It is in the plans but testing local storage is a lot of work  ;) I also need to get an Android tablet to test on before I do that

Minor quibble. You can take it or leave it, really. However, I think the Search by Type field should be a drop down list instead of a text box. That would be my first choice. My second choice would be to have the full wording of the Type for each spell. I don't really like the abbreviations. But that's just my opinion and doesn't really affect the functionality too much.

I totally agree with this.

Add "+" button next to the "-" in our spellbook so we do not have to search in the big list just to add another copy of a card already in the spellbook.

Not sure if its a feature request, existing feature, known issue or bug, but the card images come up over the page dialogue.  They also persist if another card is selected and need to be actively deselected to be closed. 

As they don't seem movable, having persisting images seems redundant.  It would seem cool if they could be moved to the side so I could have a few cards open to compare effect etc.  In which case, as I'd probably have scrolled from the card title, being able to close the image by clicking on it somewhere would be nice. 

Also wondered if the default card sets included should flag off the mage selected (i.e. if I select Warlord, then FM vs W seems a useful default spell set to include).

On this same note, maybe an 'X' in the corner of the card when it pops up so that it can be easily closed without having to click on the card link again would be nice

It would also be kind of nice to be able to have some kind of flag that indicates if a card is already in the spellbook in the bottom pane.

Currently you can enter 'War Earth' in the field and find any cards that are Earth and/or Dark schools. You wouldn't be able to do that if it was a drop down. It doesn't effect a lot of spells currently

As you mentioned, those are Schools. I was talking about spell Type. Meaning Attack, Conjuration, Creature, Enchantment, Equipment, or Incantation. I am pretty confident in saying no spell has more than one Type.

Whoops  ;D

I'll add it later today and it will be in the next release.

It would be nice to have all of the basic spellbooks "pre-built" to save the time of entering them manually.  They could be included as a free download, or better yet integrated into the app.

When saving a spellbook that was loaded from disk, subsequent saves are text only (.txt extension).

1. OS:  Mac OS X 10.8.5
2. Browser:  Chrome Version 31.0.1650.57

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Create a Spellbook.
2.  Save the spellbook to disk with ".sbb" extension
3.  Load the spellbook from disk.
4.  Click "save."  The spellbook only saves in .txt format.  ("sbb.txt")
