Yep, I think it will definitely be handy.

I'm curious to hear reports from iPad owners.

Hey, if Survivors can play "pass the chainsaw", you guys can play "pass the iPad".

So you can have multiple survivors being tracked at once with the app, and just switch between them? Can't wait for android version. As others have said, sounds like it will be particularly handy for solo.

Copied from my post on the KS update...

Pretty good app - the UI is a little bit clunky with a few not-so-intuitive choices made, but generally it's quite good. If there were an iPhone version (or rather, a version for smaller-than-tablet devices), it would have to have a completely different design. I like that with this, it stays true to the actual Survivor cards. Having the action tracker that updates according to player abilities is a very nice touch!

I'm not sure why someone would want a Windows version... Having a tablet on the gaming table is one thing - a computer - even a laptop - seems like a lot more hassle than just using the cards that come with the game.

But nicely done! Thanks!

I really like the app. I think it is great especially if everyone has a tablet. Passing to play is not so bad either but the app itself works pretty well.

lol, I'm not passing my tablet 200 dollar kindle around for anyone to use, let alone a 600 dollar ipad. Shouldn't be much of a issue here, I doubt they'll ever put one out that can be used on kindle anyway.

Can the Kindle Fire run Android apps? If so get that. But I'm with you, wanted the app but only have an iPhone. Getting married in a couple of months and trying to convince the wife (to-be) that we should spend some of our wedding gift money on a tablet!

The Kindle Fire does use Android. However, it cannot use GooglePlus so you cannot download the app. It needs to be through the Amazon store.

The Android version of this is very well done, I've used it on the Nexus 7 and it looks nice and even has some thematic sound effects (zombies moaning when you load it up, a siren that sounds when you hit the next XP level).

The one big glaring omission is the ability to add your own characters. At the moment it has the three Kickstarter promo characters in there, but if you want to use any of the yet to be released characters or go off the beaten track with custom characters, you will need to stick with the old fashioned method.

The only two other minor issues I've found are that when you combined the bottle and gas to create a Molotov with Dave, you only get one even though it correctly lists his skill (I assume you can go through the item cards and just manually give him another which is why it's not a major deal but would have been nice). The other issue is that there is no easy way to add experience outside of adding zombie kills or objective markers, so if you're playing a scenario that lets you gain XP in another way your recording won't be as accurate - again a really minor thing but would have been nice (I only mention it because they give the option to arbitrarily remove XP points but the only way to add them is by adding to zombie kill/objective totals, which might have different effects in custom scenarios).

Still, one of the most polished game companions I've seen to date.

Any plans to put the Android app on the Amazon app store for the Kindle Fire? Just saying as that's the route my family went.

Announcing the Zombicide Companion App 2.0!

Hello Zombiciders! We know you’ve been waiting a long time for a new version of the Zombicide app for iOS and Android and the wait is almost over!

Guillotine Games and Twisted Key Entertainment are happy to announce that you should be seeing the new app in an app store near you around May 2014!

On top of all the things you loved about the original, we’ve added many new features, here’s a sample of what’s coming:

– All survivors! (Almost) all expansions! – You’ll finally be able to play with any of the survivors and pretty much every expansion released so far! Missing expansions will be added very shortly after the app is released. Expansions that aren’t released yet will also make it into the app much faster going forward!

– Networking – You can now connect several devices together while playing, and each device can handle any number of survivors for your play session.

– In-app decks! – Tired of mixing and shuffling decks? Let the app do it for you! You can mix decks from several expansions at your heart’s leisure and draw cards inside the app itself! Of course, if you like the paper decks you can also keep using them!

– Zombivors, Ultrared Mode – You can now play as a Zombivor or play the game in Ultrared Mode!

– Retina graphics, improved interface – All graphics now use hi-res versions which look great with the newest retina displays! We’ve also improved app flow considerably and it should be easier than ever to use!

Season 1 content will continue to be free, as well as selected survivors from Season 2. Content packs for Prison Outbreak, Toxic City Mall and the upcoming Season 3, including all cards, survivors and equipment will be available for $2.99* – or get them all (including the upcoming Season 3 content) for the low price of $5.99*.
Smaller sets and Survivor bundles will be available for $0.99*.

We've spent a lot of time and effort improving the app and including all the new content, so we're charging a small fee for the extra content, but also to ensure you guys get the latest content ASAP and the maximum level of support for the app. We’re working hard to make this worth the wait, stay tuned to facebook.com/GuillotineGames and facebook.com/TwistedKey for more news!

*Pricing will vary by region and currency employed. These are the estimated prices for USA App Stores.

The updates sounds awesome. Nickel and dime-ing your customers who have already paid a tidy sum for the physical game is the opposite of awesome.

I've already succumbed to enough of your transparent ploys to squeeze more cash out of your enthusiastic player base, but at least I got something when I paid for those expansions and add-ons. I will not be paying extra for the privilege of unlocking the same expansion content in the app. Guess it just gets deleted.

Because apps just magic themselves into existence, right?
