I want to start by saying this is probably the best app of its kind; free from the bugs of other similar apps, an attractive user interface, and useful features.However, there are a number of things that could use some improvement. First and foremost, the search results need a better algorithm. When you search for a game it usually comes far down the search results list below a bunch of less pertinent content. There needs to be an algorithm that sorts the search results by relevancy.Second, the option to rate games. I think adding the option to add a rating for games you have played would be a useful feature that many users would be interested in.Lastly, sorting of lists. There is currently no function in which you can sort your lists which I find to be frustrating because I would like to have my collection sorted alphabetically. Adding in a sorting (and possibly filtering) function would go a long way to help users organize their collection.
I’m a lifetime gamer, and gaming is a true passion of mine. However, life is busy, and being an “adult” can sometimes get in the way of that passion. Well, this app giving me the ability to track my backlog, also allows me to track my gaming accomplishments. It’s so nice (and fluid) to have everything you want to digitally compile about your own personal gaming lists is aggregated into one place. Not to mention, the community aspect, reviews, and recommendations, are a great addition. Can’t recommend this enough for any and all gamers from all walks of life!
So far, I’m absolutely blown away and in love with the design of this app! It is one of the best catalog apps for Gamers that you can find on the App Store right now. That being said, the ability to organize lists and sort lists is much needed tool but was promised by the dev in a feedback email. At its current state and considering future updates to come, this app is necessary for any gamer.
This is what I’ve been looking for in an app and a website. Clean UI, simple and easy to use, large catalog of games and information. What I would like to be added however:- the ability to edit what games are in your list from WITHIN the list I.e. you can add games from the list rather than having to go to the game page and THEN adding it to the list of choice (both on the mobile and desktop versions). - the ability to add data to a game entry I.e. what platform you played/bought it on (PS4, XB1, Steam, GOG etc)- Profile picture that isn’t a gravatarOverall great app and can’t wait to be adding more and more content to it and using it for years!
I love using Letterboxd for movies, it’s an obsession of mine. I’ve been looking an app like that for games for a while. This is the closest experience to Letterboxd I could find. The design is great. I would like to see some more sorting options in the future. Being able to sort by year or console would greatly help in cataloging games. I would also like to see support for lists. I want to be able to rank console libraries or games of the year. Lastly we need a review system!
Full disclosure: I’ve been involved/aware of this app for awhile. Pretty much since the beginning. I’m stoked that it’s finally out and have been enjoying a lot of the basic framework. It gives me an easy way to keep track of my games, backlogs, and my wishlists. The interface is pretty easy to understand and clean. I dig that. Keep it up man! Looking forward to seeing what else he does with this!
I’m so happy to have found this, and I think it could get even better than it is.I’ve seen a lot of people say this is the “Letterboxd of games” and I couldn’t have said it better. It’s easy to use and keep track of things and the social aspect is fun.Although, there are more things I’d like to see expanded upon (I might make a lot of comparisons to Letterboxd):-One thing is to be able to like and comment on reviews, as that would create more room for conversation and just make the social aspect more fun and help people meet and follow others who they enjoy-Another thing is a better search algorithm, because I’ve seen a few people say and I agree that the title I’m looking for is below many others-One more thing that I think would be fun is to include the credits for games (such as the director, composer, artists, etc.) so you could click on there name and see what else they have worked on and in what area, like in Letterboxd.I understand I’m asking a lot but there’s no rush. This app is going to be my new obsession and I can’t wait to see it grow!
i really really like this app! it’s got a very nice interface, some helpful features and a good amount of games are accounted for. Unfortunately, the app crashes very frequently. It crashes when attempting to submit a request for a new game, it crashes occasionally when i make a new list and at various other times as well. I’ll continue to use it in the hopes this will be fixed, but eventually i’ll have to abandon it if it isn’t.
The ability to write reviews, make lists, rank games, follow people, and have a simple Played,Beat,Playing,Abandoned system is great. Only things I would suggest are adding things like displaying the stars you’ve given games directly on your list, and the ability to add games to a list from within that list instead of needing to leave the list and go to the search tab.
Let me say that I’m really glad theres finally an app like Letterboxd for video games. It’s really nice to have such cohesive lists and stuff, but it’s easy to see this is in a very early stage. The most prominent thing to add would be the ability to rate games out of 5 or 10, as that would add a better place for discussion and review. The search function can also be improved, as the game I search for is often far down the list of results, even after I type the exact title. But apart from those and lame loading times, I really enjoy this app and I really want to see it improve over time.
