Pocket Tropes - TVTropes in your pocket
By Quang Anh Do
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Pocket Tropes brings TVTropes with you anywhere. You heard it right: You can read TVTropes' content completely offline.
"What is TVTropes about? The wiki is a catalog of the tricks of the trade for writing fiction."
✔ Read a random trope among the 20,000 ones bundled with the application.
✔ Search for the tropes you want to read.
✔ View examples of each trope if you have Internet connection
✔ Swipe to the left/right to go to previous/next trope.
✔ Use Reading queue to store tropes to read later.
✔ Bookmark and share your favorite tropes on Twitter.
✔ View related tropes to any trope.
✔ View list of top 100 most-mentioned tropes.
What's New in Version 2.1
- Add 'Swipe to the right to go back' setting to the Settings app
- Add preliminary iPad support
I know it's an offline app, and that would greatly increase the size, but the examples are the best part... Maybe only making them appear when you're online or something will work.
Maybe that's what the seemingly broken button does...
Edit: it seems if you do something, the Instapaper thing shows up, and you can see them, but there's no way you can close folders. Maybe you can't change that without a different app...
The quality of the app is really good, the control is really easy and simple to use. In recent updates examples have been added for as far as I know all the tropes. With 20,000 tropes actually in the app and not stored online I have found my self amaze at how fast it loads each trope. I love being able to take it out and read them where ever I am.
First of all I'm floored that a tropes app exists. I love to be able to take tropes wherever I go. My reasons for giving 4 stars is because the examples are not provided. I think it would be better if they made this app similar to the wikipedia app, where you save the tropes you want so you have another 70 or so megabytes of tropes you don't care for reading left over.
