iCodex...Codex Space Marines in the iTunes Store
I have to admit, I am surprised that GW actually got motivated enough to put out a digital codex.
And they did it the right way. This isn't a PDF of the printed codex. It's enhanced to 320-something pages, and it adheres to the iOS UI conventions. Individual shots of each codex chapter, updated ruleset, etc.
So think about the possibilities here. FAQs that automatically update the codex. Errata. Consistency across the board. All the things that make digital preferable.
And then the haters arrived. Of the 30 or so comments (as of this writing) on GW's Facebook post about this release, most of the comments were negative because it wasn't also offered to Android users. Seriously? The iBooks version is out for a few hours, and people are bitching?
As I said, I am pretty impressed that GW did this before the end of the iPad's lifecycle. Let's face it, they play it pretty conservative when it comes to changes. So instead of complaining, just this one time, can we try to encourage GW to keep going with this line of thought? Please?
