No complaint about how you have to rebuy a book even if you already own the physical copy, portability is a good thing. What I am complaining about is how I bought the players handbook so I can look through it whenever I want, but when I try to open it the app tells me I need to free up space on my device. I have 33 gb of free space, nothing takes up that much room.
It does the job but it has its quirks. One big annoyance I found is that you can read source books or adventures in light mode with adjusted font size, but when you tap on links the linked item comes up in dark mode with small font size. (Example - tap Sword of Zariel in Descent Into Avenue). I tweeted about this to DND Beyond but received no acknowledgement.
Somehow they still think 30% of what you paid for already is good enough and it isn’t. Fact that I can pay for every player option,spell, and magic item available and still not have access because I didn’t buy the whole source book thus I’m not allowed to download it is just garbage. They’ve been selling the books À la cart for years now. It’s inexcusable to not let me have everything I’ve paid for.
Still not a feature, so 4 stars until then.
The D&DB team has done an amazing job so far at the app they’ve now consolidated and updated, all content easily reached player sheets and all are working great, as well as listings for all spells equipment and more... I just hope soon itll have app access to the homebrew side of things, while the mobile site works just fine and all it would just be nice to have ALL of my dnd beyond stuff truly in one place for my on the go campaign building. But with how well theyve done i wouldnt be surprised if its already in the works.
First of all, as a character sheet app, this app remains almost useless with no inventory or spell management. Besides tracking spell slots consumed, which the app does manage, inventory management is my most frequent character sheet interaction, and choosing spells is right behind adjusting hitpoints. Second, they recently added the library feature which was previously in a separate app; apparently, they just took the flawed code as-is and dumped it into this app, adding more issues. My biggest new issue is readability of listings, which was poor on the old app, but even worse on this one; at least follow my display preferences set in book mode. This app has the same issue as the last with links covering half the word before and half the word intended, still not displaying who can use spells, still cluttering listings with unowned content (I am completely uninterested in adventure-specific content). Further, they dropped settings such as “Large downloads require WiFi” and “Show installed sources only”. Overall, I’ll stick to the old app as long as it continues to work.
The website has a lot more material that I wish had found its way into the app. Encounter planning, homebrew creation, and the ability to view my players’ character sheets.
Its fine its just that when i tried making a character it said there was an error and it closed me out. Now i permanently have an unfinished character in my character list. I can’t find the option to edit or delete it because i got far enough in the character creation that the character is considered ready to be played.
This is an excellent app to use for online play, such as discord. It’s been beneficial on the go!
But I am confused at why android users seem to be able to manage their spell list/prepare smelts for the day while on iPhone you can’t what’s that about
