About Us

Right Alignment is a software venture designed to raise consciousness through technology. Modern society often applies value to external sources while ignoring intuition, and Right Alignment seeks to build tools to bridge this gap. By promoting spiritual and psychological awareness, we hope to inspire reflection into the words people use and the actions they take.

Koa, Right Alignment’s founder, has led projects for some of the world’s largest companies, with a history of writing software for Apple devices since the days of NeXT computers. Chandler is a fine artist and published illustrator with a background in small business management and law. Together, we are building iOS software to redefine mindfulness and elevate our users.

Our Journey

Like many, the 2020 pandemic turned our lives upside down, so we decided to start fresh. We began working on our first app Dvn8™ in July 2021 and released it just under one year later. Ever the self-taught entrepreneur, Koa learned a host of new Apple technologies in order to code our app. Meanwhile, Chandler put down her paintbrushes and brushed up on oracles, patent law, and graphic design. Together, we worked tirelessly for months on end to solve extensive complications in SwiftUI and incorporate all of the desired functionality of a premium divination app.

From the beginning, our priorities were two-fold: to work with Apple’s latest technologies and to create software that would help people connect to their own intuition. As a tarot practitioner, Chandler was interested in building an intimate space for digital practice. Koa saw an opportunity to encourage mindfulness and compassion in line with his Tibetan Buddhist background. Eventually we expanded Dvn8’s scope to include the I Ching and Germanic runes to incorporate dynamic perspectives on personal growth and awareness.

After publishing Dvn8, we turned our attention to PebbleZ™, a lightweight mindfulness app, as well as an untitled project that has yet to be released. We strive to push the boundaries of modern technology in all of our endeavors. As a result, we’re seeking patent protection on multiple projects, including the energy-reading technology we developed specifically for Dvn8 (it’s patent pending!). We believe our unique methods truly make our products stand out. Try for yourself and see!

We hope that our products resonate with you as they do with us, so we invite you to give us feedback and rate our apps in the Apple App Store. As we continue on our journey, we look forward to releasing even more products that provide opportunities for connection.

About Dvn8

Tap into your intuition with Dvn8™ (pronounced “divinate”)! We designed Dvn8 to help you connect with your inner guidance through divination. Our patent pending technology uses ✨your energy✨ to shuffle the cards. So instead of an impersonal random number generator, you can be sure that your readings are influenced by your own actions. How do we do it? Download now and see!

Dive into the wisdom of the tarot and I Ching, all with updated descriptions for a modern audience. Filter your Past Readings using data-rich functionality, or contemplate card meanings through private journaling. Dvn8’s standard Free version contains all of this value and more.

For an even more stunning experience, you can upgrade to Dvn8 Pro through in-app purchase! Exclusive Pro functionality includes runes and features such as fine-tuned Moon Phases, a data Dashboard, customizable tags and meanings, and many other advanced divination settings.

In addition, we take your privacy seriously, so your personal data will never be collected or sold. You can choose to share your readings with friends via social media, or keep your readings private. It’s up to you!

App Features

Dvn8 has so many fantastic features, it’s hard to narrow down! But we’ll try anyway:

  • Spooky Shit: We call our energy-reading technology Gyr8™ (pronounced “gyrate”). This process detects your movements as well as the energy around you and uses this energy to shuffle your cards! This is way more personal than a random number generator.
  • Tools: Dvn8 offers advanced divination settings not offered in other apps, including the ability to pull clarifier cards and create custom tags and spreads. In addition, our sleek Ritual Tools provide an aesthetic way to get precise results from your practice. Sophisticated search features and 150+ original oracle descriptions ensure that there’s always something new to discover.
  • Privacy: Other apps collect and sell your data for profit. We put your privacy first so there are no bad vibes. Dvn8 never collects or sells personal data, and all of your private app data is private to you. That’s a promise.
  • Stay in Touch: Attention-grabbing notifications allow you to learn about a new card each day! Tap to dive into the full card meaning and level up in your practice.

About PebbleZ

Keep track of your Mindful Moments with PebbleZ™! PebbleZ works with Apple Watch and iPhone so you can take your meditation off the mat. Integration with HealthKit means you never miss a mindful minute!

Buddhist teachings describe an ancient technique wherein practitioners would start the day with a small bag of pebbles on their belt. Every time they noticed an expansive thought, they would put a pebble into one of their pockets. With each contractive thought, they would put a pebble into the opposite pocket. At the end of the day, they had a physical representation of their mindfulness and a way to gauge their compassionate thinking.

PebbleZ can help you keep track without weighing you down. PebbleZ is a lightweight app built for watchOS and iOS that provides two functions in one simple interface. Register your Mindful Moments with an expansive/contractive meter that saves to HealthKit’s Mindful Minutes. Use the Meditation Timer for a distraction-free experience that records your heart rate with watchOS and saves your meditation to HealthKit’s Workouts. PebbleZ is supported by all of the complication families so you can quickly access the app from your Apple Watch face.

To get a comprehensive view of your progress over time, use PebbleZ for iPhone. Toggle between data from your Mindful Moments or Meditation Timer to get a glimpse of how your thinking expands over time. PebbleZ’s watchOS and iOS apps sync across devices or can be used independently! PebbleZ also supports Widgets for Lock and Home Screen for at-a-glance viewing on your iPhone.

Meditation and mindfulness looks different to everyone. Whether you’re walking, dancing, or singing, PebbleZ can help you be more present. Develop your awareness of thought and monitor your progress throughout the day, one microdose at a time.

App Features

  • Simple Tools: PebbleZ has two main tools which are easy to use. Mindful Moments allows you to record a thought as either expansive or contractive. How you consider and categorize these thoughts is completely up to you. The Meditation Timer is exactly as described – simply count down your meditative minutes without distraction. Your device will gently alert you with a haptic sensation when the time is up.
  • Visualization: You can easily chart your progress with our iPhone app, which provides a clear view of your expansion over time. Count your Mindful Moments and meditations over the week, month, or year.
  • HealthKit Integration: You can choose to integrate the data you input into PebbleZ with your existing Apple HealthKit interface. This makes your whole wellness journey clearer with the time you spend in PebbleZ saved as Mindful Minutes.
  • Privacy: Other apps collect and sell your data for profit. We put your privacy first – PebbleZ never collects or sells personal data, and all of your private app data is private to you. That’s a promise.
