayan calendar app!

Great information in this app! I have been using it for over a year now, and the energies of the day are very helpful… Very nicely written, almost like poetry, might take a while to really get the terms and symbols and images. But once you do, it's so helpful and beautiful.

Gorgeous visuals. Empowering readings—the daily energy readings weave together both dimensions, the spiritual and the material. Wonderful app for anyone intrigued or inspired by the Mayan Calendar and the wisdom it has to offer.

I don't normally write reviews, but I have to give credit to the designers of this app. As an anthropologist who has spent time with Mayan shaman, I can vouch that the day count in this app is as accurate as I have seen. … I'm retired, but if I still taught, I would require my students to have this app.

Best App for Maya and Mexican Calendar. This app depicts the calendar in an elegant, soulful and useful way. Not dreamspell, this is the real deal and helps you connect with the energies!
MCP Mayan Tzolkin
Since ancient times, the Maya have used the 260-day Tzolkin as their personal astrological calendar. Built on a foundation of 20 day signs (nahuales) and 13 numbers, this calendar generates a series of 260 (13x20) daily energies that are highly applicable to the human experience even today. We hope you enjoy this highly interactive, animated Mayan calendar app.
Please note that this app follows the sacred traditional count of the Kiche Maya, and is in no way related to the "Dreamspell" or "13-moon" calendar, which were invented in the 20th century.
The full series of the Tzolkin's 260 “Energies of the Day” is now available in their complete form—the meaning and essence of each day sign integrates with the meaning of the accompanying number, generating 260 unique energies finely tuned to the realities of modern day life. You can now take the 260 “Energies of the Day” of this sacred calendar with you wherever you go; no Internet connection is required.
Honed over hundreds of years since the Olmecs first began working with the calendar, the sacred knowledge of the Mayan Calendar has now come to our time, having survived a massive campaign of destruction by the Spanish conquistadores as well as multiple attempts to re-invent and re-define it outside of its proper context—and, most importantly, still remains incredibly accurate and relevant to our modern lives and lifestyles.
We built this app to enable you to connect on a daily basis with the energies of the sacred Tzolkin calendar, and to understand the nature and meaning of the Tzolkin’s essential building blocks—the day signs and the numbers. The “Energy of the Day” descriptions are based on authentic interpretations and practices of this sacred calendar that have been made available to us by the Maya of the Guatemalan highlands.
The MCP Mayan Tzolkin mobile app won a Silver Davey Award in Design from the International Academy of Visual Arts.
