Most unintuitive User Experience I have ever EVER seen in any digital product ever. It is a literal puzzle to try and figure out what literally anything in this interface does, and everything one tries leads to ever-more unexplained confusion. It's easier and more explained to delete a deck than it is to load one up for messing around with. I don't know how anyone uses this to make their own games of cards. Why don't developers ever put time into usability / UX / UI 😑

This app is awesome. It has a steep learning curve tho, which can cause many to pick it up and dislike it in about a minute. I actually did give up the first time i downloaded this app, but i downloaded it again and took my time to learn my way around it and i was very surprised and satisfied to see what this app can really do. For those who say this app is terrible, they either didn't take the time to learn it, or didn't care too much to even begin. This is the best app of it's kind IMO.

Updated my review from 3 stars to 4. The devs are always working hard to improve this app, they added something the app definitely needed. It now has the ability to import images straight from your device (pc, tablet, smart phone) or the web, no need to use confusing Json files. It's now newb friendly and I love it!.... Its very easy to import your own card images now. Thanks devs. Im sure I will be updating this review to 5 stars soon given thier track record with updates.

Thanks for trying out the app! Work is progressing on making the app easier to use for non-coders. For now, there is some ability to avoid using json files by following this guide:
