Playgroup 2.0.0 is now available

May 23, 2023 16:00


It's been quite some time but after several months of intensive development, incorporating 15,000 lines of code, removing 2,000 lines, and modifying over 300 files, we are pleased to announce that Playgroup 2.0 is now available.

We have redesigned the Playgroup app with mobile first in mind now, most screens are now designed portrait with only the life counter part itself designed for portrait. Sadly there is a bug on iOS where we can't force the orientation, so please note that you will have to rotate your iOS devices yourself until this bug gets fixed upstream. We also added some of the website functionality to the app, mainly your game overview, detail pages and deck & account creation.

Some of the other new features:

  • Completely new design with improved UX
  • Game summaries can now be viewed directly from the app
  • You can do damage to all players or all opponents now
  • You can let the app pick a random deck for you to play this game
  • You can now easily create a new account from the app, even during matches. Your playgroup mates have no more excuses not to join :slight_smile:
  • You can also add new decks straight from the app.
  • Faster performance and lower bandwidth usage: We added a caching layer for all commander images that will ensure you never download an image twice.
  • Useful help pages on first launch

Please test it out for your next playgroup get together and let us know how it goes!
