Just wondering if anyone has used or tried this app from the Apple app store?  I can't download it till I clear some space from the ipad memory.  Is it worth the time downloading it? Is this more for newbies?

1.61 GB!
WOW!
I am an Android guy so I can't check it out.
I would like to hear from people here if they do try it. Smile

I started an online endeavor similar to this but web browser based, not tied to a phone (and no spinning 360 degree figures of course) but when I realized how much work and time it would take plus input, images and help from a ton of people, I scraped it. Way too much for a fun, free project for me unfortunately. I do plan on resurrecting part of it to be able to track a personal collection. I need to be able to track my stuff now that I have stuff worth tracking. tongue

back on topic.......
again........ It looks neat and I would like to hear from the iPad/Phone users here if they do try it.

cheers!
Very Happy

I'm wondering if this sort of app could be applied to say, a "Lili Ledy" guide?  It would definitely be a huge undertaking to put something like this together.  But if there is already a pre-built template out there like this.  Then it would be just a matter of putting in new pictures and info.  Just a thought!

Yes the 1.61 GB is a bit of an eye opener.  I think this is just the basic app.  The full app might even be more.  Something like this might be more suited for SD card that you could put into a phone or ipad when you need it.  I can't imagine what size a guide with all the figures might be? It would be huge.Shocked 

I also remember a discussion a while back about viewing the figures with a 360 deg viewer as well.

Hopefully someone out there has tried it out.

I am also an Android guy, so I can't tell either.

I remember Robert (Neonboy) was working on a Ipad Guide a while ago. This one looks different though.

What did you think of the app?

I downloaded it last night. It was a neat little app, but it was a little slow and clunky. Our ipad is already about 2 years old, so maybe it would run better on a newer ipad?
I could only access the Luke farm boy figure with the spin 360 deg function and a bit of info on the figure in the demo mode. It has potential, but I don't think I'm quite ready to shell out the money for the full app.Very Happy

A small tip if you don't already know this.

1-Locate the .ipa file for the app in the "Libraries\Music" folder (if I remember correctly :scratch: )
2-rename to zip
3-unzip the file
4-browse for any goodies (images etc)

Have fun!
