Can I give it a zero...? Even as a companion, it's completely... intellectually challenged. It has a chat and a dice roller. That's about it. Nothing you can't do in person much easier. Requires extra space for additional Barcode scanner and you can't join a campaign without scanning the Barcode in person from your DM. Useless for long distance gaming. Useless for next door neighbor gaming. Useless for in person gaming. You'd be MUCH better off with paper and pencil and I will be removing this app the moment my DM realizes this.
Guys you need to realize this was never meant to give you full replacement of your browser or social contact with your group. Experienced gamers realize this. Its not perfect and was never meant to be. They are a small company and do this stuff in their spare time. Keep that in mind when you use this product. Help your GM get the packages to make your experience better.
This app may be really useful on a BIG tablet. On a 7", I can see chat and pull up my character sheet. However, there is no zoom functionality on the character sheet, so it's a guess as to where you are actually pressing and may fatfinger a different action/attack/spell than you intended. This app also does not install on a phone, only on a tablet, which is unfortunate. I was trying to find a way to stay in the game while traveling for the first 30 minutes, but not having access to the chat made it impossible and I had to back out of the session. With some improvements, this could be rated much higher.
This is a companion, not replacement. Imagine being new and needing tons of help, you can share access. Also a great way to have hidden messages though text works as well, plus the website logs all chat logs and rolls (for later reference if needed). Does it replace an actual sheet? No, but it does offer many useful features.
Great Start Yes, it has along way to go and yes the website makes it seem like it does more than it actually does, but that's because the extras are behind the GM pay wall. Even then I love that the character sheet syncs across the game, easily allowing for updates by both the GM and PC. It also gives you access to all the games notes and the basic rules! I look forward to improvements, but I think it's a great start.
Doesn't do anything useful Doesn't show the map, dice rolling is harder than finding and using my physical dice, chst functionality is buggy. In short, what's the use?
- Fixed an issue where the app could hang while loading some games.
- Fixed an issue where links inside of journal entries did not load the journal inside the correct view pane.
