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.

It's better than the bgg app, but since the latest update, it crashes a lot and doesn't post to bgg reliably. It also doesn't delete a play from bgg that was deleted on this app. Waiting for full sync capabilities with bgg!!

Works great! Smooth and fast interface. It does miss some features yet, but what is there works brilliant! When they implement some more features it will be an easy 5 star rating.

Great app. I have been recording my plays for over a year and find it fast and easy to enter a play into. Use it to know about hot deals for games on sale and read topics about games using the forum. Still missing some features but one of my most used apps.

Great app, a couple of limitations Love this app. Quick access to my collection, forums, and links to the website. Would like to add to my collection from the app, instead of having to follow through to the full site. Would also like to post to the forum from the app.
