An excellent companion guide

The information in this guide is all or mostly correct, from what I can tell. It looks like the developers are good about keeping information up-to-date. The UI is simple but looks nice, and everything is intuitive and easy to use. The aesthetic is cute, and the convenience of having all the information you actually need on your phone without having to scour wikis or gaming articles is very nice, especially while playing. You can even get notifications for when one of your villagers is having a birthday!

My only complaint is really the sheer number of video ads. I understand that all apps these days have ads, and that’s fine. Banner ads are easy to live with, and the occasional video ad is okay. But with this app, I’m getting video ads every four taps, which is just silly. I’ve gotten a few video ads which simply do not load, forcing me to force-close the app and restart. This may be the fault of the advertiser, not the developer. Of course, you can always pay to get rid of ads, which I will probably do. But if you’re not willing or able to do so, and if having video ads on average every 12 seconds annoys you as much as it annoys me, it may be best to stick to using a wiki.

Overall, I would definitely recommend it!

Great Potential!

I LOVE Animal Crossing and I really appreciate the efforts the developers have gone through to make this companion!

I rated it 4 stars for now because there is incorrect information in some places, like the bagworm, as well as some wildlife straight up missing, like the sturgeon and no fossil section. I paid to remove ads to support the app, and I'm confident that the developers will update the missing and/or incorrect information.

I'll definitely update this review and rating to 5 stars when all the information is correct. It seems like the New Lead wildlife is what's in this currently, which is probably mainly the same and suffices for now.

I also assume that the countdown will be removed because clearly that points to this app was being released before the game released, so I'm sure there is an update coming soon for that. But I would also like to see, second priority to fully accurate information, is a tightened and cleaned up interface and to remove the slide/fade in from the right for text. I like the usage of the Animal Crossing font, but I personally think the app would just look nicer with a more basic font style that's maybe white or yellow with perhaps a brown or wooden looking background.

Keep up the great work!

Developer Response ,

The app has been updated with more accurate data from New Horizons. The New Leaf data was used as a placeholder until the new game came out. Check it out! Note: It may take a little more time to get all the accurate catching times for bugs and fish

Great app, but needs more

This app is a great way for me to keep track of bugs and fish I’ve donated to the museum. As far as I can tell, it has all of them listed. I feel, however, that it would be a nice addition to have fossils and art listed as well so it’s easier to keep up with what I’ve donated and what is still missing without having to make my own checklists for them. Also updating the calendar and events is pretty important if you’re going to include the feature.
