A true companion app
This app truly sets the bar high when it comes to companion apps. This is definitely the best companion app I've ever used. If you play Destiny then you should have this app because it's a huge tool that gives so much more to the world of Destiny. If I didn't have this app I would not be where I am today in destiny. This app does it all from finding people to raid with to moving weapons to your current character mid-raid and much more! I only have two complaints though and the first one is with the iPad version. The screen automatically shrinks which is dumb because the iPads screen is bigger so it can have a bigger display... so why shrink it? I just want the app to cover my whole screen so I can use my iPad and this amazing app to all of its potential. I also would like to be able to watch the videos in the app longways instead of having to watch it straight up and down. But overall like I've said a hundred times and I highly recommend this app if you play destiny religiously or not.
New Vault Interface
After reading some posts about the new change with doing away with the "separate window" when taking an item out of the Vault, I couldn't help but laugh and anyone else who reads those prior to seeing it for yourself, look over them. Unless they're moving at a sloths pace or have fingers the size of cucumbers, the new UI is worlds different and extremely efficient in comparison to that of old.
When the Vault was first given access from mobile devices, it was a fantastic utility to have and time saving if you forgot a gun or two. However, if you were transferring 5-6 guns and another 10 item materials, you were still better off going to the tower. But that's no longer an issue.
Instead of having that obnoxious separate window pop each time you wish to move an item, they've added a convenient box that's on the same window with additional options and not to mention, the loading time to process a move is significantly faster then prior. So moving 20 items now is probably faster then trying to move 5 items in the past.
Those who find the old version with a separate window are again, slow and well, just really....slow. It's better in every way possible.
Not Happy With The UI Change in v3.1.9...
First let me start by saying I really like the Destiny App overall, and never had a complaint about it prior to v3.1.9.
I'm simply not a fan of the UI change. Apple has seemingly convinced everyone that the aesthetic of a defined selectable area, or button, is a bad thing. I personally disagree, I much preferred the old versions method of "Equip Item", "Move To Vault". It was a separate pop up section, with easy to identify areas. This is what I want when I'm in an intense moment in the game and I realize I accidentally left a weapon on my other character or in the Vault. Fast to identify, easy to select, big enough to avoid most fat fingers.
Now we're provided with an undefined selectable line of small txt, thank you for nothing Apple! Yeah, it isn't Bungie's fault, they're just falling in line with the rest of the drones that can't deal with defined selectable areas. Such a shame!
Anyway the UI is my main gripe, all the functionality we've come to expect is still there. But here's hoping for a roll back to the old UI! If it ain't broke, please don't fix it!
