Must have. Best MTG app for any player or starting Judge.
A great resource for serious Magic judges and players, containing all the important documents (IPG, JAR, CR and MTR) in addition to a comprehensive list of all the cards and their Oracle text plus official FAQ entries. The rules text is presented in a well structured way, which makes reading more easy, and it is all tied together by an intuitive and intelligent search function – now I no longer need to struggle with iBooks’ cryptic search results. The author has clearly a very good understanding of usability principles.I like the fact that there is an iPad version, and that an Internet connection is only needed for updating the database, which is great when judging abroad. Also no need to wait for an app update whenever new cards are released or there is a change in one of the documents – you’re always up to date.The author is actively working on the app, another reason why the money is well spent.Wish list: 1) harvest the Gatherer for rulings 2) identify examples in the CR text and display them in a different style (e.g. indented and/or cursive).
Very information with the latest up to date rules on the game and cards and card list and abilities. Updates are frequent so you will always have latest info right at you fingertips.
