'The app is great'

'The application is amazing so far and is super useful but is there any possibility you can add beyond 20 support so that we can
use it to roll dice on discord.'

'Wonderful app'

'I love this app and use it often. A few small things I wish it had were the ability to add and remove equipment and the ability
to do dice rolls in the app. Even more amazing would be creating characters and rolling stats in the app.'

'Great help, but there are a few problems in Beta'

'So I love the D&D beyond website for making characters for my campaigns, but since the app is still in it’s sort of early
stages, there are some (but not many) problems I’ve had, more or less just tedious little things. \nOne thing, not currently
able to edit anything on a completed character,

'I wish you could delete characters'

'This is an amazing site! I was in the middle of making my character, but then my phone ran out of battery. After I charged it and
opens the app back up, I have no way to edit it again or delete it. I would like an easily accessible option to delete it,

'Getting better with each update'

'Why don’t I have the option to choose where by modifiers go? As someone who uses the small box for mods and the large box for
scores. It takes me a long time to pull up these stats. Please either synch it to the selected option on the site. Or offer an
option on the app to fix it. As or right now

'Good but'

'The ONLY thing is that they don’t have all of the sub classes for all of the classes other then that it’s a great app, but I

'A great start!'

'This makes it easy to view your DND Beyond characters as a quick reference. I can’t recommend it enough for people who are
already using DND Beyond. \n\nThat said, two things are missing:\n1) A way to level up in the app\n2) A way to roll for
actions/damage etc. in the app\n\nBoth of these can be

'Great app!'

'This app streamlines the dnd beyond character sheet. It is quick and easy to switch between areas of the sheet to find what you
are looking for. Also DnD beyond updates this app about every week. Must have if you use DnD Beyond.'

'Update needed due to theros'

'I’m writing this because there needs to be a way to add select information like deity given feats at lvl 1, also would be nice
to have a selected area for theros based characters. App is great, a little irritating having to go to the secondary form to add
spells but not to difficult to do.'

'Very good, only one problem'

'I use D&D Beyond a lot to draft up my NPCs and possible PCs, so I really like this app. It’s a convenient way to access and
create new characters. However, I have a major problem with it. Once you’ve created the character on the app, or bring it over
from the website, you can’t edit the chara

'Could be better'

'I think this app as a lot of greatness but I think if you could edit and delete characters it could be better. But without that
the only use I use for it is when I have a character idea so I use the app and put it on paper later. I would use the app more if
it worked out a couple of the problems.'

than 5-stars because it is very clear with
