Very disappointed. Waited months for this? They should have bought ibodger.

I would do less then 1star if I could! This ap is slow, NOT free, and a support group that equates to monkeys playing with their excrement. Would not spend 3 hours downloading this app till they get stuff fixed. Bad enough I have to buy updated crap to play the game, but to buy the cards 2 times makes me want to sell my army and invest in bad publicity for privateer press. Do not get !

1 Star
1 star gentlemen. 1 star. This app is slow. Really slow. A great example of the term "Lipstick on a Pig". The lipstick looks nice but its still a pig. The user interface must not have gone through any testing by the app development company or Privateer Press. It is cumbersome to build even a basic list. How some of these simple in your face problems could be ignored is beyond me. Examples. I went to build a 50 point list. I chose my caster. I then start adding jacks. Every time I add a jack it asks me which caster to assign the jack to. What??? There is only one choice. Why must I continue to tell the app that I want to assign the jack to the same, and only, caster in my list? Amateur Hour. And the opposite case. I went to delete components of my list. Every time I went to delete it asked me "are you sure"? Of course I'm sure! Even if I wasn't its not like I'm making a bank transaction here. If I accidentally delete I can just add it back. The app is full of pop ups asking the user "are you sure?". Terrible. The reference section allows you to pick letters like 'V', 'W', and 'X'. There is no data there. Its User Experience 101 folks. Don't show a choice if you don't have data behind it. Amateur. Did I mention slow. I see spinners everywhere. What's up with Free? There is no value to the customer in the Free version of this app. All it does is pester you to spend money up front to gain entry to a terrible user experience. I spent $7 to buy my faction. That is 4x what I am accustomed to spending on an iOs app and the first time I do so I am given a terrible user experience. Here is a lesson in what Free should mean. Free should mean when I first register with the application I choose a faction, the app then gives me, for free, the cards for my chosen faction. In doing so you give me value and show me the faith you have in your own product to incent me to purchase other faction decks. At least the developers were humble enough to put a very accessible Report a Bug link in the Menu. I suggest everyone use this to report usability issues otherwise this is the "best" Warmachine/Hordes app we're going to get. Alright so here are your benchmarks gentlemen. For list building speed and validation there is none better than iBodger. You must build an app that outdoes iBodger in that very simple task. How you missed that mark is beyond me. If you want to give me faction decks then you must be able to beat the speed my home-made PDF of my card collection has. I can search it and load it far faster than the initialization of this app. So I'll add - I'm a fan of PP. I really am. I have well over $1000 into this game and I am sorely disappointed that this is the app they turn out. 1 Star - you earned it.

Not as good as ibodger
Sorry...if I shell out $60 bucks (what it costs if you want all the army cards) for an app I expect a ton. This app is buggy, slow, and much more of a pain to create an army. I would buy ibodger over this if Ibodger were still available. I bet this works/looks better on an Ipad but on the phone is is just clunky. I think the app has gotten worse...I don't know how, but on my iphone I can try to select a unit as many 12 or more times and it won't select. This has got to be the worst touch sensitive app I have every used and that includes all the free crap one downloads when they first get a smart phone and then delete within 5 seconds. It took almost 20 minutes to try to get a 50 point army together and I finally gave up and went back to using I bodger. I know feel ripped off!

Sluggish - wait
This could have been so much more. It's sluggish, you have to constantly log in and it doesn't do list validation. I'd wait until all the bugs are worked out.

War room
Cool pictures of PP's great games. Great reactive customer support by PP in response to the train wreck launch by thg. Having all of the cards and theme tier lists for 60 bucks is nice. But interface is not swipe or drag enabled. But the lists don't support list authentication or tier list changes of options and costs. But there is no collection manager. BUT THQ HAS DISPLAYED SLOW OR INVISIBLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT, as I wait for my emails from launch day and everyday since to be answered, but PP was able to help me.
