Amazing app! Quick suggestion, though...

Your app is the best thing to use with your play through of Ark! It has all the information one could need for the game. Info on each and every dinosaur, which harvest resources best, where to find resources, the layout of each map, the list goes on. I use this app every time I play the game so I can do things efficiently and quickly. One suggestion that I have, though, to make this app even better would be a place to record what tames we have. Sure, I could just use a notepad and all, but that just feels wrong. A little section to record what dinos we have would be a great addition! You know, and be able to record the levels and stats on it, maybe even be able to add the current stats of each tame in our game in somehow! That part is a tall order if any, so I understand that won’t likely happen. But at least consider adding a list so we can keep track of what dinos we have. Thank you for the amazing app!

Thanks for the feedback! Good idea! This is something I've considered adding. Tracking stats is a huge undertaking though -- it's a feature that I do want to add in the future, however, but adding checklist of dinos would be a good idea. :)

This is better then I thought!

So some of you guys reading this might have seen but: for dodo I submitted something on the taming section at the beginning it said “(im sorry but you spelled encountering wrong)” at the time I had typed that there was only 1 n instead of 2 and guess what! 32 minutes I came back and it was spelled correctly!! Wow! Just wow!

Oh also I love how the developers actually respond usually games have this thing where they only say a few things if it’s a bad review they say something along the lines of “sorry you didn’t enjoy this game please contact us to help us resolve some issues” and if it’s a good review… we’ll you get it. Anyway my point is scrolling through the reviews I was amazed! I saw developer that actually have emotion and effort put into them! And out of the 30,000 reviews this game had almost %0.1 bad views! Just amazing keep up the good work!

Recommended for Everybody!

I began Ark: Survival Evolved about three years ago, I relied on Ark Wiki for quite awhile, it was useful, very useful, but extremely laggy at times.

When I found DodoDex, nothing could have been better! It was so much faster and easier!
After being confronted about DodoDex’s compatibility with in game Ark on mobile, it was even more easy!

++ Uses:
Quick and easy. Accurate and updated. Can be accessed from Ark Mobile with the quick tap of a button, which is extremely useful for when you’ve got pregnant animals and dinosaurs at you feet, and you have no idea when the baby will be born! Oh, and there is also a taming timer, where you can figure out in advanced, or at the moment, you’re taming something, how long it’ll take, and what is recommended for taming use. Much like Ark Wiki, it also shows you how many hits, darts, arrows, whatever you need to knock out a creature, which is extremely useful for newer people to the Ark!

One of my favourite things about DodoDex, is that there’s a comment and tip section where you can sort things by category, showing you people’s tips and comments who help. There’s a special category for Names, even. Which is helpful for people who can’t think of a name. ++

Anyways, this has been a long review, but I hope it helped!

— Lots of Love! Keep it up!

Wow, thank you so much for the extensive review, Nova! This made my day! I just shared this on Dododex's Instagram story! 🤗 I'm glad you like the tips feature! They're always so entertaining to read.

Regarding lagging -- I'm working on speeding up how fast the images load (was actually working on it now when I noticed your review!). The next version of the app should improve the image loading times. If you're experiencing any other lagging issues other than images, could you email me at -- I can look into it!
