So will the app allow someone to play who is not physically in the room as the game?

Like, one person has the game and app, and then a friend located some place else also has the app.

Can they play the game together via the app?

There isn't any information available about the SWIA app other than it's being worked on. Rumors are even calling that into question (EA licensing crap). Knowing how the Descent and Mansions of Madness apps work, I'd have to say "no". App data is not shared between devices and doesn't run on the network during operation. This means any random events or randomized enemy combat effects would be different for different people running the app.

The app also doesn't feature all the game data, only items you can interact with and the layout of the board. The person not with the game board would have no idea where figures are on the board.

Well in that case, I hope they read this post and try to make the app share data so others can play who arent in the room

Honest question: why would they? This is still supposed to be a board game.

Also, there are five or six topics about the app already. Did we really need another one...?

None of the FFG apps handle board position (other than where things start); that's what the boardgame part is for.

Even if the app shared data, it is not much use if you can't see the board.

I believe what you are looking for is Vassal/Tabletop Simulator/Tabletopia or the Play by Forum.
