Battle Scribe app
« on: January 17, 2012, 12:12:26 AM »
I bought the new motorola Razr on friday, so naturally I was looking for apps to download for army building.  Came across Battle scribe and figured what the hell, I'd give it a shot.  Takes a bit of getting used to and took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to get data loaded, but it is actually a cool thing to have!  I have entered in the majority of the lists I am running and don't have to print them out any more.  There are some slight issues with the lists right now, like all the vehicles in the Dark Angels heavy section cost 250pts, but if you are using the app to write down the list and have the codex at hand it isn't an issue. 

They are actually good at fixing problems.  Just went back and checked and they had an updated version for the Dark Angels that fixed that problem.  But as with any program, make sure you have the codex so you know what you are doing.

Anyone else tried this out?  Or am I just super awesome for bringing this to your attention?  ;)

I haven't got the ap (will be looking into it) but do use battlescribe on my computer. Some of the older more complicated/less clear codex's do have a few issues with points and selections but the cool thing is you can edit the codex files with a program that comes with it if you find them to be wrong.

I'm not sure if you can do this in the ap version but I imagine you could alter them with the computer version and then load them onto your phone.

Same here. I find it's great for hammering out a quick idea ('Hey, I wonder what sort of Gargoyle/Gaunt spam I can run at 1250?').
