Nice companion..a couple of issues though
I've watched the GoT series thru the current season. I just started reading the first book though. There are a multitude of characters and places, it's easy to lose track of things. I needed some compendium of GoT info to help keep it sorted. This app certainly helps. It's not the easiest to navigate at first but I've come to like it. Two things I wish were different are the maps and character pictures. If you want to download maps you have to do it all separately, I wish there was a batch download. I also wish you could full screen the maps for better detail. Also, they do a good job with the character descriptions and also include the actor names from the tv series but it would also be great to have a picture of the actor in the app to help with association. Keep up the good work with this app.
Great app, horrible update
The 2.0 update replaced the builtin maps with downloadable maps. The maps are gigantic, and take forever to download—but they aren't any higher quality than the old ones, and don't have any new information. Plus, you can't download them in the background, or download all with a single click, or anything like that; all you can do is click them one by one and wait for each one. Plus, if you let the phone go to sleep or switch away, the download cancels and you have to start it all over again. Why did they make this change?
Otherwise, the app is still great for quickly looking up a bit of info, and it's well written, and decently organized.
And of course while we're waiting for TWoW, it's got a few excerpts that aren't available (at least legally) anywhere else. Hopefully the same will be true while we wait for ADoS.
Some features I'd love to see:
* Links to awoiaf and/or concordance articles
* List of relevant chapters (as on the wiki)
* Ability to look up any word or phrase on asearchoficeandfire
Thrones book reader must-have
Love the convenience of having quick facts handy when I'm struggling to place one of the zillions of names and places eluding my piss-poor memory. The maps too help me recall what is where when I'm uncertain.
Also, I like having the sample chapters handy. If you don't know what this means, you might notes t this app, or, you're very new to this fantasy world.
