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

Dvn8™ (div•in•ate) verb: to seek your inner truth.

Dvn8 does tarot differently. Tarot apps that use random number generators can feel cold and detached. Dvn8 uses a proprietary algorithm that senses ✨your energy✨ for real, ultra-personalized readings!

Our unique technology allows you to connect to your intuition and find the answers within.

Go beyond tarot with I Ching (free!) and runes (Dvn8 Pro). We’ve reimagined archaic texts so that you can easily relate and focus on your truth. Our updated interpretations contain inclusive, gender-neutral language throughout with an additional non-binary option for tarot.

Keep track of your progress with a private journal and advanced search filtering. Or take your divination practice to the next level with smart tools, educational articles, and more with the Dvn8 Pro upgrade. Dvn8 Pro offers extensive customizations to make your readings uniquely you.

Dvn8 Pro gives you unlimited access to all app features. Study individual card meanings, prep your space with Ritual Tools, or choose individualized color schemes. Map your future with Vision Boards or sync up with Moon Phases all in one app!

And because we’re committed to privacy, you never have to worry about being tracked. Dvn8 doesn’t collect user content or any data that’s linked to your identity — our app is solely funded by your in-app purchases. We’re a two-person team, not a big tech company. Your support allows us to continue developing and improving our products!

What’s New in 2.0?

We’ve given our flagship tarot app a complete makeover and added an Apple Watch component! Our intuitive new navigation bar for iOS simplifies the user experience. And with watchOS compatibility, you can review your readings and their impact on the go.

We added a new tool — Vision Boards! — that can help you picture your future clearly. We’ve integrated educational materials so you can deep dive into divination. We’ve also streamlined our onboarding, reading options, past reading search, and general flow throughout. Contact, Upgrade, and more have been moved to the Settings menu within the Profile tab. We added settings like a non-binary tarot option and accent colors. We also added App Intents so now Siri can help you start a reading or show your top cards!

We’ve also cleaned up some bugs and updated our Privacy Policy. In addition, we retired a few of our subscription options and consolidated them into Dvn8 Pro, which now has alternative pricing options (you asked for it, and we listened!).

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.
