Russell Grant launches unique mobile Tarot reading service –

Celebrity astrologer Russell Grant has teamed up with 2K development to provide a new service for Java mobile handset users. Called Astro Tarot Mobile, the service provides subscribers with the ability to experience an intuitive Tarot reading on their handsets. The service is another extension to Russell Grant’s portfolio of technology-based astrology services and is based on 2K development’s service platform, which makes it easy for businesses to create, deliver, and manage mobile Internet services.

For £1.50 per spread, the Java application allows users to have an on-demand comprehensive tarot reading whenever they choose. Subscribers simply download tarot card spreads, store them in their handsets and then read them offline. The service is similar to having a reading with a tarot reader as each position of the card is interpreted in the spread position. This is not the same as traditional mobile Tarot applications where a certain number of cards are drawn and the meaning will be exactly the same for each card, wherever it shows.

Phil McKnight, Technical Director for, said: “We wanted an easy and stress free way to enter the dynamic Java game market and jbag has been the perfect application for us to achieve this. jbag has allowed us to limit our overall development costs, include a greater depth of dynamic content and therefore more value for money for our users - with adequate handset compatibility.”, 2K development’s mobile application service platform, enables businesses to create and deliver branded mobile Java or WAP applications to consumers within days. Suitable for different multimedia handsets from all major mobile handset manufacturers, is a ‘white label’ solution that enables content providers, such as and, to deliver branded, value-added and revenue generating mobile services to their consumers.

2K development’s Karl-Heinz Karpf, said: “More and more content providers are looking to extend their services and brands into the mobile arena, but they don’t want complex solutions that are both time-consuming and risky. With 2K offers them mobile solutions which are easy to use, quick to deploy and provide an unrivalled level of flexibility.”
