Do you own dnd reference books for 5e? Then this is not good for you as you will need to repurchase that content to utilize this app correctly. Additionally this app does not link to the web page version and you do not get access to character sheets at all. So if you don’t own the books in any form and do not need a digital character sheet this works, otherwise it is a waste of money.
Use the web browser DND Beyond. This app is pointless. Only thing it really gives you access to is the books but it does so terribly. There is no way to return to the chapter select of a book so every book I have bought is now stuck in a chapter and i can not progress. I DM so this literally froze my game until I gave up and through the ipad to the side to switch to the browser on my PC.
I have know idea how to see my character sheets they just won’t pop up how do I fix this plz help love the app just can’t figure this out
DM and Reference friendly, nothing for actual party members. Needs character sheets and like everything else.
Only thing this app is good for is having digital copies of the books. VERY DISAPPOINTED as I was led to understand this app allowed me to create characters and have easy access to character sheets from this app for game days. I was excited to use this app as my digital character sheet. But it does not have that option. You must have data service and be able to go to the website. Very disappointed the app isn’t better. We also wanted to use the app to manage players during game. But there isn’t a DM/PLAYER OPTION IN THIS APP. So much is missing from the app. And I’m not paying 29.99 per book for just a digital copy like seriously.
This is an amazing quick reference app! The only thing that’s missing? Let me access and update my character sheet for IOS!!!!! That would make it perfect
Content consistently doesn’t load, particularly when trying to view monsters or magic items - just get blank content areas. Crashes several times during most sessions of using it. Sourcebooks lack any way to get back to their table of contents, and the "listings" function does not replace a TOC. Homebrew content available on the DDB site is not accessible, which I understand to some degree. If these issues were fixed, I would love this app.
It *almost* does all the things it purports to do. The app/site sub is heavily overpriced for what is available. Not what you’re hoping it will be. Save your money and buy hard copies of what you need and support your local gaming/book store instead.
It’s useless. You have to sign in with google or twitch, which is annoying, and sometimes it won’t work. If you want full access to anything digital you have to buy it, which if you have tha physical books is stupid. The only decent things are the character and campaign storage, but you could do the same thing with google docs and Dropbox They need to redesign the app and make it more user friendly, and really a useful tool. Not just a way to get more money.
Since this app has been upgraded, it has become useless to me.. about a year ago I had this, even typed in Lost mines and HOTDQ (including creature entries to make encounters easier) ... now it seems I’m not able to change stats or create my own info as before..
