Last month I gave the direction to end service on my first app on the iTunes Apple Store, Astrology Zone Premier, which I had started in 2003. We had upgraded that app many times but now, with all the upgrades to Apple's phones, new code was necessary. Many readers wrote to me on Twitter, saying "My app is not working. It seems broken." Those readers missed the posts that I had posted here and in social media, that Astrology Zone Premier ended on November 13, 2013. If you have an iPhone, it's time to download my new app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" It is a free app with the option of subscribing to my longer content for less than a dollar a week. I have explained all in my letter to you, so please see this: http://bit.ly/1bd65B4 and also the FAQ I wrote for you: http://bit.ly/1bd65B4
There was a bug with the new app's subscription for one month, which we found because you were so kind to write and tell me. Phunware instantly jumped on that and was working on that fix last Friday.
Any questions about billing or technical advice, write to my app developer engineer: Jennifer@Phunware.com
Readers on Android or Samsung Galaxy can continue to use their version of Astrology Zone Premier (different code) for the time being.

Libra Horoscope for December 2013
By Susan Miller
Considering recent months, you could use a little good news. That's precisely what the universe has cooked up for you at the sweet and friendly new moon of December 2 in Sagittarius (11 degrees). Keep your suitcase handy, dear Libra, for it appears you will be packing to go. Most people travel close to the holidays, but this month you will reverse that trend, and go earlier, and may be back home in advance of the year-end holidays when everyone else is heading to the airport.
The full moon this month on December 17 also emphasizes travel but this time, if you do leave, it will be to a city far from home. Full moons bring closure and endings, so it seems that you will be home no later than December 21, as all full moons have a plus or minus four days area of influence. This is all the ideal way to plan activities, for late December will bring a slew of difficult aspects, especially for travel, so be smart - if you do expect to hit the road, leave sooner rather than later. I will explain more about those aspects as we get to them, but let's stay focused on your beautiful new moon.
Early in the month, check in with your sister or brother, as the news she or he will have news to share is likely to be exciting, very positive, and not at all what you are expecting to hear. (If you don't have a sibling then look to your cousin, if you have one, for news, or other close kin.)
Speaking of news, the first two weeks will brim with phone calls, emails, and meetings, and as you scramble to keep up keep in mind that everything will slow down by the third week. You may be working on a writing assignment, business plan, or book, getting ready to give a speech, busy getting ready to launch a website or blog, or doing something else that is communications oriented. This is a good time to have your logo designed, or to have the printer make you more stationery and business cards.
The new moon of December 2 will affect the Libra who were born on October 4 plus or minus five days. (If you have a planet that is at 11 degrees of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, you will also feel this new moon and benefit from it, as well as those born Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at the same degree, with a tolerance of five degrees.)
The full moon of December 17 will affect those Libra who are born on or within five days of October 18 the most. Look to see if you have a natal planet of 25 degrees of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius - those planets will be lit up too. Slightly less directly affected but still in line for benefits will be those with planets at 25 degrees Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, plus or minus five degrees.
As an aside, if you have been working on an international matter, involving immigration, passports, visa or green card, or a publishing / broadcasting project, you should see excellent final results near the December 17 full moon. If you are currently in academia, say, and have a major exam coming up or need to defend a thesis near December 17, you will also have something to celebrate.
In the second week of December I would like to point out two days that sparkle brightest will be December 10, when Mercury will receive a beam from Uranus. Shopping will be productive and happy on this day - you may find the perfect item, at the right price. Travel on this day, December 10, a Tuesday, will go exceptionally well, and it matters not if the reason for your trip is for business or pleasure - either purpose is likely to bring success.
An even better day will be December 12, when good fortune Jupiter, now in your house of career, and "work-hard and get long-term rewards" planet Saturn, now in your house of earned income, will create a direct link between your performance and the money you are paid as compensation. This would be a great day to negotiate for salary, to state a fee, or to have a major career interview, presentation, or appearance.
Venus, your ruling planet, will go retrograde for several weeks, from December 21 to January 21. This is rare for Venus to do, for it only happens every two years. Once your ruler settles down for a nap, you may notice that your projects and goals seem to be stuck on hold, and you will need to wait for others to give approvals or money to get things going the rest of the way.
Venus will be in your home, family, and property sector the entire time it retrogrades, so this is the area you may see delays. If you have a renovation going on, the workers may discover a structural problem that needs to be addressed before they can go on. Things like that happen when Venus retrogrades, but you will be glad to know about what the workers found, for they can fix it and keep your home secure. I don't know how you will feel Venus in slowdown precisely, but you get the idea.
Venus rules beauty, design, and good looks, so it goes without saying that you should have any optional plastic surgery that you want to do on your face before Venus goes retrograde. Schedule your plastic surgery in early December or wait until late July.
Why do I say you'd have to wait until the end of July? Have a look at what I am looking at: Venus will end being retrograde on January 31, but Mercury will go retrograde on February 7 to 28. After that, Mars (ruling all sharp instruments, including the surgeon's implements or needles) goes retrograde March 1 to May 19. Then Mercury will retrograde again June 7 to July 1. Bad storms will roll through in the first week of July, so wait until the end of July to have your plastic surgery. That is my best advice.
Uranus will go direct this month, on December 17, the same day as the full moon. Uranus is the natural ruler of your house of true love, matters of pregnancy and children, and creativity, and all these matters will receive a big boost at this time. If you have been hoping to meet someone new, or if you are committed but have had problems with conception, the move of Uranus direct is good news. The same is true if you are steering a creative project forward, as the pace will finally pick up.
Now let's turn to see what Mars will do in December - it's big news, especially for you, dear Libra. On December 7, Mars, the energy planet, will enter Libra for the first time in two years and lend you lots of courage, determination, and drive. Your love life will become more vibrant, too, as Mars will work to make you more attractive - you'll need to deal with all the fuss. Everyone wants Mars in their sign, for it marks the start of a new two-year cycle. You now will have control in matters that are important to you, and you will love the new feeling of sitting in the driver's seat.
Your only meditation now is, what is it that you'd like to see happen next? If the phone next to you were to ring, who would be on it, and what news would that person have to say to you? Write it down, dear Libra! You have until July 25 to give that desire a big push!
Mars will not always be kind, for as the planets rotate around the Sun, you will see, just like in life, some will inevitably tangle with one another. The storms will be rolling in, and the timing is not good. Here goes, I will tell you what I had hoped to hide, but of course, I can't.
On December 24-25, Mars will come into direct 180-degree conflict with Uranus, and that's considered a very hot, difficult, angry aspect. The person with whom you will not see eye-to-eye will be your partner, in marriage or business. The same is true if you are dating seriously - your partner seems to give you news you did not expect or else be exceptionally belligerent. Alternatively, it might be a competitor who makes you see red, but looking at the date, I doubt this would be the case. I think it is far more likely that your alter ego is the person who will take on this role.
A direct opposition like this can cause either an emotional or physical manifestation, which is why I am going to ask you to stay home and be sensible. If you go to Mass or a Christmas Eve party, accept but hopefully it is to be in your neighborhood or better yet, at your house. Do not drink and drive, even a little, and keep your seat belt on. Actually drinking causes people to say all sorts of things they would never say if they had not had that one glass of wine, so you may want to stick to seltzer. Be home early. You may be in fine, alert condition, but I can't vouch for the other cars on the road.
In a completely different manifestation of what happens December 24-25, it is alternatively possible that you will be concerned over a partner's welfare when something comes up out of the blue in his or her life, and in that case, you'll want to have a clear calendar to move in any direction necessary to be of help.
This won't be the end of the tough aspects. On December 29, Mercury (travel, news) will be in hard angle to Uranus. Because Uranus rules your house of new love, and Uranus is IN your committed partnership house, this does not bode well for love and affection. Keep the conversation light - this is no time for the "big talk."
Things will get tenser on December 30, when the Sun will be in hard angle to Uranus, and Mars will be in hard angle to Pluto. Here's where your family will put in their two cents, adding to the unstable atmosphere. You are likely to push back to whomever is giving you a hard time in the family, but that will only add more fuel to the fire, and what makes this so hard, you won't be able to anticipate what comes next. Be diplomatic - it may be hard to do, but it's your best bet. This is one month were the less said, the better.
New Year's Eve brings Mercury square Mars and Mercury conjunct Pluto. Whatever set you off earlier seems to continue. The new moon in Capricorn on January 1 won't help things, but it will bring all the concerns up to the surface to be dealt with once and for all. Go out on New Year's Eve? I don't think so. The days leading to this day will have you feeling depleted, so plan something small and private. Sometimes something as simple as watching the snow fall outside your window with friends or your sweetheart, or if your climate is reversed as it is in say, Brazil, walking along the beach to watch the surf roll in can be the sweetest way to spend New Year's Eve.
Life has proved to be challenging lately, but with the travel possibilities for early December being so plentiful, getting away may bring back a big smile on your face. Traveling out of town will offer you a chance to put daily cares aside and rest. Opportunity to pack and go will arrive at the new moon on December 2, and continue through the first two weeks of the month.
You may also find that you will be negotiating a contractual deal. If so, wrap it up by the full moon on December 17.
Mars will begin an unusually long visit in Libra, starting on December 7, a period of almost eight months. This will give you more control over life's events, and you may not feel as though you've had many. Although, at times, Mars will anger other planets as he moves through Libra, you will nevertheless gain presence and to some degree, greater respect. You will have the chance to turn events to suit your wishes - something new - for Mars will put you at the very head of the parade, and you can lead it anywhere you want to go.
That same full moon, December 17, will find you traveling again, but it seems more likely that rather than head out, you will be returning home. A home- or family-related situation will likely come up in the second half, and it appears that you will be needed to direct others, oversee decisions, and enact solutions. Deciding to stay home for the holidays seems like the right idea.
Uranus will go direct December 17, after months of being in weak retrograde orbit, making this planet of unpredictable events stronger than it has been since last July. This will help Libra hoping to meet someone new to date. If all you've met are duds, you will see a lovely upturn when you start to meet people you could imagine seeing for a long, long time.
As if you did not have enough on your plate, if you are attached, brace for surprising news from your spouse or steady partner too, and it will be news you will NOT want to hear. Indeed, some of the hardest news will stem from your significant other. In this regard, I am addressing Libras in a long-term serious, established relationship.
Venus, your guardian planet, will turn retrograde on December 21 until January 31, and will slow progress on home-related matters. Venus is in your home, property, and family sector - hang on until the end of January. Also, since Venus beautifies, do not make any radical changes to your appearance either - do so in advance of December 21 for best results.
Your career appears to be the one area that shines, so make sure to focus on that, your main event. You might want to lose yourself in your work when things get tense in other areas of life, for by giving your work more attention, you seem to be in line for very positive feedback, and at work you will feel very loved and valued. Moreover, by working hard now, you will generate opportunity in the coming months.
The news you hear between December 24 and 25 will likely make you tense. It appears to stem from a lover, spouse, concern for the welfare of a child, or the ongoing progress of a creative project. It will require a response or fix from you too, fairly quickly, and just the fact that this question is coming up at all will surprise - possibly shock - you. Mars will be in angry angle to Uranus on December 24-25, a very explosive aspect that may bring a mishap, emotional confrontation, or a jarring outburst from a significant other. (Watch what you say, but also protect your health by watching where you walk. Check weather forecasts for current conditions before starting out if driving.)
December 29, 30, and 31 are all very turbulent days for Libra's relationship, your health, and state of mind. Difficulties might stem from a business partner or competitor, not necessarily a romantic partner, but that seems less likely considering the time of the year. Or, it may be that your partner brings news that requires your help and support, and of course, in that case, you will want to provide it to your partner with all the love you have to give.
Keep plans simple for the holidays and stay flexible to allow you to move in any direction at a moment's notice. You might want to stay close to home this month - a good idea. New Year's Eve plans might best include a small dinner party for your closest friends. Keeping holiday celebrations on a small scale this year will feel right.
Dates to Note: Libra
Most romantic dates, and days you can use for other things too: December 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 15, 16, and 20.
The December 2 new moon in Sagittarius will light your house of short travel, but the caveat is that you must travel now, within two weeks of this date, for best luck. Check in with your sibling too, for she or he will have news.
A good day to shop for holiday gifts: December 3 when Mercury will be in good angle to Mars.
You are entering an important phase when Mars enters Libra, December 7 until July 25, 2014. Suddenly you have control. Be the leader you were born to be during this long period!
Lots of surprises are in store on December 10 when Mercury is in good angle to Uranus. Brainstorm, shop, travel, and be spontaneous.
Schedule an interview on December 12 when Jupiter will be in good angle to Saturn. It's a sensational day for you.
On December 17 the full moon in Gemini will bring good news about people and places abroad. Publishing, broadcasting projects, news about academia, or immigration matters (visa, green card, passport) will do well too.
Uranus will go direct after having been retrograde since July 17. Watch partnership and plans for marriage speed up. If already married, plans that you made together will move forward.
Venus goes retrograde from December 21 to January 31, 2014. Venus is your ruler, so hold back on launching big plans. Do no radical changes to your appearance, and hold off on plastic surgery.
On December 24-25 Mars will opposite Uranus, so watch carefully the words you use with a partner. You may trigger a meltdown quite innocently.
The tension continues on December 29 when Uranus will be at odds with Mercury. You won't be able to take back anything that you say later, so be careful.
Things won't improve December 30. Uranus will try to block the Sun, and Mars will be at odds with Pluto. Brace for unexpected events.
December 31 Mercury will conjunct Pluto and both will be at odds with Mars. Suffice to say, keep New Year's Eve plans low key. This is a very difficult week.

Order your tickets now before we sell out! This makes a lovely holiday gift for someone you love, especially if you come, too.
Please note: We cannot guarantee last minute admittance, for the Grand Ballroom will only hold up to 160 persons. The room was chosen for its acoustics, elegance, intimacy, and warmth.

Happy Birthday Astrology Zone!
18 Years on the Internet!
Since December 14, 1995
This is a particularly exciting anniversary for Astrology Zone for this month Astrology Zone comes of age. It is hard to believe how far the Internet has come since the day my site first debuted on Time Warner's Pathfinder website in 1995. The Internet was new, and most sites were in black and white. There were The Onion and The Well websites, AOL.com, Match.com and a few others, but there were not many commercial sites yet. On TV, when I would make an appearance, for years I was not allowed to mention my site's URL because the producers would tell me no one knows what a URL is yet.
It was exciting. None of us knew how things would develop, but each of us who started back then were eager to be part of the caravan of covered wagons heading metaphorically to Silicon Valley. After three years of exclusively licensing Astrology Zone to Time Warner, I had to leave because AOL had purchased Time Warner. I then switched my exclusive license of Astrology Zone to The Walt Disney Company, from March 27, 1999 until September 10, 2001. At that time, I moved Astrology Zone to my own servers and hired my own team. After six years on the Internet, it was time to become independent.
I had learned a lot from the time I had spent with Time Warner and The Walt Disney Company. I have always owned my site 100 percent and preferred to bootstrap rather than go for venture capital. All these years, I have had fun growing my dear Astrology Zone. Now, coming to my 18th anniversary on the Internet, it is time to do something special. I have a big announcement! Here it is!
Astrology Zone now has a separate website in Spanish!
This is a dream come true, as for the past ten years I have sought the right partner to work with me on this dream. I carried that dream in my pocket, hoping I would meet precisely the right investor to help me get my plan underway. I write a lot (that's the good news) and I write a lot (that's the bad news, especially when you have to translate those words). I hoped to find someone who came from South America and who spoke Spanish as a native language. All my dreams came true when, at my annual event at The Three West Club, I met the ideal person to work with me. My Spanish website has been in development for a year, and throughout 2013 I had with many meetings here in New York and conference calls to the team to South America. We are ready to show you all that we have done.
Please let your Spanish speaking friends know about my new Spanish Astrology Zone site because I want to hear their feedback on Twitter @AstrologyZone and on Facebook (Susan Miller).
We will start my new Spanish version Astrology Zone on December 2, the date of the glorious new moon, which will appear in New York City at 7:22 PM. After the new moon appears, we will throw the switch! Here are the URLS:
A New Service: WiFive.us
Don't we all love a bargain?
In December, when each of us are busy and shopping for gifts, we all want to know about the deals being offered nearby in our neighborhoods to save money. I found a way when a brilliant entrepreneur, Luis Sanchez, came to see me to show me he had developed a way of seeing all the various deal-of the-day websites that are featuring discounts on food, entertainment, boutiques, and other establishments, all in one click. Traveling? All you need to do is enter the zip code of your new neighborhood as you travel each day and you can see the deals that may be just across the street from your hotel.
The company is called Wifive.us and is ready to use today. It is a New York-based startup with a location-based search engine that gives you access to thousands of local online deals in a single site.
For now, Wifive.us is only available in the United States. It covers most of deals services you would see from various sources, (Groupon, Amazon, Google deals, and so forth), all at once, so you don't have to go from site to site to find a deal that appeals to you, as Luis would humorously say, "until your head hurts." There is no registration necessary, and no useless emails to stuff your inbox each day.
Just type your address or ZIP code and get the deals you want when you want them. You pull in your information, which is far better than having many emails pushed to you. Try it and like the service on Facebook!
A word about the web address of Wifive.us
You may be wondering, what exactly is .US?
You might have thought the domain ending .us would only be only for government agencies and schools, but since 2002, individuals, businesses, churches, and non-profits have adopted .us web addresses to make their mark on the Internet. The .US is a new domain ending.
Just remember the name of the new service that no doubt you will be using quite a bit: pronounced as "wi-five-dot-us" otherwise seen as:

The Year Ahead 2014 Astrological Calendar By Susan Miller
Calendars are used to mark time, but have you ever had a calendar that helped you use your time productively? Search no more - Susan Miller's The Year Ahead 2014 Calendar can do just that. Susan has built up a buzz on the Web due to her accurate advice for when to launch ventures and when to hold back. She writes every word herself in this stunning calendar with original fine art by socialite, author, and fine artist Gloria Vanderbilt, mother of newsman Anderson Cooper, and great grandchild of railroad entrepreneur Cornelius Vanderbilt. (Grand Central Station was originally her great grandfather's business headquarters.)
Gloria Vanderbilt, now almost 90 years young, licensed the reproduction rights to her critically acclaimed artwork to Susan Miller who self-published her calendar. The inks are rich, the paper heavy, glossy, and snow white, allowing Gloria's paintings to jump off the page. Each month, from January 2014 though the extra bonus month, January 2015, is found an inspirational quote from Gloria, centering on her philosophy of living life fully and creatively. With fourteen of Gloria's paintings, this calendar will soon become a collector's edition and will not be reprinted when stocks are gone.
Aside from having happy, vibrant art to look at all year, The Year Ahead 2014 calendar has many other uses, unlike any you have had in a calendar before. On every important day of each month Susan lists the aspect and what it means, in easy to understand laymen's language. This means the next time you are about to make an important appointment, and the VIP asks you, "Do you want to come in Monday or Thursday?" you can say you will consult your calendar, and know immediately the day to choose.
In a year like 2014, where sparkling aspects will stand side by side difficult ones, this calendar will not be a luxury but a necessity. Susan Miller enthusiasts will treasure this gift, and friends who have never heard of Susan will become fans quickly too.
Also included in the calendar are:
- All the start and end dates of the retrograde planets in 2014,

An Important Announcement to iPhone Users from Susan Miller:
Goodbye to My Former iPhone App on November 12, Hello to My New One:
"Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!"
This month, I am ending my Astrology Zone Premier App, which was initially developed in 2003 and upgraded in 2005. I am replacing it with my new iPhone app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" now available from the Apple App Store. Many of you have already downloaded it and have given me very positive reviews. Thank you!
We had announced the end of Astrology Zone Premier in September's Astrology Zone, but I realized that may people do not see Twitter and Facebook and may have missed my posts. I asked Phunware to continue to support Astrology Zone Premier through the difficult-for-many month of October, so that I would be with you, offering inspiration to you during that time. This extra time would allow everyone who has an iPhone a chance to download my new app and subscribe so that they would not experience any interruption of service.
If you purchased "Astrology Zone Premier" for your iPhone sometime from 2003 to early 2013, that app will now be retired on November 12. We quietly removed "Astrology Zone Premier" from Apple's App Store months ago, in anticipation of this changeover. My original, older app has not been available for purchase for the iPhone for months, to make sure no one would buy that older app, only to hear it was being discontinued.
The good news is that Astrology Zone Premier is being replaced with my newer and more robust app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" currently available from the Apple App Store. It will work on many versions of the iPhone (including version 7.02) and most versions of the iPad. You can download it for free. Simply search "Susan Miller" in the Apple App Store to find it.
If you have grown fond of my former app with my long daily forecasts and are sorry to see that app go, you can still get the same high quality long, daily forecasts as you always did at a low subscription fee. You will have a choice of what length of time a subscription you would like to buy.
You can choose the yearly option of $49.99, which works out to be less than $1.00 a week - less than the price of a cup of coffee. Some readers may opt for three months for only $12.99. You will find a list of options.
No Advertising, Ever, on Upgraded Subscriber Version of my New App
Many of you asked that I not run advertising on your app, and I agree with your thinking - if you subscribe, you will never see ads. However, advertising will continue to run on the free version of my app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" to help support it.
Menu of Costs to Subscribe - Chose the Subscription Best for YOU.
If you choose to upgrade to my subscription version, which you can do inside the free app as you use it, you will find a list of fees. All fees are stated in US currency.
My New App is Chock Full of Information You Need to Plan
Get 425,000 Words a Year of Daily Horoscopes for All 12 signs!
If you subscribe, you will continue to get my typical 425,000 words a year for your robust daily horoscope, prepared with love, by me, fresh every day. Many readers are surprised that I publish so much text on my cell phone app, but indeed, that's the word count for a year's worth of daily horoscopes for all 12 signs, the equivalent of ten books! You won't be limited to one sign when you get my app - free or by subscription - you can always easily read for your Sun sign, rising sign, and any of the 12 signs of friends and family each day by going to the app's front screen.
Sunday's (Subscribed) Long Forecast is Always for the Week Ahead
In terms of the daily horoscopes I write, when I write each Sunday's forecast, I look at the entire week ahead, not just the day, as has been the custom in published horoscopes in the US. Make sure you read your Sunday horoscope, for those forecasts are extra long and comprise much information to help you plan your week.
Extra Content Like Important Dates You'll Love
That nearly half-million word count does not include the many extras you will get by upgrading as well. You will ALSO get the evergreen content I write (content that describes your personality) on the app - such as the wildly popular Matchmaker Guide that is 65,000 words. Evergreen articles are informational and never go out of date.
See "Important Dates" (far left on the menu bar in the lifestyle section) to check dates for your current month and beyond before you schedule any key appointments, interviews, or presentations. You will know your best days at a glance. That section took me five months to write for you. I feel you will love it.
Little Alerts From Me, Daily
Also, each day you will get a reminder alert from me that appears on the face of your iPhone, saying, among other things, that your daily horoscope is ready for you to read. Many people tell us they love getting that little message from me each morning. If you prefer to turn the alerts off, you can do so in your iPhone settings.
Read My MONTHLY Astrology Zone report that you have come to read on the Internet on both versions of my App:
Free or Upgraded by Subscription
You have told me that you enjoy reading the AstrologyZone.com monthly horoscopes that I post on the Internet at the start of every month. You told us you want to have my long monthly Astrology Zone forecast on your iPhone, too. You will continue to be able to see your report on your app, on both the free and upgraded versions. Every iPhone user will have my monthly Astrology Zone report in his or her pocket to refer to as the month progresses.
If you have my new FREE version of my app and like it, as is, and you don't mind the occasional ads you see, you need do nothing - you will continue to receive my short daily forecasts for all 12 signs each day, seven days a week. They are my bits of chocolate that I prepare for you. As said, paid subscription or not, you will also still be able to read my monthly AstrologyZone.com forecast on your iPhone.
If you want more daily horoscope information, then you will enjoy my advertising-free long daily horoscopes (75 to 80 words per sign per day, and often longer) for the low cost of $12.99 for three months on your iPhone, as one example.
New Social Media Features on My App
We have added new features to my new app that we feel you'll enjoy. On my new iPhone app, you will be able to go directly to my Twitter account from your iPhone, where you will find me posting notes nearly every day @AstrologyZone. You can also go directly to my Facebook page from my app. (To find either social media account, look for the blue star on top of the screen in your app.) We plan to add other new features in the second version of my app - we have lots of ideas!
Android and Samsung Users: A Heads Up On What's Coming
If you are an Android or Samsung user, for the time being you will still be able to use the app you have now, "Astrology Zone Premier," which is completely compliant with your Android or Samsung cell phone. We are currently writing code for the new FREE version for these phones, and that app will be identical to the one that iPhone users have now. That changeover will occur within a few months, so please stay tuned. When it does, my former, older app, "Astrology Zone Premier," for Android and Samsung will eventually be retired, too. You will be informed in advance.
If you DO NOT have an iPhone, Android, or Samsung smart phone, you can still get my daily horoscopes to your E-Mail on Daily Astrology Zone!
You can get the identical horoscopes I write for iPhone, Android, and Samsung Galaxy cell phones - for all 12 signs each day (just as you can on my app) - sent to you by email daily. My forecasts are long - 75 to 100 words each day - and would be readable on your computer, tablet, or any cell phone by subscribing to Daily AstrologyZone. For more information, and a sample, go to www.DailyAstrologyZone.com
Ending My Former App Took Courage, But Allowed Me to Continue to Give You Premium Content
It was a hard decision to end Astrology Zone Premier, but my choices were limited: 1) Close down my former app and do not offer an app anymore, because costs to maintain it were growing; 2) Lower my quality of the forecasts (never an option I ever considered); 3) Continue to give you the very best in premium horoscope content that I write, and for that, charge a reasonable subscription fee. After reading your comments and critical reviews of my new app in Apple's App Store, and seeing that your reviews were so positive, I chose to go the subscription route.
I hope you will continue to support my app, as the funds you send help me to keep my website AstrologyZone.com free for one and all. For those who can't afford to subscribe to my new iPhone app (or for any other reason choose not to get a subscription), you will still get my other, short, free forecast for 365 days a year.
My App Made Top Ten Subscription Apps in ITunes under Lifestyle
My new app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" ranked #1 of most popular app in the Apple App Store under LIFESTYLE on September 9. (These ranks change daily - often hourly!) Your level of enthusiasm gave me the courage to let go of my old app and ask Phunware to write code for an entirely new app.
To sum up, Astrology Zone Premier will no longer be supported starting November 12, so you might want to download my free version of "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" today. (Searching simply for "Susan Miller" should bring it up immediately.)
Your present app, Astrology Zone Premier will not automatically change over to the new free app, so you will have to download it. Once you have it, you can decide soon if you would like to upgrade to the version you've come to know and love by looking inside the app and buying the subscription inside the app. If you do so soon, you will avoid any disruption in service. If you should have to reload and reinstall your app, you will not lose your subscription.
If you have any questions or need help, you can write to Jennifer@Phunware.com and Jennifer will be happy to help you.
