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.
The app is great, the problem is it's more like a shortcut program. A lot of the links go to the website, FB links, Tumblr. Another game I follow, I check all their social media sites automatically. The D&D app is just a browser folder for other sites that get updated with new editions and articles. I also appreciate the comedy, and articles on everything D&D, Neverwinter PC, but I'm wanting meatier content. Tips & Tricks for running games better, running encounters, making more interesting PCs etc.
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.
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.
The content is ok and I don't even mind the download aspect, but the thing doesn't run well. It freezes...a lot.
