That looks pretty awesome, of course its going to be available in March, which probably will mean June. :) Still, very cool concept to have everything right there, updated directly from PP. A WM/H specific turn clock for tourneys will be nice too.

I like the idea a lot, however thinking about it I'm not sure how it will be when people start bringing their phones to the game to show you thier cards. If everyone had a smart phone, I understand some people don't for different reasons, it would be awesome. Yet, I don't want it to turn into to play this game you should have a starterbox, tape measure, dice and smartphone...

But great Idea in general I will for sure get it an prob everydeck over time. just to study other factions when I have nothing better todo.. hehe.

Yeah, I think having your real card available for games would still be a requirement. I view cards on the phone as a neat reference between games or just looking around at home.

It's handy in several ways.

Off the top of my head:
Reference rules while out and about. I don't know how often I'm driving somewhere or sitting around at a friends and a rules question pops into my head, by the time I'm back around my books I usually forget whatever it was I wanted to look up.

Tracking my opponents damage. I'll still use actual cards, but tracking the other guys damage as well as my own would allow me to pay closer attention to whats busted up, near death etc. That might make for more efficient use of my own stuff.

The timer I could take or leave. It's always handy, but I already have a kitchen timer.

Hopefully they'll also allow for a no quarter subscirption through the app. It'd be nice to have those available as well

Wow, NQ subscriptions through the app would be brilliant. I hope they do that as well.

I really dislike this product for tournament use.

It's cool as a list builder and for fun games but in a tournament setting I really dislike it's use. It is going to cause problems.
I'm a confessed cynic so figure that into account when reading my posts.

How so??? Not saying you're wrong, just asking for your reasoning.
