This is amazing but has yet to meet its full potential...

Dododex is amazing, the people that make the tips, the fanfictioners on there, the helpfulness of the calculators, and what recipes and helps there are are awesome. It’s helpful if you want to tame, breed, kill, or otherwise interact with animals on ark. It’s even prelinked into the the ark mobile game so when you are looking at an animal there’s a button that switches apps over to dododex. That in and of itself in my opinion is far and beyond the duty the dododex creator even asked for by creating such an app and shows his determination to help ark players and geeks alike.
However to reach its full potential it would be good for him to start putting in other features like resource calculators, or overviews about different things like supply drops, animal drops, or artefact rewards instead of giving links to the wiki where we have to dig through it to find this stuff bc it’s not readily accessible. That is the only thing that the Survive ARK Companion has over Dododex. In everything else Dododex completely outpaces it’s competition.
So please start putting those in place because if you did... instead of being just a unfinished gem... it would become a resplendent and priceless gem.

Developer Response ,

Hey! Thanks so much! A resource calculator will be coming in a future version of the app! In the next update, I'll be adding all items, and then in a following update I'm planning on implementing a resource calculator. :)

Thank you so much for the five stars! Really appreciate it! More updates coming later this month!

Some parts of this app are great, and some parts are just… meh 🫤. I’m going to talk about parts that either need improvement or just need to be removed period. 1. First off we have the tips feature. I love it. Only two problems. Number one, tips take like 24 hours to finally appear on the dex. And yes, I did put it on newest, still didn’t show. Only way you can see new posts immediately is to go on the dex website. Number two, the notice saying to downvote and report people that ask for upvotes! This is waaay to far. I understand some people are annoyed people are asking for upvotes. But that doesn’t mean you have to make people report people that ask for upvotes!!! 2. More by this author feature. Again, a very good feature. But. We need it in dyes. I understand that it costs lots of time and money. So if you don’t want to do it, that’s perfectly fine. 3. Impersonators! Impersonators are people that hate FanFictioners so much, that they impersonate the FanFictioners! Can you make it where only one device can sign off as a specific name. For example: FanFictioner: *Names himself Bob Toss* Impersonator: *Sees Bob Toss and decides he wants to impersonate him* Impersonator: *Signs off with the name Bob Toss* Dododex Notification: “This name is already in use by another device, please chose another. Thank you.” Again this probably would cost a lot of time and money. If you don’t want to do it that’s fine! Please respond, I don’t want a bot response. I bid you farewell!

The Dododex is a brilliant app

The Dododex is very helpful to me in a ton of ways first it is awsome how Dododex shows you what you need to tame certain Dino’s. Then the Dododex will show you how to make the certain kibbles needed for the certain Dino’s. It even shows you what different types of Dino’s drop. The idea that someone would research this much about ark so that the players know how to do things on ark is awsome. I love ark so much but sometimes I don’t know how to make certain kibbles or I don’t know what I use to knock out the Dino’s I’m wanting to tame but when have Dododex that’s not a problem at all I really think this app should have 5 out of 5 as the rating using this app is a life saver in so many ways whether your trying knock out tame or make kibble this app is there with it all written down this app is free too this app is probably my favorite to keep out when playing ark it will turn you from a lvl 1 to a 70 in no time so get this app try it out and you might love it.
