Digital Adventures, innovative designers of RPG applications for nearly a decade, is proud to present the first in our line of RPG character sheets under the iCharacter Sheet brand: iCharacter Sheet - 4E. This app contains a detailed character sheet that has everything you need to bring your 4th Edition D&D to the gaming table. No more scribbling mistakes or erasing holes in your paper sheet, the iCharacter Sheet - 4E puts all of your character's stats, abilities, powers, equipment, and campaign history at the touch of your fingertips.
New for v2 of our iCharacter Sheet brand -- Digital Dice! Roll single or multiple dice from d3, d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, and d100! You can also double-click ability scores, weapons, saves, and skills to roll those inputed scores. Our dice interface also allows you to:
* Choose from four different dice colors.

Other features for this app include:
* Five different tabs to input your information: Main (Stats, Attack, Defense, Saves, Hit Points), Abilities (Skills, Action Points, Feats, Languages, Destiny), Powers (all Power categories, Magic Items), Other (Companions, Rituals, Equipment, Background, Wealth), Notes (free form entry for campaign or other information).
* Import an image for your character from any downloaded pic.
* Multi-line entry system that scrolls down to give a larger entry window.

Ratings and Reviews
This is nice for keeping track of character stats withour paper and pencil. However, some of the fields don't edit correctly. Perhaps with later updates it will work a little smoother. Overall I like it better than paper.
Printing/Export Could Be Better
The first thing I looked for after opening the application was the ability to print out the character sheets, because my plan was to manage sheets for my kids in this application and then print them out for our gaming sessions. Apparently the only way to "print" the character sheet is to export it via email, and this seems to be hard-coded to use Mail.app, which is not my default email application. At least you can open the attachment without having to send the message, but it would be nice if this app would export directly to the file system.
The exported character sheet could stand to be formatted better, too; some of the sections which should be viewed together during gameplay end up crossing page-breaks (not a deal-breaker, but annoying).
Also, because it exports the entire thing, you end up with a 10-page printout for each character! It would be nice if there were an option to print out a card with just the stats that regularly change during gameplay.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
