I just pick up mansion of madness second edition about a week ago, and during my first game it dawned on me how much an app like the one used for MM would improve SoB. It would eliminate almost all of the decks necessary for playing the game. I hope for the next KS they add an app as a SG.

Developing an app with the polish of the MoM app costs a lot of money. FFG can afford this, but it's probably beyond the budget of FFP.

I'm fully agree. There is now lot of materials and rules to manage and an app will greatly simplify the manipulation and decrease preparation time.
Some materials will become obsolet (exploration token and deck from normal and other world, growing dread, monster sheet, threats deck etc) and maybe the app cost could be absorbed by a less manufacturing cost ?

In all case I have in mind to digitalize the maximum parts of this fabulous game ... A day

Even if they made an app for all the different decks, it would greatly reduce setup and clutter on the table. I dont think it would take a terrible amount of work and would gladly pay a couple of bucks for it. I dont think they need to go all out and do a Mansions of Madness style app that breaks down what map tiles go where, but just have all the decks to select from, you touch it and it randomly deals out a card from that deck.

I know card warden is out there and I have tried it, but its not quite what I was hoping for in terms of digitizing the cards.

I'm working on a SoB companion app at the moment. Initially, I'm just going to focus on HexCrawl (an amazing SoB variant) plus Frontier Town. The app won't drive the story like MoM2, but instead help track all the things are reduce the number of charts and rolls that have to hit the table.

Hopefully, it will gain some traction and take on a life of its own and more features will be added.

I'm working on a simple deck manager at the moment, that will basically do all the shuffling and card draws (including holding up Growing Dread cards until the end) to save having a whole extra (side) table covered in card decks.

I have the same thing in mind.

To avoid everybody developping his proper app : dear FFP could you make this app for us ? In case of a soon KS it will be fine to see it as a stretch goal whistle

An app could be a really good way of implementing a campaign without producing tons of physical bits and pieces.

Could HexCrawl be made entirely as an app to eliminate the need for any actual printing and crafting?

The other thing I wouldn't mind is a soundtrack app to let you play specific tracks as the game progresses.
