BoardGameGeek


This app searches the board game data from BoardGameGeek (aka, BGG, Board Game Geek, or just the Geek) at boardgamegeek.com. It's not a game itself - it's a reference tool that provides information about board games.


Features include:
• Viewing, sorting, and filtering your collection.
• Search for games.
• Log and view your plays. They are more advanced logging options and features here than on the website.
• View your GeekBuddies and their collections.
• View forums. Note that images are not loaded by default and are intentionally replaced by ugly placeholders. Clicking the ">" will open an individual post with all of the images displayed as you would expect.


Not supported (at least not yet):
• Can't add or modify your collection.
• Can't post to forums.
• No subscription viewing.
• No GeekMail.


Permissions
Since people want to know, requested permissions are due the following features:
• Modify USB storage - store game images so they don't have to be downloaded each time
• Accounts (add, remove, create, find, and use) - add your BoardGameGeek account to the list of known accounts
• Sync - regularly keeps your local data in sync with your information on the web


The code is GPLv3: http://code.google.com/p/boardgamegeek

One of two complementary BGG apps. This one's better for looking up the details of games, but doesn't record plays.

About the only useful function is logging plays. It'd actually easier than the raw website. Other than that...

Sign in after reboot I love this app, but the last update causes app to forget login credentials every time I restart the device. Fix this and add ability to add games to collection for my 5 stars. Searching forums would be great too. Thanks!
