Hero Lab Online play experience on iPad?


Licensed Products General Discussion


I'm interested in opinions on using HLO on iPad for P2E. Is it as easy to use as the Hero Lab Classic app on the iPad? Is the play tab laid out as conveniently or is there a lot of scrolling around finding things? Does anyone know where I can see some screen shots, especially of the play tab's layout?

I know I could get the HLO demo but I did that first on my desktop and now I can't get a second download on my iPad without making a second HL login, which I don't want to mess with if I don't have to.

I have classic and HLO both. I have the playtest currently but was told I will be upgraded to 2ed when it goes live. The HLO version is different, and has a learning curve for sure. I find that because of screen size there is more scrolling, but once you get use to the layout it is easy to navigate, at least for me.
I'm hoping that 2ed will build and refine on the playtest version. I'm also hoping that they do have the printable character sheets redone and ready before GENCON, because it works great when you have reliable internet, otherwise..... ALWAYS print a hard copy before you get to the table unless you KNOW there is good internet service!

I would do the free demo, so you could see the layout and play with it bit before you take the $35 jump. But that's just me. YMMV

You dont need a new login for your iPad. You just need to give a new device nickname. You will only ever have one login for HLO and you can log into as many devices as you want just not at the same time. That is what the Device Nickname is doing helping to remind you which device your logged into last...
