The best free softwares:
DevaGuru is a cloud based software that will work on any web accessing device.
This will get you started and take care of all calculation needs, but only runs on a PC.
The best paid software:
Sri Jyoti Star
This is beneficial for serious students and those who intend to give astrological readings.
Astrodienst is an online program that calculates the chart in the western circle. It also has sidereal options. I use this to check the accuracy of the other programs when there is a difference. Those who don't have Sri Jyoti Star can use this to make charts for astrocartography.
