Today I am going to get to the bottom of things and take myself out to dinner since I have an Android phone and there is finally an Android variation of the popular Co– Star astrology app. The FOMO can now come to an end for Android users who have actually not had the ability to get the frequently snarky, always meme-ready insights from one of the most popular iOS way of life apps. The app introduced today after much anticipation, including a big new audience section to its devoted following.
” There were over 120,000 of you on the waitlist, and yes, we read every single among your DMs and e-mails,” the company said in a statement of the new Android app. “The truth is, Co– Star is simply eleven humans, and we wanted to get it right.”
For the uninitiated, Co– Star is not your basic feel-good foreteller. It’s does not try to sugarcoat things for you, simply put. One piece of current guidance: “You should have better. Dump the Aquarius who ghosted you, convince the Capricorn roomie to let you embrace a pet, and we’ll take care of your horoscope.”
The Brink profiled the company last year after Co– Star raised $5.2 million to establish the Android app, and co-founder and CEO Banu Guler stated she saw astrology as a kind of “cumulative self care … this idea of structure relationships with each other and taking care of each other.”
The company is proud of how it differs from other astrology apps: “Unlike the broad and unclear horoscopes you normally read in magazines, we take more than just your sun sign into account. We utilize a complete picture of the sky when and where you were born to create hyper-personalized horoscopes.” And unlike old-fashioned horoscopes from the paper, Co– Star states it also incorporates NASA information “translated by humans” into a mobile-friendly interface that attract its target millennial audience.
