Ignoreo other reviews
I don’t know if the other reviewers were using a different version of the app or they just didn’t use the app right. There are 2 different modes, and obviously the other reviewers were using the PDF mode. The “guide” mode is perfect and is as it should be; exactly like the in-game instructions in LEGO Dimensions. The app is a perfect build companion for the LEGO kits. I probably won’t even use the hardcopy version. After all, with the app, there’s no problem with the pages being flat :).
The purpose of the app is to provide a digital alternative to the instruction book... All it does is display a PDF of those instructions and the viewer that display the PDF is truly poor. It has a big button on it that returns you to the start of the instructions. To get to the next page of the instructions you have to drag your finger, instead of a simple tap or something to advance to the next screen. Lego, please put some effort into this app. It should be as simple to use as the printed instructions and easily move from page to page and resume where you left off.
It is a good app but one time I was looking for a lego set and I typed in the name but it wouldn’t pop up. I was upset because I was exited about this app and I couldn’t use it. Now it kicks me out of the app while I’m building I can get back in and resume but it kicks me out again.
Good, but missing several
There are several sets not included in the database. Some are small sets sold exclusively at one store, but I have several that were boxed sets. I cannot find contact information to submit these for inclusion.
Lego’s sets are really amazing and of high quality. But I can’t believe the app is barely useable and looks like some student’s course project work. For a 400 page pdf, you will need to scroll down page by page. No navigation button. Seriously put some time to improve the app!
iPhone is too small
Really this should be an appletv app! And really, it needs simple next-step, previous-step controls.
Finite number of sets
I have more than 400 sets in LEGO Life App and when I logged my account in this App I can’t see all my sets. In Life App the scrolling down is infinite
To help those looking for the 3D instructions
One of the things that drew me to the app was the possibility of the 3D instructions. I’m sure that I’m not the only one that finds it difficult at times with the photo one where exactly to place some bricks and I figured this would help. I was disappointed to find out it was only available on a very few sets (very few). You would think they have been using the same cad design software for years so they could have transferred more but that is a side note. I was further perplexed when for the life of me I could not find a set that did have the 3D instructions. Then finally I found one. If the set you have in the front page shows a “get started” button below the general description then that is a 3D instruction. Push the button and it will take you there. Here is my suggestion for Lego. First define which sets have 3D instructions. My suggestion would be place a ribbon on the corner of the model pics that have 3D on it. This way it’s easy to see which ones are 3D and which ones are not. Second would be to place a button labeled 3D next to pdf. If the set has 3D instructions it’s able to be pushed if not then it’s grayed out and can’t be pushed. If you can push it have a banner come up that says 3D instructions not available. Lastly use a different pdf reader than this one. The one you use in Lego life works better than this one. A few buttons on it would be nice. Back,forward, go to [page] would be nice. P.S. if you found these tips useful just imagine the help I could be if you employed me. Reply with a contact at anytime.
You can’t rotate the app by turn the device. On the iPad or I iPhone.
Mostly PDFs, PDF reader stinks
Most sets only have PDF instructions, with a rather slow and buggy PDF reader. This app would be much more useful if more sets supported instructions+. It would also be great if we could easily add sets we already have either by looking at our past LEGO.com purchases, or by taking a photo of the model assembled so I can keep a digital record of my instructions books.
We got to the main part of set 41374 and the app crashed several times. Good thing the sets still include the instruction booklets.
