Ratings and Reviews
Excellent app for FATE
An excellent tool for your fate game. A lot of customizable options for your game and is a must for the GM on the go. Would love to see more world settings added like Andromida Space Opera or any the story's coming out of Evil Hats patreon.
Lots of logos, some bugs
Logos take a while to sit through, die rollers don't have this. Also if you tap the deck too fast, cards get stuck and you have to quit and sit through logos again to fix it.
The app serves up card draw in a way that looks and feels satisfying. That may seem like a small thing, but as anyone who has used their phone as a die roller knows, there's an ephemeral something lost in switching away from the physical. Attention to small details of animation and performance make the card draw feel a little bit more satisfying, and I really appreciate that.
Audience for this is, by necessity, pretty narrow. As someone who plays and runs Fate, I can immediately see myself using this, especially in places where dice may be inconvenient (I'm already pondering LARP uses). If that's not your bag, the tarot-like decks (reminiscent of the Everway deck, for you old nerds) are still fun, but they're pretty small.
If you think this might be for you, it probably is. If you already know it's not, you're also probably correct.
