Really want to like this, but...
The app still has some issues, but props to Privateer Press and the developer for taking them head on. App is much improved since the initial delivery. With some more work, this could be a great tool for Warmahordes players. Keep making it better PP!

Ibodger was better
Ui seems clunky, cant store army lists, no validation, slow, have to be on wifi no offline I could understand but why not 3g. iBodger was a much better app

Disappointing
Very slow and Can't be used unless I'm on Wifi? Really? They would have been better off not even releasing this app.

Not terrible
My personal experience with this app is very different from what I've read on here so far. I've bought both minions and everblight decks and I have no issues with this app. It loads cards right, most cards are accurate, pleasing to the eye, and easy rules reference. Yes no list validation, but how hard is it really to make sure your lists are legal to tier? Takes 5 seconds to read over tier rules and another 5 to make sure your list is accurate. And load times are easily summed up to art rendering. Thg is also very fast on rules updates an corrections. Only 4 stars because of no collection manager or landscape view (iPhone 4).

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.
