App Status?

Recommended Posts

What is the Status of this App now.   I don't think there as been any improvement in months.

I just played a game with the app and don't understand why players are doing app only.

   - When setting up a Format.   You can't view schemes or Strategy that was generated/Chosen.  You can only view them if already in the encounter.   But we need to be able to view the schemes so we know how to build our crew.  (we have to set a format before we can build a crew or a encounter)

 - When playing in a encounter and you add model,  This really needs to have a option of what models the crew is allowed to add.  

- When playing in a encounter and you add a model,  You can't remove the model. also adding the model is not the same for adding during crew build.  I added 5 extra models to my opponents crew because I was scrolling down the list.

- if you  hit Copy icon,  It requires you to enter a name.  there is no cancel option.  Same if you hit the Name icon.  This is on all the copy and name icons in the app.

Yeah, it's a bit disappointing that development seems to have stopped. Right now it's essentially used as a digital deference for models, upgrades and list building. Which is nice, but there's so much functionality in it that's nearly there but not worth the hassle trying to use right now.

Honestly, I'd have much preferred if they officialised CrewFaux. It's a much cleaner design, works faster, and has a team actively supporting it.

completely agree, I don't know who wrote crewfaux but its just a whole lot smother where as the bad things happen app is clunky and badly designed

I use the app all the time. There were a couple of features I found confusing at first, but investing just a few moments to work it out in my head was well worth it. Great for in-game reference and tracking everything from wounds, to SS use, to conditions, etc.

Yes, a couple of the things mentioned in the OP (inability to remove a model once added to an encounter, the copy naming thing) make me go GRRR now and then. But for a free app, and just $10 to have complete access to every card stat in the game, I'm very happy with it.

They desperately need to change the display so that you can just see all the rules without having to drill into every freaking ability. There is no reason a whole model couldn't be displayed in a single scrollable display.

I’ve got no problem with it’s quirks, like building a crew before knowing the objectives since I tend to know my crew I want to try ahead of time anyway.

However, there’s a few critical issues with tracking during a game. The big one is not being able to attack some upgrades mid-game. For example, Neverborn can’t attach their normal upgrades like Retribution’s Eye and Malifaux Provides mid game. Which is a big problem considering the popularity of A Thousand Faces. Oddly, I’m free to attach something like Ophelia’s ‘Useless Junk’, an illegal option.

The app is nearly there which is why it’s so frustrating that actual development seems to have just died.

Been struggling to use this app too. I paid the extra to get the cards etc but man it’s clunky. I end up just using it as a reference tool instead of an in game app. So much potential. Just needs some small tweaks and there. I’m even happy to be involved as a beta tester.
