The limitations are too numerous to list here. Go read about it. Amazingly poor shoddy app from a billion dollar company.
This is absolutely not a free service, at least give the users 10 actions daily so they could try it and get hooked. Marketing for this application is just bad.
The app works perfectly fine. It’s a neat and fun way to check on items you have. It doesn’t have to do much. It’s more like a digital character sheet.
I have 3 characters over 60 and would like to be able to use it with more than one. It is also limited on what you can do unless you pay $5/month and that is a lot. Plus, some of the things it says it can do simply don’t work. I wonder if the developer even tried the app before they threw it out there.
First, the idea behind the app is great! But beware the greed hidden behind this app. First in order for this app to be truly useful you have to pay $5 extra a month to be able to sell on the market. That’s on top of you already buying the game plus a subscription PLUS extra for retainers. But you actually can’t list items on the market without paying a digital currency (kupo nuts) for EACH listing. All of the features should come standard with an existing sub or at least after paying the extra 5. This kind of greed should carry capital punishment. Will not renew the extra 5 for this trash.
Such a great idea! It would be awesome to be able to adjust items and sell things on the marketing board while away from the game. And this app will do that! But you have to pay for each item you want to sell. Don’t make the app free if that’s the case. Or better yet, make it useable for the people who already pay to play the game!
If you want extra retainers then ok that’s all it matters. The only useful side is it allows mogboard to be fuctional well, but SE bans their idling accounts wth.
I had really high hopes when I heard there was a companion app to go along with FFXIV but this app needs a lot of work. First, there shouldn't be a premium version of the app. We paid $60 for the main game, we paid for each expansion and we pay $12.99 every month to play the main game. To pay almost half the monthly price of the main game for a side app is ridiculous. Second, the app does barely a fraction of what it should do as a companion to such a robust game. There is no shortage of content in the game (and the franchise as a whole) that the app could tie into, there are a lot of opportunities if Square Enix would just seize them. I'll try to keep the criticism as constructive as possible. Off the top of my head, here are things the app could do to be better: Allow us to play Triple Triad against NPCs and other players, the logic for the game is pretty simple so it shouldn't be too hard to implement at least against other players. Allow us to manage our Adventurer Squadrons, sending recruits on missions, manage our squadron member glamors etc... Allow us to handle our chocobo companion raising. Allow us to breed racing chocobos in the app. A mobile version of the crafting systems would be awesome, being able to craft items/food while I'm waiting in line somewhere would be great. A mobile version of the fishing system would be good too. If even a couple of those were implemented I think the app would be significantly better. There are some things the app could do that are a bit more ambitious, but could justify charging for the app because they would basically be games unto themselves. For example if there was an RTS minigame with your grand company that you could use to earn gear or seals, or a mobile chocobo racing game. These are all things that would not only make the app significantly better, but help us stay engaged with the main game itself.
We use the free app for all our event scheduling and it has made everything so much smoother for our FC!
