  • Great tool for Streamers Jul 7, 2020

    By Kaymy19
    It’s a great start to mobile character sheets and creation! I’m part of a group that streams our games and we depend on my end to run the stream. So as it is, I use a dual setup to monitor the stream and talk with the party. With the app, I can use my phone to look at my character sheet and still monitor the stream without dipping out of my webcam frame to reopen my sheet on my stream screen. However, I’d like to have options to edit characters that have already been made. But for day one of release, it’s not bad! I’m excited to see what new options come from updates!

  • Great help, but there are a few problems in Beta Sep 3, 2020

    By Canaan Collins
    So I love the D&D beyond website for making characters for my campaigns, but since the app is still in it’s sort of early stages, there are some (but not many) problems I’ve had, more or less just tedious little things. One thing, not currently able to edit anything on a completed character, such as their inventory, gold amount, notes, etc. The only way to do it is to click the website link to do it from there. It isn’t much of a problem, just would be easier and smoother if you didn’t have to go to load the website to edit something or add XP. Another thing is there are a few bugs if you try to create a character on the phone sometimes. I can’t recall what I was doing exactly, but while helping a player create a character, the option they chose pretty much froze the whole process, and then closed the app. When they got back on, a little of their work was saved, but the past 5-10 minutes of work wasn’t. Outside of those problems, I think it is a great app and is still very helpful for running campaigns so no one has to carry around the paper version! Can’t wait for the app to progress even further!

  • Love it and if you love DnDB, you should too Jul 9, 2020

    By Erik Soong
    First, let’s get one thing out of the way: buying physical copies of the books does not entitle you to all the content on DnDBeyond. I am amazed that I am still seeing that nonsense, years after they started licensing the digital content. This is a companion app for DnDBeyond and you only have access to what you have purchased through DnDBeyond. Okay? Get it? Alright, let’s move on. Yeesh. Day 1, the app was stable, though it lacked some features. This was completely fine though, because the app itself linked to your characters on DnDBeyond when you needed to access features that you cannot yet access on the app. The new features are coming, and so far quickly as there have already been significant additions since release just a few days ago like editable hitpoints. No crashes and full features with internet makes this a great start. Being able to fully unplug is on the horizon. It’s also pretty fast. Not as fast as the website at the time of posting, but fast enough to only barely be noticeable. Another win. Overall, I am very satisfied. I do have only one critique and it’s for tablet use. The app treats the tablet like a wide phone, so that does leave a lot of empty space. I hope that future updates moves it to be much like the website. The website on my phone and iPad are very different, but given the device they operate on, it’s hard to say that one is better than the other. That is all. Thanks, DnDB and Fandom Inc!

  • Pretty Good! Jul 6, 2020

    By Ivywhisker
    From what I can see of the app, it’s pretty good! It did take a little while to download, but that might just be because of my device. However, I don’t see a way to roll dice like on the website. This app will be extremely useful, as it allows me to only need one tab open on my computer when I play. It makes it so much easier to access all my character’s stats and info, even if some of the tabs (such as notes) are still under development and can’t be used. Even with two monitors, needing two websites open at the sane time while also having a communication software open on the second monitor can be a little difficult to manage. Thank you for making this app, it’s going to make my life so much easier!! My only suggestion at this point is to add a dice rolling feature like the one on the website.

  • Better than it was Aug 20, 2020

    By Adamsquishy
    The recent changes have made considerable improvement to the user experience. The best change since launch has been the addition of speed descriptions when they’re selected. Not having to reach for additional resources is my biggest “must” in a character sheet application. I would note that spell and item descriptions only come up when in the equipment or spells menu; you can’t view weapon or spell descriptions from the Actions page. I would like the ability to edit my Notes instead of just view them so I could add to them during the session. Toggled check-boxes for spells and equipment still have lag, and while it’s lessened since launch it’s still noticeable. My favorite thing about the browser was the character sheet portrait mode, I could use my tablet and have so much information on a single page. Unfortunately, until the app has a more comprehensive landscape arrangement I won’t be using it in sessions.

    The App seems good, but it not what I was looking for. I personally own just about all of the 5e books as physical copies, and I was thought I could use the app to give me quick access to all of the books without me having to sort through them all, but if I have to repay for all of the books, what's the point of the app. I could just get all of the PDFs and be done with it.

    I really like this app, however when I try to download something from the marketplace if it takes more than 10min to download it will cancel automatically. I'm not planning to invest any money if I'm not allowed to properly download what I just bought.

  • Finally! Then they rolled a 1 Jul 8, 2020

    By Live Life for God
    Finally! I was so excited for the app, that I had to be one of the first to write a review. Then, I actually went into the app to figure out it’s not a standalone app. Howso? The character sheet is awesome. Sadly, all that time to create the dice roller went to waste on the website and hopefully you will incorporate it here. Don’t be so discouraged as the next reason people want an app did not happen. It’s still web based when you create a character, so it’s not just linked but it’s a skin of the website. So you can access the website via the app and get to the dice roller, btw just stay in website view to use your character sheet as the app isn’t fully functional. Really disappointed. To help this along, here is a suggestion, have it linked to pull information from DND Beyond app, to create characters while not online, we already downloaded all that info. 7/8 I like the descriptions added for conditions. Quick tip for others: you can select the link to view you online character sheet within a slightly smaller window, at least it will make you feel like your using the app and you can have access to the dice roller.

    Great idea bad execution. I cannot for the life of me figure out why they decided to display the data the way they do. The books are very hard to navigate, why not have a linked table of contents as a side bar menu? Why tap on the screen to get a quick navigation aid, if you accidently tap on a picture it just gives you a full screen picture? Why are the monsters in multiple formats, in one view it breaks up the block into multiple pages, in other views it looks like the book?

    Updated: Still useless compared to a pdf. Lacks functionality and doesn't allow proper filtering. Searching for features or options is a pain. On the compendium page you can hide sources you don't own, but if you look at any other page it shows a listing of every ability whether or not you own it. Which means it's constantly taking you to a purchase page for other books while browsing the list. Ability info for monster stats is also missing like "engulf" for the gelatinous cube

  • Lots of potential! Jul 7, 2020

    By Golden Robot 11
    Because this app is still in early development, my rating is based on the quality of what’s there, not what they’re still working on implementing. I love that they finally made an easy way to access character sheets on mobile (the website worked fine, but it was still more of a hassle than just going to an app). The features they’ve added so far are great. I can do most of the essential things in the app, and there’s an easily accessible pop up for the website that lets you do everything else. Once this app is finished I’m sure it will be a great way to manage my characters. In addition to implementing all of the regular character sheet stuff, something I would like to see added would be access to my campaigns, so I can see my friends’ characters in the app too.

  • Work in progress, but great start. Jul 6, 2020

    By RWick1
    Always a fan of dndbeyond and their tools. This is a nice, simple, and clean app. For what is there, it seems to function properly and it’s easy to cycle around. I cant seem to manage from the app to “prepare” spells, so I’d have to go to the website and come back, resolving that would be nice. It’d also be nice to integrate backgrounds and frames onto the app as well so all the characters don’t look the same; it’s a little dark as is. I see this growing and becoming a nice alternative for players versus logging in through the web browser as it becomes more expansive.

    Tons of great features making the traditional d&d books much better and easier to use and tons of other features which make playing and dming much more enjoyable. I am colourblind and there is a green background with pink/red buttons on android, the back, home and apps button are impossible to see and hurt my eyes. I haven't seen any other accessibility issues. If they fix this I'd give it a 5*

  • Very good, only one problem Aug 1, 2020

    By BleepBloopYourSongIsntPoop
    I use D&D Beyond a lot to draft up my NPCs and possible PCs, so I really like this app. It’s a convenient way to access and create new characters. However, I have a major problem with it. Once you’ve created the character on the app, or bring it over from the website, you can’t edit the character at all. You can’t level up, add new equipment or even rearrange your spells once the character is made. If this problem is fixed, I’ll have no problem giving the app 5 stars, because it is a real time saver for DMs like me.

  • Great! But I have a request... Jul 7, 2020

    By Satchmo07
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that D&D Beyond finally put this app out there! It’s nice to have access to my character sheets in-app and offline. However, it would be nice to have an option to have all of your info on the same screen at one time (like a regular character sheet, or like the online version) instead of having to flip through tabs. Still, the app seems pretty smooth, and the handoff of my character’s status from the online version to the app works great.

  • Somewhat unsatisfied Aug 10, 2020

    By Mike901120
    Ok first of all, in terms of user interface this is basically just a web browser that only goes to DND beyond’s website. Editing a character is fairly difficult, requiring several steps to even add an item into the inventory. Near as I can tell it also just doesn’t translate character background abilities and features to the user interface. Add into that the fact that this is a feature that users have been begging for and expecting since DND Beyond’s release several years ago and what we get is a half finished effort with no note taking section or description section, and I’m very disappointed in this app. It’s saving grace is that DND beyond has the specific races and backgrounds that I wanted for my character builds, or I would most certainly be using a different app.

  • Great Start But... Jul 7, 2020

    By The big bear Chris
    Hey Guys, I hesitate to give this 3 Stars because I’m so thankful to have it and believe with a few patches it’ll easily be a 5 star app in my opinion. The app, as it is right now, is polished in appearance and very user friendly. However I feel it misses the mark in how you can’t edit aspects of the character sheet or read spell/item descriptions unless you go to “View Character on Website”. This feels like an extra step and almost defeats the purpose of the app. As in, why not just pull up my character sheet on Safari instead? I’m confident this will not be the case it future patches but for now it’s kinda inconvenient and feels self defeating. Hate saying that because, once again, I’m thankful to have this and believe it has great potential. In due time I suppose!

  • A good app that could be great Sep 13, 2020

    By Shadowlucario
    This app has many fantastic reasons to use it but needs way more quality of life improvements to be a great app that I would recommend over a paper character sheet. The ability to edit on the app and delete characters is something that is beyond required. I understand you can go to the site and make edits but if there’s an app for this why make someone visit the site. As well the fixed HP value still seems to roll still rather than give max HD + con mod. Maybe that’s on me for a misunderstanding on the terminology of “fixed” but I still have issues with it. Either way the app is fine but it’s not great, I’ll up the rating if we see better QoL features on future updates.

    This app was great for DMing but for the last 3 months, books would randomly uninstall, and would stop half way through redownloading. Then half of the books I have bought won't let me download them saying I already have the licence but no way to download. I would hope that an update comes which fixes this issue and adds the other functionality of their website (like character sheets) for the time being stay away. There are other apps that do this far better just not as good looking.
