Looks awesome but... I see a lot of reviews saying that this is really intuitive but maybe I'm missing something. Can the Dev put together a wiki or something that has instructions. It looks really powerful but it requires more explanation.
Awesome. My only problems have been missing entries in a few monsters' description when I when I click on their special abilities and, more importantly, that when I switch my view from vertical to horizontal and back again the app crashes. One switch doesn't crash it, but two do. I have this on a Hisense Sero 7. Also, I would like it to listen to my "screen rotation lock" setting. ( it turns regardless of whether I have the screen rotation locked or not so that I encounter the crash problem whenever I set it down)
Great DM tool This really helps me out. My only complaints are you can't add class lvl to monsters there is info missing on the description section of monsters. Waiting patiently for updates keep up the good work.
Extremely useful Very nice interface design and it's very convenient to set up fights ahead if time and not have to shuffle papers or crack a book at the table. Just the nicely rendered monster entries alone are worth the price.
Very useful I cannot seem to figure out how to indicate delay and readied actions. Showing which conditions are active on the card would be beneficial (I know there is not that much room but you typically don't have more than a couple active). Would be nice if buffs could be applied as well (like rage, haste, etc). Also the advanced template does not update the ability scores at all (seems to use the quick rebuild rules). Delay and ready would bump this up to 5 stars for me. Heck, I'd even be willing to pay more.
Good app, but not customizable enough I like the app and the concept behind it, but I would love it if it was more customizable. For instance, the monster hit points default to the "average" value in the bestiary, but there isn't a good option to set it to max or to a custom value. I found the option to add bonus hit points, but that did not have the desired effect as after adding bonus HPs it stopped decrementing/incrementing when I would use the inflict/heal tools. I would also like the ability to import my own monsters and/or monsters from the other books. If the dev needs help I might be able to help get new monster files set up. Also, the way it calculates damage seems to be off. I was using it to run a combat last weekend and the app said my NPC got a +7 bonus to damage, but it rolled a damage total of something like 4. How is that possible with a minimum damage of 8 (1 from die roll + 7 from bonus)? Initial rating is a 3. Update with a fix to either thing I mentioned above and I'll revise to a 4...update both and I'll give it a 5.
