It's more an timer app then an app that runs the game for you.

A timer is required to play London Dread. You can use a phone
or watch, though we strongly recommend you download the free
London Dread app (available for Android or iOS) or get the free
audio files available at Greyfoxgames.com. The soundscapes and
voiceovers greatly add to the immersion and feel of the game.

Ah, OK, timer is fine! Thanks so much for clarifying!

Now back to wondering when I can get the game.

One of the reasons I didn't pick this up at Gen Con was because I figured they were targeting the game's actual release date for the app release date.

I thought the app had the story/narration and ambient sounds in it. Is it really just a timer?

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks.

The app does have narration and ambient sounds for background while you're playing, but the entire script of the narration is included in the story guide with the game so the app can be replaced with a timer and someone reading from the book. The narration in the app is really well done though, so I'd much rather use the app.

I can confirm.
The App is optional. Everything it does can be done yourself - all story narration is provided in the story guide and ll you need is a 12 minute timer.

That said, it does provide the following:
Story/Chapter/Endgame Introduction
Ambient sounds during planning phase (including 2 minute warning)
And Endgame Specific Music for each endgame.

Again, all optional (but we think it's cool!). cool

Available on Android presently (google play store) and on iOs pending approval for the Apple Store.

Any idea when this will be on the iOS App Store? Waiting to play until I get the app. I know it's not needed but I want the richest experience right out of the box.

Definitely one of the reasons I didn't pick it up at Gen Con. But, if you have the sound files and are eager to play, why don't you just put them on your IOS device? That'd surely get the game to the table faster than waiting for the app?

I will do that as a backup but it would be nice to know why the google store was all done at time of gencon and IOS users are still searching for London Dread everyday and come back from that search disappointed. cry

The apple store application was held up as we were waiting on the receipt of a Dunn & Bradstreet number. We have had that assigned and the app has been submitted to apple. We hope to see it approved within the next week.

Great news, thanks for the info! Will keep an eye out. It'll be a great day when the London Dread app pops up instead of the 50,000 different London-themed doll dress up games, haha.

Full disclosure. We do not (yet) have any affiliation with a London-themes doll dress up game. whistle
