IGN has recently released their Guild Wars 2 map and information app for apple devices.  It features a character planner, access to their wiki, and much more.  You can download the app here. For those of you with iOS devices and have been able to spend a fair amount of time with it, be sure to sound off and let us know what you think of it.

Have to agree with you, although it's a wonderful application, I wish it was for droid/W8P.

considering android has a much higher market share than ios, I'm really not sure what they are accomplishing by only releasing it to apple products.

The actual market share of iOS is pretty massive. iPad sales are somewhere up there with PC sales and iPhone market share isn't exactly small or negligible so they probably manage just fine without having to put in the effort to push it out to Android or WP8 users.

Would get it, but I only have Android. Hopefully they'll release it on Android sometime.

Oh, also, don't post things like "apple customers are mindless sheep", or "Androids are cheap crap" (Examples, neither were directly said, but similar things were), it only inspires flame wars.

Yeah it was. I'm pretty sure the build editor among many other things were out of date. Maybe they released an update for it?

So people need planners to play a game? Why explore when you can be told what's available in mere seconds!

Android? What's that? ;)

But yeah, it has been a while since we've heard anything on the app front. I mean, the official app front. I searched in the app store a few months ago for a Guild Wars 2 app, but all it came up with were half-made £2.99 things that had the basic information from the wiki. I never bought them, but the screenshots told me a lot :P

"expert tutorials to help get you from Level 1 to Level 80."

Because it's so damn hard to understand how to get there.

Needs to be for adroid. ):

That typo couldn't be more accurate when it comes to describing the Android OS!

Anyway nice to see a decent app out there since ANet are yet to speak about their mobile app which was incorporating guild chatting from your phone.

This application was obviously made to assist those who find that difficult.  Not everybody can be an expert ala Juansome.

I guess they need a leveling guide for a game that gives you XP for everything you do including rezzing people.

Maybe if it was for WP8 or Android and was official (Read: up to date) I would be interested, but otherwise, meh.

True. One of  reason iPads are so popular, is because Apple is very good at marketing their products. But, if you peel away the hype, it's really not worth the money. It may be ok for the general user but past that it kind of falls short. Do not get me started on its durability.

Yes but we live in a world where nothing is worth anywhere near what it's sold for xD. In all honesty, I would much rather have something I know is relatively durable with an aluminium encasing than a plastic android tablet. You're also paying for an aesthetic, which is a lot of what it comes down to (yes thats ridiculous, but its true). Nobody does hardware design like apple (don't get me started on their software design though, it's gone downhill at a steady rate and I wouldn't be surprised is apple is designing the worlds worst looking software in a couple of years time...)

Character Planner is OK, getting the tactics is not so user friendly, hard to move around to check tactics and compare.

The 2nd weapon set sometimes do not show up.

Other than that everything is fine.

The character planner looks okay.   I wish the interactive map had text on it.    

I wonder if ArenaNet is still working on their app.
