    I think this app is great for what I expected it to do - it is a visually stimulating fantastic mobile database and digital damage tracker. Don't expect the app to do things it doesn't claim to do. Plusses: Great visuals - Seeing the virtual cards really help me piece together ideas over simple text and incomplete information. Quick Reference Rules - No flipping through the stereo instruction-type rulebook. Virtual Damage Tracking - Much easier and cleaner than marking cards. Theme lists - I like being able to see what a theme list does w/o having to carry around books or open webpages. Negs: No theme list or contract filtering - I understand allowing people to build any army they want, but if I want to be limited, actually limit me. Unnecessary connecting for solo games. - I love being able to use the app in solo mode, but I see no point in connecting to the server if I am not sharing information. I am using an iPad3 and have been able to share lists, and I do not crash unless I let my battery get to 10%. Don't listen to ridiculous complaints without knowing their systems and situations. This is a great app that will continue to get professional support for a very complex database. Definitely give it a try, expect errors on older devices.

  • Great App May 31, 2015

    $7 for an army that gets updated every time new models come out or $30 for a book plus each expansion book? I would recommend buying all of them. That way you never have to ask your opponent to see their cards or "what does that do?" You can also use your armies that you create so you never have to carry cards around. Each unit has the same front and back that the cards do and you can track wounds. As to the 1 star reviews, you might want to become a better informed consumer before trashing a product that you clearly have no idea how to use. You must attach warjacks to your warcaster using the paper clip in the top right of your warcaster entry.

  • War Room has been working fine Mar 5, 2013

    By BeastRabban
    This app has been working fine for me. I have had no drop outs or crashes. About half the players at my LGS use the app without problem. I used it all through our Journeyman league and now in the Machinations League. You have a one off payment for the faction decks you want. It does have some great features such as creating and saving Army Lists. It also has all the tier list information and all the new content from future books is free once you own a faction deck. If you are concerned about the added costs of buying the decks then stick with the cards. This app is by no means a must have but is another nice tool to have in the armoury.

    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).

  • Needs a few tweaks Aug 11, 2013

    Overall, I like the program. It's much more stable now then it was when I started using it, and I like having the app for stats, list building, and keeping track of damage during battle. I wouldn't mind seeing a few things added though. The ability to factor in tiers (other than just a text entry) would be nice. Also, being able to show when a unit is diminished or dead (it could use a similar hit point system, but for total members of unit) would make late game glances at the app more useful. I could live without the linking system too, it's cool in theory, but not practical in reality.

  • Still awful after all these years May 30, 2016

    By mathieut
    Clunky, unintuitive, slow in spite of being used on a phone several generations newer than what the app was originally designed for. Now with added absence of support for large screens and badly pixelated fonts. The only reason to spend money on this is that PP shut down the free (and great) alternative apps. I'm so glad Privateer Press stuck with the highly competent Tinkerhouse Games for the upcoming version 2 of this disaster.

  • Very happy I have not paid for any decks Mar 13, 2013

    By TimVanBoening
    TREMENDOUSLY slow load time coupled with three initial screens of developers and game logos before you get to the main screen. Once you get there you have options to do things to "enhance" your gameplay. This is an app of uselessness to me. It's pretty pictures and annoying features. None of the features besides the army builder are useful to me. I don't need a damage tracker, I have the cards in front of me. I don't need a timer, I have my phone. I don't need to see my opponent's army on my phone, I can ask to see his/her cards at any time during the game. I loved iBodger and even Forward Kommander online, and still use iBodger when I want to build an actual list due to not wanting to give this app any more money than the Merc deck cost me. Overall, I am a loyal Privateer Press fan and WM/H player (the ONLY game I play), but this app just feels like a plastic spoon with a flamethrower, reading lamp, spare tire, nose hair trimmer, heart rate monitor and lip balm when all you want is a spoon, but since it's the only spoon allowed, you have to use it.

  • A good start... Aug 16, 2012

    By E2lio2tR
    Over all this is a great start. Hopefully you will make the few changes needed to bring this over the top to become a great tool both on and off the table top. However the point of view that was given in the road map of this being a card library more then an army list construction tool is a little aggravating. It was presented as one. A great and functional one was removed to be replaced with this was a tad bit annoying. A few changes that are needed to make this a great system: 1.) make the tier system effect the list creation system. It's a small thing but it has become a big part of the game. 2.) when building a list if you have more then one caster change the FA of a unit to match. If I am playing an unbound game, I'd like to field my full allotment of units with out the app saying it is not valid. 3.)...... Ok let's face it. Make this work like a list construction tool. It's one of the key things it was presented as. A great FREE program was removed to be replaced with this system. It's a start but please make this main function of the app work like it should. Allow us to make a list and have it verify that it is a legal one. Support the theme list function of the game. OR Allow iBodger to be supported again just to makes lists and nothing else. The other functions are great. Easy to control mid game and actually nicer to use then the real cards.

  • Disappointing, especially after so long Aug 6, 2012

    By dbsmash
    I had been waiting for this app with great enthusiasm, but I am sorry to say it fails on many counts. For one, the menu interaction departs from the iOS expectations, instead going for its own look and feel. I think that was a mistake, as uniform menu interaction is one of the hallmarks of a good iOS app (for me anyhow). I was also disappointed to see lack of tablet orientation switching on the iPad version. Things seemed pretty laggy, and in general, I didn't feel like I was using an iPhone app. As for Warmachine specific stuff; the complete lack of tier support is an annoyance, but it is the inability to see which cards I do and do not own that really drives me nuts. I really wanted to play around with list building with the included cards to see what it could do, but just figuring out which cards I can add is an exercise in frustration. All in all, quite a miss by Tinkerhouse and Privateer Press.

  • I'm pretty happy with it Oct 5, 2012

    By Vtrchris
    I really like the app and it's intent. It gives me the decks I want at a reasonable price while representing a fantastic electronic gaming aide. Having the rules reference available makes my play time better. Having said that it's just too slow to take full advantage of, at least on my 3GS. I simply cannot use the damage tracking in a game or give up physical cards yet. List building and validation is crude at best, it's no ibodger for sure. In all I'm happy with the app and the deck purchases. It gets better and better as time goes on. Being able to pour over cards on the go is SO nice. But with the drawbacks I can only give it 3 stars.

  • A very mixed bag Aug 6, 2012

    By Ninja007
    Warroom is ambitious. It adds features no one wanted, seemingly to justify a pre-decided price. At the same time it runs away from features clamoured for and more useful, such as a collection manager. At best it's roughly equal to iBodger, which was free and superior. Privateer co-opted that and made an "official"-looking piece of sluggish bloatware. Visually slick but functionally impractical, a fun toy but not viable during brisk gameplay, and too clunky and slow to supplant iBodger for making armies. The app cannot compete, monopolizing was the only way this could make much profit. Hopefully they learn and make it much faster cheaper and leaner. Hold off for the inevitable fire sale on this app.

  • Was expecting more but alright start Aug 9, 2012

    By Steady player
    I was expecting more functionality off line and army validation and when you run a tier to have the points change automatically but as another reviewer said, we the player can validate just as if you would of you only had the cards. I like being able to see my opponents cards with out asking and it is a lot easier then lugging the cards and every single book around. Again, I would want them to validate my army, especially once I make an unbound army but it is easy to use and make the army you want. Still much room for improvement.

  • Impressively terrible Oct 7, 2015

    By baudot
    Warmachine itself is a great game, but this app is facepalm inducing. The interface is unforgivably bad. Simple things like "where's the button to exit this screen?" have no consistent pattern. Essential menu items (like the ability to log in) are only available at the top level menus, forcing you to back out of what you were doing if the app insists on that. Which it sometimes does, for no apparent reason. The app will sometimes refuse to proceed, until you log in, which makes it unusable if you're in a dead zone. The app becomes unresponsive after swapping to a new army screen for seconds. And that's the regular stuff you get used to. It finds new ways to break periodically atop that. The cards are frequently incorrect, and there’s often a long lag between when new units are added to the game and when they’re added to the app. Reporting errors to the dev team does not result in fixes. Finally, one of the key features has been broken as long as I’ve been using this app: You’re supposed to be able to connect to another player you’re gaming against, and swap lists. I’ve never seen the app even successfully make the connection, let alone swap lists.

  • Not worth the wait, not worth the money, I miss iBodger even more now. Aug 7, 2012

    By Howard Tayler
    The only two things this app have going for it are 1) official status, and 2) it's pretty. It has plenty going against it. The UI is counter-intuitive, slow, and cosmetically confusing. It's cripple-ware: you can't build an army without owning cards for that faction. I had hoped that you could build armies galore, but not see cards to reference unless you purchased them. Nope. Prime and Primal are all you can play without spending money. There's no way to track your collection, let alone track the painted/unpainted state of your models. Face it, folks -- if you paint your armies, you probably spend at least as much time on that activity as you do rolling dice and marking damage. This app gives you no way to determine whether you're building a list out of painted models, or even building a list out of models you own. Privateer Press is a wonderful company to play games from. This app makes them look like rank amateurs. It's very disappointing. I had planned to shell out money for all the faction decks (I own over 500 models across seven factions), but I won't until the app is MUCH better. We waited so long for this sad installment, I'm afraid I don't trust the development team to improve the app anytime soon.

  • Not as good as ibodger Aug 10, 2012

    By johnnyspys
    Sorry...if I shell out $60 bucks (what it costs if you want all the army cards) for an app I expect a ton. This app is buggy, slow, and much more of a pain to create an army. I would buy ibodger over this if Ibodger were still available. I bet this works/looks better on an Ipad but on the phone is is just clunky. I think the app has gotten worse...I don't know how, but on my iphone I can try to select a unit as many 12 or more times and it won't select. This has got to be the worst touch sensitive app I have every used and that includes all the free crap one downloads when they first get a smart phone and then delete within 5 seconds. It took almost 20 minutes to try to get a 50 point army together and I finally gave up and went back to using I bodger. I know feel ripped off!
