Only complaint is that I had the full library of dragon magazines downloaded (prior to their update a few weeks ago) and read them frequently. The update wiped out my library and they have been slow to release the back issues since the update.
Best way to know what’s going on in d&d!
I love this app! Now I know when new stuff is coming out, and I get an inside look at what’s going on. I would most certainly recommend this to any Dungeons and Dragons player!
Super interesting articles and looks even better since the update
Horrible App Update
The new update is horrible. The UI is confusing and difficult to navigate, the menu options rarely show up with multiple taps or scrolling trying to get them to appear, there’s no more home feed of all the D&D social media posts, and they got rid of all the old issues! The content in the magazines is a good, the horrible new app ruins the experience.
Heat way to stay up to date with D&D
This provides great articles and insight our great hobby! Excellent content provided in a concise way.
This is a great place to catch up on new and exciting things happening at Wizards. Easy to nav and a fun read
This app is a must for and 5e player or DM
Just is the time
I love the articles but I wish they had some one paged adventures like some of the old dnd magazines used to have.
The latest update is nice. It now remembers where you were in an issue.
A successful step into future of publishing... almost
What is great? Art and design are consistent and modern. Navigation is easy and comparable to other digital magazines (e.g. Wired). Content is varied, supporting all forms of the D&D brand and focused on the current campaign. The most recent issue is supposed to even feature a download of an Adventure League adventure. What needs more attention? It currently crashes a lot on my gen. 3 iPad (30-pin connector + retina display) and navigation freezes (where other digital magazines with similar or greater content do not). Integrated links to other media are not always coordinated, e.g. the link in issue #3 to the adventure does not work--only pulling up a single page of related backgrounds to the adventure. The future on iOS has been clouded by Apple's move away from Newsstand, and thus future access to archive issues is in doubt.
App wont launch
As of the latest update the app no longer launches on my ipad. Stays on the splash screen and spins until it gets on error and closes.
New version is better, now please export to PDF and/or print options!
A Disappointing Continuation of a Beloved Magazine
As a long time fan of Dragon magazine (both in digital and print) I was excited to see what Wotc was doing to continue the heritage of this publication now with 5th edition well under way. I should note that I absolutely adore the rule set for 5th edition, the simplicity of the basics has been absolutely amazing for introducing many of my friends to the hobby, and has opened up plenty of room for homebrew at the table. All the more reason that I found Dragon+ to be such a great disappointment. I understand that there are limitations with a free magazine, but issues seem to be over half advertisements, the only usable content tends to be unearthed arcana which was printed elsewhere, and even that has slowed to a crawl in its release. Clearly their initial statement that they desired to continue providing “lore and gameplay materials” in much the same way as dragon magazine provided was not what I had assumed they meant. If you don’t like the wizards of the coast website, this app is an okay (if often buggy) way to get news, if you can use their website, this app is a waste of space on your phone. I’d much rather pay a subscription for better content, like back in the old days of Dragon. No offense is meant to any individuals who enjoy this magazine, everyone has different tastes, and I suppose I just miss what Dragon used to be. Consider this just a warning to other old grognards, I’d pass on this app for now.
Great Content, App Needs Work
First off, the actual magazine is very good. Fun interviews. Nice articles and stories. Access to some D&D adventure modules and related content. Special offers. One-stop access to the latest on the various Wizards D&D social feeds. All great. It's the app itself that needs work. Most of the issues stem from the fact the app appears to be built on a cross-platform framework. It doesn't look or feel like an iOS native app. Scrolling can be less than smooth, albeit it has improved considerably since the 1.0. It also doesn't take advantage of a number of the latest iOS APIs and features like the latest Safari webviews. Swipe gestures also don't always work consistently, like swiping right to open the main side menu. That gesture works to navigate in some places, but definitely not the home menu screen. I'm also not a huge fan of the navigation overlay within the magazine issues. These are just some of the issues. Overall, I'd recommend Wizards and the developers invest in making Dragon+ a more native iOS experience. I just hope it's in the (Tarroka) cards; my issues apply to most commercial magazine apps that use a cross-platform framework approach.
A really bad app I'm afraid
It's basically just a container that grabs content (issues of the magazine, social media posts, Tumblr articles, etc.) from the web. the most frustrating thing is that as I'm in the app trying to read said content, the app is telling me that there's a better way to read the content which is to download the Dragon+ app. This doesn't just happen once. It happens pretty much with everything you try to read. I finally got into an article posted on Tumblr that had some maps to download. I clicked on a map and was brought to a large iPad screen sized image. I wanted to go back to the original page and so I clicked on a back arrow that I assumed would bring back to the page but instead brought me to an entirely different page (the first screen/page when you launch the app) where Issue 1 started to download. I could tell that because of the obnoxious "Downloading" animation that took over and rendered the app unusable. My internet speed isn't that great (up to 5mbps)and the download took about about 10 minutes. It's just a mess. The content is good but the app is not.
