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.

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.
The app is a little cumbersome, but after getting used to it I'm sure it would be better. For example scrolling through the creatures will accidentally drag and drop onto the map. Really cool features, the biggest problem is importing won't work. I would be happy to even bring this up to a 5 despite some of the awkwardness if I could bolster the content. I have other apps that suffice, but have the import feature working so I am going to have to stick with them. But I will check back after later updates to see if I'll make the switch, I really like the map and sound incorporation - but need to be able to import content.
Its Alright but there is a bit of false advertising
When you look at the images and read the description, this app gives you, it makes it seem as if the map-making tool is easy and free. Then when you download the app it tells you that you must pay for the ability to make a map. There is a free map-maker on this app, but all it does is give you a marker and a white grid. It’s honestly better to draw a map on paper for free instead of having to buy this map-maker and use it on a screen.

We apologize if there was a misunderstanding but this app does not have a map maker. It only offers a battle map feature to play with tokens. You can load map images with battle map features.
However, the battle map feature or using an image with it doesn’t need any in-app purchase.
The map in app purchase offers a convenient way to add custom images with tokens and some convenience features.
