Could the Rules and FAQ be added to the X-Wing App?

Just drop it in iBooks. It’s searchable and easy.

Like any PDF viewer.... Not sure how you can look at it without it being searchable.

The issue is it would be nice to open it right in the app and not have to switch over to another application, as well as having rules hotlinked to stuff in the app. Like a small button, you could click that would open up the FAQ reference for the pilot you are looking at. These are things the application should be able to do if they actually did a good job developing it.

A searchable rules database with hyperlinks to the RRG's glossary entries would be a very nice addition to the app.

I agree, and hope the app improves and becomes a professional level product. But in the meantime I made a searchable Rules Reference with working hyperlinks for key words that might come in handy:

Yes it is a good idea, but first of all  ffg should probably work to solve the millions  of problems of the app......

No dials, the app crash continiously , no condition card visible and once you saved your squadron you can't read the card unless you modify.

That should come after the ability to consistently do math. It’s ridiculous that squads have different point values depending on which screen you’re on. 

I haven’t noticed this, are you sure you aren’t using the variable cost upgrades?

A guy I played at our league this Thursday didn’t know if his barrage rocket swarm was 198 or 200 because it was 198 in his list of saved squads and 200 when he opened it. No variable upgrades  

We had to do the math ourselves, like peasants! It was awful!

Lol nice haha, can’t wait for the first tourney where someone makes cut with an illegal list because of the app.

The app technically lets you save as many squad points as you want... so 1000 point lists?

What is the point?   You still wouldn't be able to look at it offline..

Well yeah. Ideally they would have an app that works offline, but again that's an improvement, so not likely to happen.
