I just released my an Android app for Arkham Horror. I'd love if some people tried it out. It manages the location and other world decks. And keeps a history of which encounters you've… encountered.
And for those that can't or won't use the Google Play www.dropbox.com/sh/lnu1zne3s0vjhk8/G7wh6hiJgi
I'll keep this updated but you won't be notified of the updates like you will be by Play.
Essentially I tried to make it a deck simulator. It supports drawing multiple cards (Gloria, Darrell, Hypnos, etc), selecting whatever OW colors are needed (Jim Culver), looking at the top card and replacing it face up, and even Curse of the Dark Pharoah's optional deck method of "remove the original encounter cards and only play with the expansion ones".
It does have a few problems;
1) It does not support King in Yellow's "expansion cards on top and don't shuffle" method.
2) Looks great on my phone! But I need to spend some more time to make it handle other resolutions (especially tablets). If it doesn't look good on your device let me know.
3) Doesn't handle "keep this card to remind you" except insofar as it will be in the history.
4) Other World is slow to load the first time or whenever it needs to shuffle. (Slowdown showed up last night. 'Fraid it is a result of making sure the Other World doesn't get shuffled if you close the app or if you just set the app down for a bit)
5) The UI may be confusing. 'Fraid I opted for ease and utility over clarity. Once you know what you are doing it is good though. It would be really useful to get some feedback from some seasoned Arkham players.
6) Oh, and I need a pretty graphic for the history (Hx) button.
I'd love to hear some feedback. Find out what people are interested in. For example I have no plans to support King in Yellow's "expansion cards on top and don't shuffle" but if people want it I can try to figure something out. I do hope to fix the Other World slowdown soon and will be in an ongoing battle to clarify the UI and support more resolutions.
I got a whole list of improvements and features to implement too!
*** SPOILERS: If you plan on giving me feedback on the clarity of the UI please try the app before reading the below ***
Here's some tips on using the app.
Expansion Selection screen
Menu->New Game will clear the history (Hx), shuffle all the decks and unselect all the expansions.
To "remove the original encounter cards and only play with the expansion ones" for Dark Pharaoh just select Dark Pharaoh and don't select Base
Train Icon goes to Locations and the gate icon goes to Other World
Other World Selection
Clicking on an other world (Abyss, Celeano, etc) autosets the colors and takes you to the Other World deck
Clicking on the colored pips selects and deselect different colors. Then click on the gate button bottom center to go to the Other World deck. Allows you to select abnormal combinations (useful for www.arkhamhorrorwiki.com/Darrell_Simmons)
Click the Hx button takes you to the hx deck
Click on the Neighborhood to go to the location deck you want.
Here is the most confusing part…
Swipe to "draw" more cards. This is needed for Gloria, Darrell and various encounters. It allows you to go through the entire deck if you want.
The little arrow next to the titles that isn't on actual cards? That is for selecting the encounter. Click on it to select which specific location encounter you did and it will shuffle the deck.
Hitting the back arrow replaces all the cards without shuffling. This is needed for "look at the top card and replace it face up" and is handy for "oops I clicked on a neighborhood by accident".
Menu->Shuffle to shuffle the deck without selecting an encounter
Other World Deck
Very similar to the Location Deck. It automatically skips colors you didn't select even when swiping.
Clicking the arrow doesn't shuffle (unless the card is Stars Are Right). It discards the card you select and all the cards skipped due to non-matching color or swiping. (Y'know to behave like the Other World deck. )
Clicking back replaces all the cards as they were without shuffling.
This just shows you what you've encountered. Showing the most recent first. Swipe through to view the older stuff.
