Barely functional
Functions barely adequately as a (slow) card reference. It is tedious and practically useless as an army list builder (no validation, cluttered). Considering its $60 and is far worse than the free app they forced to shut down, I am as insulted as I am disappointed. I will be putting in a request for a refund.

Still can't touch iBodger
Very buggy. The list building utility is a joke. Theme forces are only implemented in spirit with no practical in app usefulness. Clunky interface. A sad day for PP

Under deliver
Slow response time on iPad 1 and iPhone 4. Stat errors on cards. List construction error ( jr caster can't take jacks, units with marshal can't take jacks). As a reference tool, stat error means I can't trust the database. It would be easier to use the cards.

Wow...it's pretty but it's extremely underwhelming. The UI has some serious shortcomings and the list building feature is subpar to say the least. I may not even invest any money into this after playing with the free portions.

Not worth the wait, not worth the money, I miss iBodger even more now.
The only two things this app have going for it are 1) official status, and 2) it's pretty. It has plenty going against it. The UI is counter-intuitive, slow, and cosmetically confusing. It's cripple-ware: you can't build an army without owning cards for that faction. I had hoped that you could build armies galore, but not see cards to reference unless you purchased them. Nope. Prime and Primal are all you can play without spending money. There's no way to track your collection, let alone track the painted/unpainted state of your models. Face it, folks -- if you paint your armies, you probably spend at least as much time on that activity as you do rolling dice and marking damage. This app gives you no way to determine whether you're building a list out of painted models, or even building a list out of models you own. Privateer Press is a wonderful company to play games from. This app makes them look like rank amateurs. It's very disappointing. I had planned to shell out money for all the faction decks (I own over 500 models across seven factions), but I won't until the app is MUCH better. We waited so long for this sad installment, I'm afraid I don't trust the development team to improve the app anytime soon.

Quite a poor start
Building a list is slow and clunky, once a theme is selected, it doesn't tell you what would break the theme, and doesn't take into account any discounts or free models the theme grants. I've found several typos on different cards (gatormen posse: "gain movement" missing I'm assuming '2"') iBodger is much better, and I'll be using it as long as I can. It's a shame Privateer Press didn't seem to take motes from such a well loved app. I'll just use this app for reference. One star for consolidated rules. Another for pics.
