What's New in Version 1.8.7
+ Bluetooth keyboard commands for switching sessions! Control+` (back-tick) will switch to the next World. Control+1,2,3, or 4 will switch to that World.
+ Bluetooth keyboard movement commands have been tweaked for better compatibility with VoiceOver. The new keys are: Command+←→↑↓ for W/E/N/S, and Command+Control+←→↑↓ for SW/NE/NW/SE.
+ Restored the Bluetooth Keyboard preference and removed some faulty auto-detection logic. When you have an external Bluetooth connected, enable Settings → Advanced → Bluetooth Keyboard.
+ Session logs are now saved as plain text files, both for emailing within MUDRammer as well as downloading via iTunes.
+ Worlds should no longer be marked as unread if the only change is a line that was suppressed by one of your Gags.
+ Fixed an issue when attempting to copy a blank line of text.
+ Fixed a crash related to processing cursor-position commands.
Best Mobile App for MUD's
I've had it for over a year now I believe and it has progressed well. There are many features, including alias', macros, triggers, gags, etc that are stored on your specific MUD profile and you can copy it to others so you don't have to memorize and transfer everything between MUD's. There are two radial movement shortcuts. You can drag the circle in the direction you want to travel, and another circle for in/out/enter/exit, or disable one or both.
The design is sleek and comfortable. There are many color themes and fonts to use. While I personally use Chocolate, all fonts usually looks best against a black theme.
It seems most complaints I would have are based around the small screens and lack of in depth complexity, but since they fit all this content into a mobile app?... Instant five stars!
Best iOS MUD client I could find.
Update: The dev is responsive to requests/questions, and I really like that. Also, it works great with my Bluetooth keyboard, so that's another plus. This app just keeps getting better and better. Original review below:
I've looked at several MUD clients, and they all were missing one major feature in my book. When the text I was typing got to the edge of the screen, the other apps would just continue on, pushing the previous text outside the box. MUDRammer on the other hand extends the text box and puts the new text below the old so I can see it all at once. Keep up the good work, DEV! 👍
This is by FAR the best MUD client for iDevices that I've ever come across. It's packed full of great features; such as having a tiny button to "scroll" up to the command you last entered, so there's no need to type it again and again. You are able to write your own aliases, triggers, etc. Worth every penny. If you want to MUD on your iPad, iPhone, or whatever your iDevice is, this is the client you want. Absolutely amazing!
