My iphone for the crit/fumble ap.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I primarily use a Samsung Galaxy Nexes
Probably upgrading to a Samsung Note (their new phoneblet)

I think maybe focus on android Ice cream sandwich since it is now the Most commonly used OS and All android phones AND tablets are going to run it.

My apps are
Icrit
Ifumble
and Pathfinder Masterwork tools, Pathfinder NPC gallery.

A char gen app would be awesome. Especially if it had a 'Magic Mart' section where you could plug in your gold and it lists what items you could afford.

I've got a Samsung Galaxy 2.

And yes, I use my phone at the gaming table often.

I have an HTC Desire Z phone and an ASUS Eeepad Transformer tablet. I'm much more likely to use the tablet - I already use it for my PDFs, both gaming and non-gaming, and it's much more convenient when travelling to a game or just with time to kill than hauling the books around or the mobile phone; the screen is just too small.

I would like it if you could make the decks you sell expose their intents. That way other app developers can hook right in and launch the appropriate deck (fumble, crit, etc) from their app if there's reason to (say like an initiative tracker that can expose a button to go to the fumble or crit deck)

Note: I'm the developer of Masterwork Tools: Pathfinder Open Reference (Open source, Free, Community Use License), and I would love to expose any tools you sell by making apps I produce launch yours in appropriate circumstances if they are installed.

I have a kindle fire and would love pathfinder related apps for it.

Would love to see more tablet apps. :)

I use an Acer Iconia A500 tablet (currently running Android 4.0 ICS) and a Droid X running Gingerbread (Android 2.3)

I'm planning to upgrade the phone to a Samsung Galaxy S3 later this year.

It's the other way around. First you need to root your device, then you can install a custom ROM that replaces the software that comes with the device. Cyanogen is a very popular ROM with builds for a variety of devices, but many rootable devices have a community of developers who have come up with ROMs for them.

The main advantage I've seen in replacing ROMs is getting rid of the extra software that comes with a device and replacing it with something closer to pure Android. On some devices it's the only way to update to a newer version of the OS. Sometimes you'll find that it's not worth it: I haven't rooted either of the Android phones I've had, but rooting and replacing the software was almost a necessity on my old tablet. YMMV.

ObTopic: I have a Galaxy Nexus and will soon have a very high resolution Android tablet (likely a Transformer Infinity). Later on I might be looking into Windows 8 Pro tablets, if they turn out to have reasonable battery life. (Hero Lab on a tablet, anyone?)

I'll be taking a look at a Microsoft Surface Pro once they get to the stores, and at the Asus Taichi. As I've already got a Transformer Prime I doubt if I'll be sufficiently tempted by the Infinity.

I"m a dirty Windows phone user, but I love my phone. I'll end up buying a Windows Tablet when they come out.

Put me down as one of the three Nokia Symbian users who likes their device, and doesn't plan on switching.


When will these results be published?

Motorola Droid 3 (looking at a Droid 4) and a Nook Color (debating between a Nook Tablet, a more powerful general purpose tablet, or a ASUS Transformer Prime).


Samsung Galaxy S 2


I am really excited by the windows 8 devics on the way. Tablets for ease of use and the new hybrid (taichi/yoga) designs in particular appeal to me.


I use an Android Xoom Tablet & Android Droid 2 phone (rooted) from VZ.

As for the other, all of my game prep is done on an Ubuntu Desktop with multiple desktop screens so that I can quickly flip between virtual books. Sadly, I still have to do all the math and type it up manually.

HTC Thunderbolt for my phone, soon to change to the Galaxy 3. For my tablet I use an Acer Iconia A500.

Given the choice I would rather see apps geared towards tablets rather than phones.

I recently put Cyanogen on 2 old devices, my HTC Droid Eris and Samsung Fascinate. The Eris was a grossly underpowered and slow device and performs much better with Cyanogen. My Fascinate also seems to be performing much better.

As a previous poster noted, Cyanogen does not root your phone; you have to be rooted to install Cyanogen. Essentially, you are usually replacing a bloated OS with a more streamlined one, often improving performance.

I use my iPad and my HTC EVO 4G LTE. I think both platforms should be developed for, as they both seem to have equal footing amongst gamers. At our table, I see 2 iPads, 1 iPhone, and 5 android phones....so fun :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I put down other in my vote. I make heavy use of my BlackBerry Playbook when running games. So, that would be QNX/BBX/BB10 based.

Also around our table, we have iPhone, ipad and android devices used regularly on the player side of the screen.

I use my Asus Transformer TF101 and Motorola Electrify phone for everything.

Asus Transformer TF101, no keyboard, but I'm really thinking about investing in it. To be honest, if I didn't have that tablet, I wouldn't be investing in anything but World of Darkness. All my other stuff is on PDF, and I can't sit down at a computer and read like that.


I use an iPad and a Blackberry Playbook at the moment for tablets, and an Android for a phone.

I don't know that I would really use an app on the tablets, and the pdf readers built in work fine for the books.

My issue is that I wish you guys would offer your .pdf's online for download already optimized for mobile. It can cut the size of the PDF's by two-thirds.

Under Acrobat X Pro, you just go to File -> Save As -> Optimized then choose "Mobile" from the dropdown box at the top. Make sure transparency is not checked in the box to the left, and let it run, everything else can be set to default.

5 minutes later you have an optimized PDF, perfect for tablet viewing.

We can't do this with the protected files we download from the paizo website, but it would be great if we could just download them that way (complete with DRM).

My main device is my iPad 1 (which isn't likely to get upgraded any time soon). I also have an HTC Evo LTE, and could see using certain kinds of apps on that, but it depends on what type of apps you're looking at developing.


I'd use PF apps on my Gateway netbook, my Android smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Fascinate), & my soon to own Android Nexus tablet.

As a developer myself, I think it's a bad strategy to try and tell my potential customer base what hardware they should be using. Even if I'm right, nobody likes to be told they chose poorly.

Very untrue. ~80% of all active android handsets use 2.2 and 2.3. Only ~11% use ICS.

I know at least one members of my gaming group would be very sad if the older android versions were not supported.

Android version statistics, as of July 2nd

I have an old Hero I use as an mp3 player and misc. pdf viewer, currently use a Moto Photon (or MoPho), and am looking pretty hard at the Nexus 7 in lieu of an Amazon Kindle Fire.

I use the Galaxy Nexus and the Toshiba Thrive but I have a Nexus 7 on pre order
