'Dungeons & Dragons' levels up with a new 'D&D Reader' app that digitizes all the books
Plenty of ardent fans have picked up PDF versions of different books over the years. The Reader app is a bit more robust than that, however, to make hunting down a piece of information easier for the rules-heavy game.
Each book is broken up into different sections. So with, say, the Player's Handbook, you can tap on little thumbnails in your library to check out the introduction, a step-by-step guide to character creation, a rundown of races, individual sections for each character class, equipment, and all the other pieces that, together, form the D&D Player's Handbook.
The app lets you purchase any paywalled parts of each book piecemeal. If, for example, you'll only ever care about rolling a bard, you can just buy that. Prices for individual sections are $3 or $5 (depending on what you buy) and the three full rulebooks — Player's Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master's Guide — are $30 apiece for everything.
D&D Reader hits Android and iOS app stores this fall (Northern Hemisphere).
