I did a short blog post about the release of War Room by Privateer Press and why I think it's the gentle digital future of tabletop wargaming.

FYI, it was circulating in beta but it's officially released as a fully (ish) developed app. I sincerely do think that the combination of helpful functionality and function over form (unlike GW's digital offerings) will make War Room the go to standard for this sort of thing.

I have no problems with the GW digital codexes; the hyperlinked rules are great

I do think that eBooks and more functional apps are the future.

Whats wrong with me? I can't see were it tells me what it is or what it does.

Here is a link to Privateer Press for War Room.

I looked at the Android app. Looks to have a few bugs in it. Hopefully they can iron them out soon.

this is the type of program I'd like for games like Dark Age or Rezolution

Mmm, just had a look for it on Google Play: a very poor rating of 1.5 out of 5 with 1000 reviews. Good concept though and given time they could still turn this around.

@GunRunner probably because each faction is £5.00 GBP to unlock the cards – and you can't make a list without them. Which is less functionality than iBodger had, and that was free.

This program is incredibly poorly polished for how long its been in development.

I agree, it lacks a tonne of polish that it should have. I am pretty surprised how bad it was.
