I noticed after the last update that when printing the PDF export, it prints blank sheets with the background, but none of the player info. Fix that BIG BUG and I will rate it with 5 stars.
hey i pay you monthly why do i need to pay more for years old material?
This app is slow, and the search engine is lacking. For example, I wanted to look up “rod of rulership”, so I typed exactly that into the search field. I waited about 5 seconds for results (much longer than a web search) and was presented with a list of almost every magic rod. The one I sought was 12th on list. The only reason I would use this app is if I knew I would be without internet access and wanted to download all my content locally. Otherwise the web site does everything better. This goes for character sheets too - the app spreads out the info you need in ways that make it harder to find.
It’s very difficult to use classes or content for books you already own. The app makes you buy their subscription to access some of those features. Because of this, my party has had a lot of difficulty building/playing our characters, especially the higher level we get.
If you don’t have the physical books, this app seems really convenient and is well designed. But as someone who owns the physical copies of the books, expecting me to pay for the book a second time, at full price no less, is just simply not okay. If you have the physical books, this app is not going to provide you a fair service.
I was very hesitant about jumping into the digital world after stubbornly being a pencil and paper player for so long. But it’s so good! It hasn’t hampered my play at all. It’s actually helping me organize my stuff a lot better, keep track of my items and inventory, attunement slots, and everything. And multiclassing? So easy!! I don’t need to worry about figuring out how many spell slots are for what class! If there was one critique it would be that the artificer infusions are pretty clunky. And they only work if you set them up on a browser and not on the app. But in general, it’s wonderful!
I love D&D so much, I just wish it wasn’t as expensive. It makes it hard to buy it. I know it’ll probably just increase with popularity so I don’t expect prices to go down, but it would be nice. I also think that it might be a good idea if you could make it to where if you bought the physical copy, it would unlock the digital copy. Anyway, it’s a great game and I love using it to connected with people!
Absolutely great, really useful on the go. I would suggest making the app with more feature similar to the website.
I started playing D&D again with a friend when lockdown started. We played over Zoom sometimes, but then we started meeting at a public pool in my neighborhood with lights and tables for our games. Being able to have all my characters on my phone reduced the paperwork that was trying to blow away or just warping with the humidity as winter came on. The feature where a DM with a higher tier subscription can share source books with players in their campaign for character leveling saved me money during an uncertain time. Being able to roll dice in the app is great, but I still prefer to do that the old fashioned way. The “extras” tab needs more fanfare! I had been trying to figure out the best way to record all the Wild Shape beasts for quick reference, when I discovered it’s all there in the Extras tab, along with familiars and sidekicks and more. The app is great. Highly recommended. As a mobile app developer, I am impressed that I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a bug. There are features I look forward to for home brew, but that’s a huge undertaking. The free version is all you need until you start to want more than 5 characters. Very generous, and the lowest subscription is a good trade for a trip to Starbucks. I’m happy to see D&D and interactive storytelling with other live humans become so mainstream and popular. One thing I would love to see is codes in the physical books that unlock that content in the app. Even if there’s a small fee. Paying for source material twice is prohibitively expensive.
I used this app to create characters and was surprised at how easy it is. I love the ability to go in and look up your characters and their abilities and spells It’s a time saver. I DM a campaign now and have everyone use this app. Plus there are so many reference guides. I highly recommend this app.
