Calendar, by power of gods, speaks names of the days in mayan language, counts the days since the Day of Creation, predicts the future and provides place for sacrifices to gods. It's 13th period of B'ak'tun has started on December 21, 2012. What will the next B'ak'tun bring? Only mayan gods know.
Become Indiana Jones and decipher the calendar yourself without using internet and books. Calendar consists of 3 different counts or cycles:
* Long Count - is composed of 5 periods, B'ak'tun, K'atun, Tun, Winal and K'in
* Tzolk'in date (counting days of maya sacred year) is defined by symbols on 2 inner rotating rings of the calendar
* Haab' date is defined by symbols on 2 outer rotating rings
* How many numbers does each of 5 Long Count periods have?
* Which Long Count period represents day? How many days does each of the other periods have?
* How many days does Tzolk'in year have?
* How many days does Haab' year have?
* What is your mayan date of birth?
Your task is a little easier. You do not have to examine hundreds or even thousands of stone carvings, and collect many possible combinations of glyphs representing date to form the big picture. Our calendar has all you need. If you give up, you can always find answers in Crystal Skull.

Maya Stone Calendar was designed based on app found on a device buried in an ancient mayan temple for thousands of years. Read "Author's Story" on
This app has both a splendid interface (displaying detailed and colorful carvings) and an easy to use set of features. Maya time keeping is significantly different from the calendars used in western and eastern countries. A date conversion calculator is necessary to translate dates. Of all the apps in the store this is the one I use all the time. If you have any interest in Maya culture, or ancient time keeping this is an excellent investment.
This dude totally deserves the $2.99. It's 2012!
