War Room review

War Room has just been released on the App Store and Google Play. War Room is an app dedicated to Privateer Press games, Warmachine and Hordes. The app main purpose is to be a card library, an in such a way, an army list manager. Of course, Warmachine and Hordes players could already use their mobile devices for their favorite games. IBodger was available on the App Store for a long time and was ported on the Android Market pretty fast. Its main purpose was to be an army lists manager. Of course, as an non-official work, there where limits. First, the visual design was pretty poor. Second, players didn’t have access to profiles details, I suppose for a question of License agreement. Although, the app did what it was designed for and did it right.
