Very nice character creation tool!

This is more than just a random character generator, it is a tool for crafting just the right character for just the right situation. Whether you just need a name idea, or help mapping out a complete character and related family, this tool will get the job done. I personally use this to help with the arduous task of coming up with character details for everything from games that I play to stories that I write. This is very, very helpful in getting me off and running in the right direction! I have everything unlocked and I couldn't be happier, I highly recommend it to all fellow creative folk out there. 😁

The Fantastic Spider-Man

It's quite fun but....

There are some problems, like if you have the app open too long and try to edit a character, it replaces the another saved character with the unedited version of the one you were editing. And sometimes when you purchase a pack, it acts like you already had except you used "restore purchases". Besides those problems it's a good and helpful app for generating characters. I have one personal problem, you have to purchase a lot of things and I think at least there should be more free generators to be able to have an advantage against the competition. All in all it's a very useful app.


Paid, nothing unlocked.

I really like the design of this app. I think it's useful in a lot of ways to me. I thought I'd see how the paid bundles were, so I bought one. It showed up immediately and I figured it was worth the money. I purchased all the bundles for the discounted price which is still more than some apps with teams of people developing them, and nothing. I can't access any of them. The app wants me to now pay for each one. I tried restore purchases. Nothing. All I have unlocked is the one set that didn't come in a bundle. Feeling a bit ripped off here. I tried the app support page but it took me to devs blog not a support site. This would be a great app for writers and rpg players if it gave me what I paid for.
