My bad, should have said "growing faster".
.Aka, there's been more android phones sold in q1 2010 than iphones. Not exactly the same thing.
After using the app for the first time in game last night I'd like to give some feedback
PLEASE make it stop the annoying 'zoom in/zoom out' thing every time you roll the dice. Worst example of this is when you roll a righteous success on an expertise die. For a start, it should recognise a righteous success and immediately roll another die for me anyway, but when it doesn't, I have to tap-hold on the screen to zoom out, a new expertise die, tap on that then roll again. At which point the app then zooms back in every time.
Just leave me on the 'zoomed out' view all the time, there really is no need to give me that extra couple of centimeters screen view.
Expertise die: I've already said when I roll a righteous success automatically roll me another expertise die but I think it's worth repeating
Total: on the dice summary, please net off the banes/boons and successes/challenges. I know it's easy subtraction but the computer can do that calculation quicker than I can so make it do so!
I like the app and do use it during games - though it sometimes is a pain having to pick the phone up and shake it to get the dice rolled. A simple roll button could speed this up.
Just got this app and I agree with most of the comments. Put all the die types on the screen at once. Righteous success should auto-roll. Have the results screen give you the net result and not just sum the dice up or even better have it show both. In addition to really make it a useful tool I'd like to see some increased functionality in a future version so that you could track a creatures A/C/E through it as well. I have plenty of dice and counters but usually put them out for the players. I'd love to have a nice little app that I could use as the GM to track all that stuff. Especially if you make an ipad version that takes advantage of it's extra real estate.

I'd purchase this app if it were given a bit more utility. I'm not so interested in a dice roller, but a GM toolkit including form fillable sheet PDFs, encounter helpers (Tracker tool, Initiative track, A/C/E budgets, etc.), and the like would make it worth as much as $10 to me.
Please add the ability for the expertise die to "explode" on its own when it rolls a "+". I built this into costume die on Dicecomocon and its works great, and it is much more intuitive.
Unfortunatley when I asked them if there was going to be an andriod app they pointed at a crappy little phone game app on andriod that didnt sell and say that because of that they see no market in andriod apps
