[prMac.com] Southborough, MA - Flat Earth Studio today announces its version 1.1 software update for I Ching (Yi Jing), the Book of Changes, for the iPhone and iPod touch. This update includes "A Guide to the I Ching" by Carol K. Anthony of the I Ching Institute, a new "quick" oracle feature, and other minor enhancements.
The Guide, written for the Richard Wilhelm and Cary F. Baynes translation, is included in both English and German, and is the first of several translations and commentaries planned to be provided through this unique app. Carol Anthony is co-author of "I Ching: The Oracle of the Cosmic Way" and many other books on the I Ching (at fine book stores and at www.ichingoracle.com). Book authors and publishers for the I Ching are encouraged to provide content in future updates, and raise the visibility of their books and other services.
Yi Jing version 1.0 was chosen as an iTunes App Store Staff Selection in May 2009, and has received many positive reviews, including:
"Great I Ching app" (five stars) by latice - April 18, 2009, "I like that the makers obviously understand the I Ching; I don't think this is true of everyone who makes an I Ching app. ...a very useful, clever, and attractive app."
"Well designed application" (five stars) by CarneyWeb - April 15, 2009, "I love the way it keeps a journal... along with the analysis."
"Great interface" (five stars) by thinbuddha - May 17, 2009, "I can't wait for an update."
"Fabulous application" (five stars) by Life therapist - June 6, 2009, "... allows me to use it whenever I need to, and in whatever situation I am in. Highly recommended!"
I Ching (Yi Jing) is the definitive mobile version of I Ching, the Book of Changes, done the way it was meant to be experienced. One of the oldest books written has been re-crafted to take advantage of the unique features of your mobile device. One single App contains all of the features you would expect to use with the I Ching, including a question oracle, an integrated journal, and book text in multiple translations and interpretations.
