Digital card collection, not an army builder
What it does well: Nice-looking cards, digital damage marking is fun, quick-click rules reference is fantastic, seeing your opponents cards in-game might be nice. What it does not do well: build armies. To quote their FAQ: War Room does not calculate my theme-force tier benefits, allows me to go over point limits, exceed FA, and attach attachments to any unit or model. There is no theme force or army list validation or collection management. For myself, I'm fine with physical cards but came to rely on iBodger as an army builder. I'll probably not spend any money on this app until a lot more functionality is added. Should probably rate it lower, but I don't want to hurt Privateer, and who knows, maybe in time it will live up to its promise.

Ambitious and practical
Does exactly what I need it to do for the price, cheaper than a deck of printed cards and more accessible. The other features are passable and given all the apps virgin shortcomings work fine for the low low price of free. Also, as a new player, the rules prompts right from cards is beyond useful. Slow to load, and prone to crash, it needs some TLC, but I think for as ambitious as it is it's good enough and only likely to improve.

Sad
Sadly, this does not teplace iBodger. The list maker is very poor and has no validation. Points are wrong half the time and does not allow you to add some valid models. Lacks iBodger's collection function. You cannot restrict your list choices based on what you own. Actually you cannot restrict at all, no validation. When they banned iBodger there was an expectation this would replace it. Not so. This is an expensive, slow, clunky, poorly designed app to look at poorly edited cards.

Slow, tedious, needs substantial improvements
A pretty poor app, in fact, it doesn't feel finished. In stark contrast to a proper app, this is very slow and control/interface is cumbersome at best. It looks good, but just isn't a helpful tool.

A great disservice to Customers.
iBodger was a fantastic army building app that was shut down as not to compete with War Room. The problem is that this wretched app can't even compete with a common calculator. Sadly, the only thing this app is good for is serving as a warning for other devs to help them avoid alienating THEIR core customer base. Just awful...

I had all kinds of issues when first installed. Started with crashes and then the deck I paid for disappeared! Kendall worked very hard on correcting this problem and now all is well. If you have a prob with this app just be patient and these guys will put it right for ya
