Cool but a little tedious…

This app seems cool enjoyable and helpful and I honestly want to use it as soon as possible, but but there are two small parts that are actually big in the game. The Spell/weapon area and the maps. It would be extremely helpful if all the spells and weapons were already built in with the app and all we have to do is choose the ones each player had, but we don’t have that we have to enter each one individually part by part. And about the maps, you don’t necessarily have to make this feature but it would be very helpful to have premade maps in the app. I am an experienced DM and player and don’t really have the creativity yet to make my own maps it’ll be very helpful if I had some preview of what other labs look like and were able to use them. Or maybe if we just had a tavern or a lake or something or somewhere important, but again it’s not very necessary.

Another go (again)

About a year ago I set out to have my games run solely on iPad. Currently I have found two amazing combined apps. First, Encounter + is not one of my favored because of the subscription they added for a fully purchased app. The interface is far from being user friendly and it has a poor version of a map creator the is difficult to manage. It decent but not close to be being a good app. The unsupported Battle Maps 2, still works on iOS 13. Great for map building but spreading a floor image is nearly impossible and tedious. The controls of characters could be improved such as Encounter+ but is my go to for maps and supports imaging to tv with a players view for free. Game Master5 is intimate for a GM except it’s missing the map feature. It allows for initiative tracking, images, handouts, editing items creatures, etc. before I start this trial again, I got to say I’m a bit excited as I knew there was potential from when they first started. I’ll further my review as I utilize the tool.

And so I’m here again, seems like the map is taking precedence however the tools, with a tutorial, are still not very user friendly. Having created a campaign I can’t even find where to add chapters. Then there’s encounters. I’ll give it a longer wait before purchases, I will admit somethings are very useful but I don’t want to invest in inputting tons of infor just to have an app I can’t use. Ah and the interface won’t fully show on an iPhone XR.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for giving us another try. We’re preparing to go thru a redesign of the UI to make space for future features. We’d love to hear about features that you would like to be improved or are difficult/clunky to use.

Better, thanks

Thanks to this last update it made it a lot more easier to handle and understand. But I am having problems with adding creatures to the initiative and I am not sure if it has to do with the new interface, because I didn’t had that problem before

This is not a good place for a conversation. We can better help you if you contact us via the social options like reddit, discord or email which can be found in the app.
