Disappointing
After months of delays, you'd expect a solid release. Instead, the app we've received is filled with bugs: crashes, inability to view purchased content, inaccurate information, etc... It's as if no one even bothered to actually test it. Even the "fixes" they've released in the first 24 hours have often times been worse than the initial problems. Assuming it *did* actually all work, it suffers from many other problems, like an extremely clunky and slow UI, and a lack of features most of the community wants. The community constantly told Privateer Press they wanted list validation and full theme implementation, and PP constantly said they weren't going to do it. And they didn't (which is ridiculous considering iBodger, which they killed, did all this flawlessly), but it's even worse in that it does literally *no* validation, allowing you to build lists so wildly illegal as to be comical. Perhaps one of the most egregious problems in my eyes is the lack of persistence the app shows. App developers know they have to account for sudden loss of power or crashes, and as such the state of your app should constantly be stored so it can be restarted and you don't lose your data. However, in my initial tests I've had it crash halfway through list creation and the list is completely gone upon restart. But more importantly, for an app that's touted as a replacement to the cards and provides the ability to use the app to track your actual game state, I've had a solo game crash and when I restarted it, the entire game was gone. If this had happened during an actual game at the table, I would have had no choice to forfeit. Some of these problems may be able to be resolved with future patches, but I fear there are fundamental design flaws in the application that will prevent it from being usable without a major rewrite. It's even more insulting that they forced the communities most popular list building tool (iBodger) off the market in anticipation of War Room, and it doesn't do even half of what iBodger did. A complete dissapointment.

Completely non-functional
I can get to the main menu, but nothing works. If they can get it to work it seems it would be useful. I am running this on iphone4.

Does not work
Have never spent more on an app than this. Also have never experienced as many problems using an app. I will never give THG another cent. This has amateur written all over it and was clearly not tested at all before launch.

Won't load cards
I have bought the khador card deck but when I try to load it it shows nothing I just paid 7 dollars for nothing!!! It needs to be updated so that is fixed.

Buggy, hardly any features.
This app is really, really bad. Don't spend money without testing it extensively first. The list building part of the app is early beta quality, tops, and if someone insisted on using the damage tracking part, I'd refuse to play them. It is that bad.
