Even for the most casual of fans, (whether of the T.V. Show, OR the books) this app is like a digital archive of George R.R. Martins’ actual mind itself! The map brings the entire “World of Ice & Fire” to life, & makes it feel more like an actual historical event, rather than just simply the imagination of a great author. It draws you into the world that he’s created almost as realistically as opening the front door of your Home brings you into the real world. Then there’s the biographies & summation that provide SO MUCH context, as well as left out material from the show, that it truly does help you to better understand, relate, & enjoy the characters (known & unknown alike) Bottom line, of you like Game of Thrones I was OR the books... PURCHASE THIS APP!!! P.S. To the creators of this app... PLEASE UPDATE!!! Add more locations, myths, & histories. I would buy even the smallest of in-app purchases that you release, so PLZ DO SO
I’m still not sure if paying for the app was worth it. It’s very neat that you can follow characters through their quests in the book but many times when I don’t know who a character is and I look them up they’re not even listed. It’s annoying. It’s not even people that are mentioned once and never again. I’m currently reading book two and Arya is reciting her names and I didn’t remember some of the people she mentioned so I looked them up but they’re not listed. And it’s not just one it’s several that aren’t listed. Ser Amory, Dunsen, when I was in book 1 there was another character I didn’t recognize and he too was not listed, I don’t remember his name now but it was knight. It’s also pretty buggy, sometimes after finding a name after clicking on it the app will just bug out and freeze as it’s loading the information. When this happens a reset won’t even fix the issue it’s hard to tell when the app will decide to work and when it won’t. When it does work or when the information IS listed it’s great though. Detailed and concise. However there’s blue links on sheets sometimes that work as links to other pages and they don’t always work. It needs work
EDIT: They fixed everything mentioned below! The developers really read and take into consideration these reviews. Thus, it now goes from a 4 to a 5 star app for me! ________ This is an amazing app!!! The only reason it doesn’t get a 5 star for me is the problem of zooming in and selecting of a specific town or geographical body. Once you select a town/geographical body for more information- you cannot simply back up to where you at on the map before selecting said item. You must find the entire region (Westeros, Essos, etc.) again and zoom back in (which takes some time because it is a very excellent, extensive, and large map). However, that is only one small correction. If you are a ASOIAF or Game of Thrones fan- this is “must have” and very helpful! Thank you for making this wonderful app!!!
Have tried to send email after hitting the help icon but I am not sure if it’s the right email address. First off let me say I really love this application. There can be a lot of confusion due to the complex story lines and so many characters and locations. This application is so helpful in keeping everything and everybody straight in your head. I appreciate the brief but informative backstories of the characters and locations as well. The maps are so very thorough and so easy to navigate as well. It’s worth every penny. Now to my issue DEVELOPERS- I have purchased everything and have the slider all the way over to the 5th book but in spite of that some of the characters journey’s are locked. For example I chose Brienne of Tarth and it informed me the book she first appears in is not unlocked and sends me to the slider screen to unlock it. The slider is already set to unlock all 5 books(all the way over to ‘the right side over ‘A Dance With Dragons’) Could you give advice here and or send me the correct email to direct my question? This is a really awesome application and I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you!!!!
With the massive storyline that George R. R. Martin has woven, it's not utterly surprising that an app has been created to assist fans to reference source material that may have been forgotten over the course of the years. It's a brilliant app; to avoid spoilers, it has a slide-bar that lets you decide what material is shown, based on what books you have finished reading. Text is clean and updated based on new publicized works. Maps are included, but material and maps must be bought. Honestly at the low price, it is totally worth the investment. It's also nice for those who watch the television show, as it enables you to see the true happenings and also gives you the maps to refer to while watching the show. Five stars.
