Exactly what it says on the tin
It's the app that goes with the website. It's nice to have the tropes handy if/when I'm offline. The button in the lower right corner gives you the option to visit the corresponding page on the website to view the examples. The "Back to Tropes" button in the upper left corner handily takes you back to the app again. Kind of a long time since the last update, but the app works well.
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.
This is a great app for reading Tropes! Easy to add tropes to your queue and view examples online, however I do have one bone to pick with it: you cannot disable the "swipe" feature. This gets annoying when examples open up in a browser window and I need to swipe over to read them. As soon as I try to to move over a bit to read, it takes me to the next or previous trope!
