Solid App Overall

This is a pretty good app for keeping my sanity at bay while I try to maintain my collection and archive scores. It keeps track of your games from BGG and your scores with friends. It shows your wishlist from BGG too. One issue I’ve been facing is getting every rank for my stockpile to show. Half will show but not all which is irritating when I want to gawk over my Top 100 games. Once that is fixed, I’ll probably change my rating to 5 stars. Regardless of this, it’s been a huge help with my addiction lol.

Pretty much exactly what I was looking for

Been looking for an app like this for a long time. Wanted something nice and easy to use that I could have on my phone for viewing my collection and logging plays, and this does that almost perfectly.

There are still a few little bugs, or small things I would tweak. But for the most part, this is a great app for turning BGG into a mobile friendly interface.

Hi TheBAT754,

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate and review our application and especially for your kind words. It was one of our main goals to have that lightweight BGG experience with an easy access to one's board games collection and simple way of logging plays - we are very excited to hear that you think we have managed to achieve that goal.

If you want to report a problem or have any feedback or a suggestion, feel free to reach out us via email at feedback@progrunning.net. Alternatively, because we are an open source project, you can also head straight to the issues section in our GitHub repository at https://github.com/Progrunning/BoardGamesCompanion/issues where you can create a new issue with your feedback - it does however require a GitHub account.

Great start

I love the potential for this app, but I’m having a few issues. One: I can’t figure out how to ADD a friend, the app just tells me I have none, which is sad and untrue. Also when I log a game I am unable to save a typed score - I have to spin the little number dial thing to get high scores to save.

I really appreciate that it shows all expansions, including promo cards, for every game so I know what I’m missing! And, of course, that it links to my BGG profile. The search function works very well and shows all related items and editions.

It does not deal with typos well for some reason. It highlights a word my phone doesn’t know, but doesn’t allow me to correct it like my phone usually does, so I have to use a workaround to search for games.

One thing that would be nice is to be able categorize and search my owned games by mechanisms.

Hi in need of a nickname,

Thank you for taking the time to rate and write a review / give feedback on our app - it is highly appreciated.

Unfortunately there is no concept of friends in the app - at least not yet. We have introduced an ability to add friends' games to a collection to track these as separate from your own collection. Feel free to reach out to us directly at feedback@progrunning.net to suggest what could/should the app be doing in that space - we are all ears.

Thanks for reporting the issue with entering the scores - we we looking into it right away. We are sorry for your inconvenience.

Thank you for your suggestions, we will add categorizing games and searching by mechanism onto our to do list.
