It wouldn’t be an astrology app roundup if we didn’t mention Co-Star, which has arguably become one of the (if not the most) well known astrology apps available. With an average rating of 4.8/5 stars from nearly 174,000 people, clearly people are loving Co-Star, which offers birth chart analyses, daily horoscopes, and compatibility readings. Just don’t be surprised by the frank presentation of their scopes—their descriptions can be a bit forward. If you’re OK with that, and want to be able to add friends too, this is a great app to consider. The free version gives you access to the majority of the content they offer, with a subscription allowing you to dig deeper into things like compatibility romance.
Cost: Free with in-app purchases ranging from $1 to $10
What our tester says: “I used Co-Star for a few weeks. I appreciated the fact that it gave me insights into the general astrological themes of the moment and how they might impact me. It also had a beautiful display and was easy to navigate. Ultimately, I stopped using it because getting ‘negative’ forecasts put me in a bad headspace at the start of the day.” —Emma L, mbg editorial
