Hey all,

I've made a new Spell Database application for 2nd Edition Pathfinder. Just a little app to search spells & also has a few quick reference sheets for conditions, traits, monster abilities & other things you need at hand GM'ing. Also has a bookmarking feature so you can manage multiple bookmarked spell lists - good for tracking your spells available on different characters or just flagging a spell you're interested in returning to as you're browsing.

The app is available on the Google Play Store for Android. 100% free, no ads, just spells! Made it for my own use, figured I should share.

Big thanks to Archives of Nethys who did most the hard work digitizing all this data. I did some of my own data entry & cleanup, but there's no way I'd have made this app without being able to piggy-back their hard work by pulling some of the spell data from their site!

And also an obvious thanks to Paizo who actually owns all the data & their use of the OGL that lets community content like this exist! I hope this is both in the letter and spirit of your OGL :D

PS: App is open source, so if anyone's curious you can hit it up at the GitHub Repo.
PPS: Working on an offline usable browser version currently to handle iPhones & desktop use. Have shared it with my local group, one issue left to clean up so this shouldn't be too far behind.

Can confirm, it is useful to be able to pull up those quick references and spells easily.

Just downloaded it. It's really fast and snappy. The bookmark lists are an easy way to setup indivual spellbooks. Good sorting options.

Overall I think this is pretty close to ideal.

Oh, WOW.

This app is amazing. It's a spell reference and an entire GM screen all in one place. Thank you so much! This is going to make running 2e so much easier!

Looks good. I'll be giving it a try with a Demon's spells all in one bookmark later.

I couldn't find it by searching in the the store, I had to follow your link.

For those of us not browsing the forums on their phones, what is the exact name of the app?

And thanks, great work.

Exact name of app is "Pathfinder 2E Spell DB".

It's starting to show up on searches now. Couldn't find it myself in the store even searching by it's name when I first announced it. I think that's cause I announced it quite quickly after Google approved it to go live & their store takes a while to catch up.

Is there any chance of a dark mode?

I love the app very much. Not to be unappreciative but are you going to keep adding to it or fleshing it out more? Especially the quick reference section

Dude great job!

Yeah, I'm going to keep maintaining it going forward & fleshing it out. Currently have a few things on my list based on some reddit feedback (Mostly around a few minor issues & some formatting and search features).

Dark mode is a possibility - mostly just a UX thing of fitting in a toggle in for it... possibly in an options screen somewhere.

The next big thing I'm considering trying to find a nice way to track is Vancian casting prep. Main thing stopping me there is I don't want to clutter the UI for spell browsing. Thinking of having it only when viewing a bookmark list flagged for Vancian casting or something.

Quick reference wise I'll likely expand a few PFS lists from the new guides (Like the start of scenario school item availability). Don't want to over-fill it to the point it's not a quick reference so much as a rules catalog, so I'm trying to make sure it's something people actually need to quickly reference in game before I put it in :)

New version has just gone out fixing up some of the feedback I've gotten so far:
- Fixed a bug where Basic saving throws weren't showing
- Fixed an issue where cantrips are getting mixed in with level 1 spells when sorted by level.
- Added Earn Income quick reference - seems like it'll come up at the end of every PFS game.
- Allowed searching by duration of spell
- Allowed sorting by number of actions
- Improved the formatting of polymorph and morph spells to more closely reflect the formatting in the rulebook.

Also I've published on a website URL which supports offline mode to allow iPhone/iPad & desktop users to use the app too: https://fyjham-ts.github.io/Pathfinder-2E-Spell-DB/

Thanks all for the very positive & useful feedback that helped me find the above issues to fix :D

Known data issue to fix next release: Spells with afflictions haven't got full detail recorded- Abyssal Plague, Goblin Pox, Purple Worm Sting & Ghoulish Cravings. Will be fixing those next update.
