Ratings and Reviews
So far not so good
This is only a collection of a few photos -- four or five for each ship -- with a very poor historical summary of each ship that does not even give types or armament, thickness of armor, top speeds, number of officers and crew. One would expect at least deck-by-deck maps or layouts, but not even the main deck is shown. Maybe it will get better in future versions, but now it is not even worth the few pennies ..........
It does the job...
Yes, it could certainly be better but I give it 4 stars because it did the job it described. Very interesting, good pictures and well written histories. Yeah, you could get this in a book - but not at this price and a book is definitely not as easy to use.
Ultimately, I credit the developer for creating an app which brought me good information. Of course, if there were seven battleship apps out there I might not have given it four stars - but there ain't. If you want to learn about USN Battleships then this is the app.
The concept and general layout of this app is good, but it needs some serious editing. First of all, there are ourright mistakes, such as listing USS West Virginia as BB-47 when the cancelled USS Washington was to be designated BB-47 while West Virginia was actually BB-48. BB-64 Wisconsin is completely missing.
The are also text errors. Whatever software they used to convert their source material was not very good as there are numerous mistranslated characters. For instance, "New York" appears at one point as "Ne.D York" and New Hampshire has "i" number of 12 inch guns. These mistranslations are rife throughout the text.
Also, while not a mistake, some word of the cancelled South Dakota class (BB-49 to BB-54) would be nice.
I hope to see aircraft carriers done next, but not until they fix the problems with this Battleships app first.
Update: They fixed the most glaring error, West Virginia being BB-48, not BB47 and added the missing Wisconsin. It could use some more history editing on the typos.
