It has been a while since somebody asked again for a mobile version for the companion app. I fully respect routes needed to make it work propperly.

BUT I don't get it what's the big deal with freeing the app for mobile devices. I bet my smartphone has double of all technical features than my tablet. More pixels, more processor, more all. And I really use it all the time while the tablet is at home. I bite my ass for knowing the would work fine for sure and it just lacks a permission. With root and faking around I could make it work, but that would brake down other apps.

What is the point? I guess the app would be used much more and intense when available for mobile devices. Even with minor bugs like scrolling at unhappy places. More users = more talk about mage wars = more interested new players = more new players learning cards and thinking of spellbooks on the road = more creative strategies and so on...

Can someone please release the app for mobile in the way it is? It can not be that hard and or disgusting in it's optic

I have it on my phone already. No problem.
Just extract the apk with a simple app like app saver, put it your drive, and then install it at your phone.

Thanks a lot fas723! That worked easy and the app is running smooth as I guessed.
Even more I wonder why they don't open it up at google play. I think more people would use it that way.

Now I start waiting for updates like import/export of spellboooks :D

Is this thread being read by anybody in charge of changes on the app ? Some remarks / request seem to pop up over and over again, but nothing happens...

my main request is still the reference / ability card of the mages which is not available...quite basic and necessary i would say !!!

Thanks in advance to implement this as soon as possible !!!

Yes, someone does read this. We've been working with our developer to get various updates done. Things have been taking longer than we were like, and we're trying to improve that entire system. We have not forgotten the requests of our players and are trying to work through those and other concerns. Thank you for your time.

Months pass by. Is the app still under development?

At least a way to import/export spellbooks should be provided. I have my books in octgn and get ideas and thoughts on the road. Those would land in the app, but because i don't want to start from scratch and i also don't want to do the spellbook twice i don't use the app.

I feel like that is a shame and a punch in the face for whoever developed this. So much work unused because of a missing detail...

Serious: is this app still unser development?

A Import/Export is important.
What about Domination? It is out and in play for a while and the cards are not listet in the App.
What about Academy? Same question.
What about Mage Stat Cards?

I paid for this and now can't get rid of the feeling, that after enough times sold the companion got dumped. That is sad!

Yes, it's still being worked on. I understand the frustration, and we've been trying to work with our developer. I'm sorry I don't have more news, but we keep trying to push forward on it.

Thanks for your Feedback! It was just strange to hear nothing at all about it.
It is a very nice App and I am looking forward to actually using it. Take your time.

Do you have a timetable for us Laddinfance?
I would say updating all now existing cards is the most important for all users.

My top desired features:

- Review the Mage card of the selected mage.
- Ability to copy a spell book.
- Search for any text on the card ("teleport" or "vampiric" or "fire +" or "equipment" etc).
- Cards in other languages (German).
- Add Arena + Battlegrounds cards.
- Search only for certain spell types ("Equipment" or "Creature" or "Incantation" etc.)
- Option to generate the default deck for each mage as suggested by the documentation.
- Ability to review the entire codex for all products including search feature.
- Guided attack - Q&A guiding a player through an attack: "Does the attacked object have the flying trait? (y/n)" / "Do you have Line of Sight to the target? (y/n)" / "Does the attacked object have a defence? (y/n)" etc.
- Swipe left right to move between magnified cards.
- Ability to send spell books to other users via mail, messages etc.
- Hyperlink keywords on cards to integrated codex.
- Roll dice.
- A 4x4 field matrix (or larger) where column search terms are AND-ed and row search terms are OR-ed. All search terms searching all relevant text on the card. That way you could search for cards that are either incantations or enchantments from the nature school that modify melee or ranged attacks:

"incantation" AND "nature" AND "melee +"
OR
"enchantment" AND "nature" AND "melee +"
OR
"incantation" AND "nature" AND "ranged +"
OR
"enchantment" AND "nature" AND "ranged +"
