What's New in Version 1.7.0
- Fixed a bug which could cause the app to hang while loading some games.

Garbage and an embarrassment
I joined the pro membership solely for the ability to use this app and the app is non-functional. After you log in it hangs in "loading" forever. I let it load once for 15 minutes just to see what would happen, the answer is nothing. I couldn't get the stupid app to even load. Now I am aware that this is a very limited and bare bones app that is severely lacking in features, but all I really wanted was to view my character sheet on my iPad to free up space on Roll20 on my laptop. It couldn't even do that. This is unacceptable for the app to be so abysmal that it can't even open. The devs should be ashamed and they should remove this app until it's out of the Alpha stage and ready for prime time.
Has promise, but clearly needs improvement
This app is disappointing compared to the web site, but, rome wasn't built in a day, and battlefield multiplayer was always bad when it first came out, the developers need to give this app more bandwidth for the connection, add in a map, and lower the crash rate of the game, there are games out there that have more advanced graphics and they can support multiplayer, these guys just need to update it a bit more. The app is usuable for irl games when you are sitting at a table, and using the shaped dnd template with your own game gives you youre own unlimited assistive dnd characters
People need to know what this app is supposed to be.
This is not supposed to be an app that lets you play the entire game. This is just designed to be a supplement to the game. A dedicated character sheet screen, or chat screen.
As the GM of my group I use this app all the time.
That being said, it could use more functionality. But as a programmer myself I get having demands and limitations.
