AMAZING app, but one small problem...

Comunist Comrade

So this app is REALLY good at helping you (especially since I don’t know very munch about ark). this app can tell you about what you need to tame, how much you need, and how long it will take. There is one problem though and that’s why I’m writing this review. When you are taming a Dino, it gives you four things you can use to keep the Dino knocked out while taming, but there are other options to keep it knocked out like clubbing it, punching it, and shooting it with tranq related ammo. This is annoying because you can’t substitute the tranq ammo with something like narcotics and I just shoot my knocked out tame with tranq darts most of the time and it screws up the torpor timer that’s on the app. It would be nice to add other options to up the torpor on the app so the torpor timer stays correct. If the devs of this app read this please take it into consideration

Great app but one issue

What I love about this app is it’s near 100% accuracy during taming (b cause server lag can affect it in rare cases)
The issues I have with this app are that when passing the time. If I close the app at any time. It will destroy the torpor timer. So when I reopen it. I’ll find it has 2 minutes left when in reality the torpor is near max and has about an hour of torpor. This can cause unnecessary stress for most people and needs to be fixed. At the time of writing this the app is outdated by about 3 months. So if you’re looking for accuracy in the map system or I’m torpor (fire wolfs have changed) you might want to look into another source. But overall it gets the job done and is reliable In 99.9% or cases as long as the app remains open at all times

Great, but Aberration taming times wrong


I’ve been using this app since I’ve started playing almost 2 years ago. It is a necessary app to tame and breed dinos. I have recently got into aberration and noticed that some of the taming times are off for the dinos that have other map counterparts. My aberrant spino took almost twice as long than the app said. My advice is to watch the food amount and wait until it is at the amount it says instead of watching the starve timer. Creatures native to this map does not have this same issue.
