Updated review So after reading my first review I decided to give it an update. Now that I am using the correct uplay login on my PC account the app does fairly well on a tablet. But be warned it is a battery drainer. After about running it for 15 mins my Nexus 7 is pretty warm to the touch. It is nice to use while in game for the treasure map references and plotting waypoints while your sailing. The user interface for kenway's fleet could have been better.
Love this app!! My wife and I play games together. She likes to watch the stories of modern games but doesn't like the frustration she gets when she plays herself. So I play for her and she watches. But this app has changed her roll. Now she gets to be my navigator as I play and plot my ships course by selecting where she would like to go next. Her enjoyment has skyrocketed since we discovered this gem of an app. Now she feels more a part of the game. So thank you to whomever at ubisoft thought of this. You have made our game together time far more enjoyable.
Awesome This companion app is amazing. Its a game in and of itself. Its a great way to benefit your AC4 when you can't play at home. All of Kenway's fleet info is there including missions , maps, locations, etc. You can even use this app as a map while you are playing. Whether looking for animus pieces or to keep a treasure map open while you search. If you own AC4 then this app is a must have. I've spent more time on the app than the actual game lately 😉
Cool, when it's works correctly Pretty neat app, only issue is it keeps putting me in Havana (that was my last location when I last used the app) as we speak I'm on Cat Island. When the app connects at start up there is no issue. When I look at my location on the map it puts me at the very bottom of Havana. When I tap the locate button to sync my location with the ps4. All the sudden there's a connection issue. "Waiting for reply from PS4" and the wait is never ending. So I close the app and start up again. Same exact issue... fix plz
Helps with money in game Like the feature of being able to control Kenway's Fleet outside of the game. Nice getting that money when I get back into it! Only issue I have is that there is no way to dismiss messages under the Abstergo/Initiates icon in the menu. I just don't want to see the blinking exclamation point. Also it changes languages, which I find very odd. (Rotates among German, Spanish, French, and English)
Excellent Really enhances the game - who needs Wii U for a second screen experience! Sets a new standard for immersion for games. Only issue, however, is the battery consumption - it murders the battery on my Nexus 5. On the gameplay level, would be nice if there were upgrade paths for the ships you've captured, or at least the ability to level them up by doing missions and battles. But as it is, it's still a great side game. Well done!
