Advice wanted

If you were using the free Lite version, would you rather have the banner ad always displaying (not great on small screens), or would you rather have a large ad that pops up every now and then?

Testers wanted

Currently in the middle of coding a reasonably big update which will enable portrait mode on all tablets (previously only available on larger tablets), and will lead the way towards the phone portrait mode. Should also make things just generally a bit nicer to use and also a bit more responsive. It will also have a fix to make the save file keep it's contents between updates. As it had the potential to break some stuff I'm considering doing a test release. Please let me know if you'd be interested in joining in.

Suggestions welcome

Haven't had a chance to post here since the launch of PCGen Character Sheet Reader, but v1.21b has just been submitted and a lot of progress has been made since the original version...

BUT I'd like to make it even better!

I've had loads of great suggestions of features that users would like to see in the app and I have them in so many emails and on bits of paper etc... I was thinking it might be an idea to keep it all in one place, so if you have an idea or request, or even if it's just to say you think something doesn't work quite as it should let me know.

Here's some of the stuff that I have on my "To Do" list:

  • When ability scores are adjusted, alter the DC's of spells
  • Track used items and allow the new ones to be added
  • Allow selecting different spells for Prepared Spells lists (if you want to use different spells you can cast from the known spells lists - but this would be a nice touch)
  • Custom spell lists for different scenarios
  • Track use of prepared spells (currently just tracks based on how many spells you are allowed for that level irrelevant of how many uses of a spell have been prepared)
  • Hero Lab support - currently in development Done
  • Conditions - Sickened etc...
  • Positive spell effects such as Haste etc...
  • Feats like vital strike and class specific features such as sneak attack
  • Update help page to explain attack rolls and spell casting
  • Portrait mode for phone
  • Transfer save file between devices
  • Ability to dynamically switch armour and update AC values
  • Google Drive support

Welcome & Great news!

Welcome to Dysfunctional Apps blog.

I have just launched my first ever apps on Android, PCGen Character Sheet Reader and PCGen Character Sheet Lite.

PCGen Character Sheet Reader is an app for D&D players that offers the opportunity of letting PCGen do all the hard work in creating a D&D character and then the app creates in interactive character sheet based on the output of PCGen.

The Lite version offers the same functionality for free, but with ads-support.
