Much better than before... Almost all of the earlier problems appear to have been fixed, except for the tutorial section. The interface for it is inconsistent with the rest of the app, and on my device the font for it remains unreadably small, making it unusable. It would be nice, at the least, to be able to manually choose the fonts and font sizes you want to use throughout the application.
still uses 3.4.3 not 3.6
How bow a random article button? :) Ty for the great app!
Bug The app is great for looking up everything, but one issue I'm having is that the embedded links in the pages simply open up the same page. For instance, I tap encyclopedia->a->ability, any one of the hyperlinks in that entry opens up the ability page again. Hitting 'back' brings me to the previous instance of the ability page. each hyperlink in all the pages just opens another instance of the very same page that I'm on.

Useful but flawed Don't get me wrong, I've used the heck out if this app. Having all my Nethack info together so close is fantastic. Its lacking some really key things though, like a search bar! App state isn't saved when app is paused so if switch to game and back page is lost. And all links in pages are broken. In short, dependable but could be so much more.
Handy little reference Actually, it's a handy *big* reference. As far as I can see, all of the encyclopaedia entries are taken from a popular Nethack wiki site, but it's often easier to find what you're looking for using the app's alphabetical index, and it retains the wiki's cross-reference hyperlinks. I really appreciate having access to the wiki's content without having to be online. With regard to one or two other criticisms that I've seen written: I have an Android phone with a small screen, and the layout and sizing works reasonably well on that. I haven't had a single lockup or crash while using the app. A couple of features that I'd like to see added: 1) Sub-levels of alphabetical index. So navigating to the "s" entries (for example) shows a list including further sub-entries for "scrolls", "sokoban" & "spellbooks" rather than in-lining all "s" entries in a flat list. 2) The source code added and the encyclopaedia's hyperlinks to the code enabled.
