Hello everyone,
I spent some time writing an android app to track campaign progress. App is totally free to use, without advertisements.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gau.ia.cam...

Please leave me feedback and feature requests. Thanks for checking my post.

Added support for Twin Shadows....... Trying to localize this app. Please email me if you can help me localize this app to Spanish, German and Italian.

I like that it automatically calculates XP, credit and reward cards. I also like that it knows whether the next mission is story or side.

Why isn't there error-checking during the campaign setup? I was able to start with one card in my agenda and side mission decks - it should be trivial to require me to have the correct number.

hey thanks!!

Having just started a campaign, I'll check it out and give you some feedback, but the one above seems a good one - should be easy to check you have the correct number of cards before the campaign starts

Wow thats pretty great, thanks a ton for this! Really makes the whole record keeping that much easier.

Suggestions for more features: Letting us assign reward cards to a hero. Like adrenal implants, etc.

Letting us assign equipment to a hero.

That's fine as an optional feature, but items and rewards are, strictly speaking, owned by the group and can be handed around or reconfigured each mission. The trick for doing it in an app would be to allow someone the option without cluttering up the interface for the other users.

Items are shared, rewards are not, IIRC. That said, most groups probably don't rearrange items all that often, so it would still be nice to have assignments for those too (which can be changed) just to make setup a bit faster.

That's correct, rewards are assigned to a hero upon receipt. My bad.

Great job, and thanks for that, GG tip given. Any chance of an iOS version?
Not that I'm expecting anything mind you, but it would be great for my group.

Well done! I downloaded it last night and put in an ongoing campaign and started another with some of my friends. I am very pleased.

Maybe you can add Legendary and Heroic for two and three rebels?

Thanks for the feedback. Rewards are assigned automatically to Heroes after wining the appropriate side mission. I will try to add an interface to assign equipments to heroes.

The hero-specific missions grant rewards to that particular hero, but there are other side missions that end with "Choose a hero to receive..." such as the Adrenal Stim, I believe. For those missions I believe the Rebels have to assign it upon receipt, and then it's stuck with that hero for the rest of the campaign (unlike equipment, which as noted can be traded at will between missions -- except for 0xp starting equipment, of course).

Hi,

I'm interested in implementing an iOS version of the app!

Nice app, thank you for sharing it!

I would like to request the ability to share the save files. Sometimes we play at my house, other times we play at my friends. If we could share the save file, he wouldn't have to bring his tablet when we play at my house.

Thanks!

It would be handy for the app to support this natively, but in the mean time there are plenty of free file browsers for Android - I'm sure you could just e-mail him the file and he can copy it over to his folder.

That would work but sadly I don't know my way around Android's file system. Any idea where the data file is stored?

I actually couldn't find a folder for it in the standard Android data directory, so you might need the author to make you an export option after all.

Great app!!
It is very handy and useful. It's the perfect companion for the 'Mobile' game owner

I found an issue with the Agenda Mission though.

They give the reward to the Empire (usually an ally) also if the rebels decide not to play it when they need to choose the next side mission. Your app does not contemplate this option and grants the reward only if the mission is played and the Empire wins.

Do you think you can fix this?

When you're in the campaign screen, click the three dots on the upper right for the menu. There is an option there to Add Earned Reward.

Oh... I did not know that!!!! That is excellent! Thanks a lot!

PS: In case others don't have the 3 dots on the upper right cornet (I don't) you get the Add Earned Rewards menu by clicking the left (options) button

Ah, the lovely variety in Android...yes, any phone made within the last X years doesn't have an options button, Google has standardized any submitted apps to having the on-screen three dots icon. If your phone is older than that, hit the option button like in any other app.

App updated to assign rewards/Equipments to Players and added check for number of agenda sets selected during campaign setup.
