I enjoy the content, and appreciate the work put into bringing these issues for free. However, I've not once been able to download one of the Best of DM's Guild adventures. The download always fails. Edit: scrolling through the latest news section always sends me to one of the links without me clicking on it. I have had this issue with two different phones now.
Overall not bad, the content is detailed and interesting and is a useful expansion to information in other d&d products. My biggest issue with the app is that there seems to be no function to remember your place in an issue or within an article. Meaning that reading when you don't have time to finish an article is a real pain.
Great app for staying up to date on D&D. I really like the bits of fiction that they sprinkle in with some of the stories to add to the lore of the D&D realms. However, the performance issues prevent this from getting 5 stars. Often the downloads take too long and there is often lag between page switching.
Bad interface, huge downloads. I don't get why it takes a few minutes to download each issue, and there's no cancel button once the process has started. Each issue also promise you free stuff that have already expired.
I'm ambivalent about the content but considering it's free and I occasionally find something interesting I don't feel like I have a right to complain about that. Based on content alone I'd give it a 3 or a 3.5. For me the problem is the user experience. The interface overly complicates straightforward content delivery. That the app is unusable while content (issues or free pdfs) is downloaded is mind boggling. That there is no option to download in the background makes no sense to me. While it remains free of course I'll use it occasionally, but only on days I'm feeling incredibly patient.
Needs access to Location Services? Why? Apps that hog permissions without apparent need or explanation drive me bonkers. Hint. Before starting this app for the first time, Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> Dragon+ > Permissions > Toggle OFF Location. Ignore the warning, it'll still behave properly.
Update to keep downloaded issues when app is upgraded.
