Offline, Searchable Lore App (for Android) - Legends Library

Google Play: Link
Dev Blog: Link
FAQ: Link

The Legends Library compiles all of the in-game lore (ahem) Legends into a searchable database available for offline reading.

Lore from all three languages (English, Français, and Deutsch) are supported. App localization, however, is currently only available in English or Français. If you wish to help with localization – I very much would like a German-speaking volunteer! – please contact me. You only need the ability to access Google Docs.

You can keep an eye on the dev blog to be aware of future additions to the app.

THERE WILL NOT BE iOS SUPPORT. The reason why is covered in the FAQ linked above. Please read it! If you ask this question, I will ignore it. Maybe if Apple changes their policy (haha!), we’ll see.

If you do not have an Android device, but would still like to use the app (on your desktop or laptop), additional information about this can also be found in the blog FAQ.

Enjoy!

I have re-enabled Play Store distribution for Jellybean devices… or so I think. I do not have a physical device with Jellybean to test this and Google Play services on an emulated OS that old is spotty. The APK works just fine, but if the Play Store does not serve you the correct version, then please tell me! I am reachable by here, Twitter, email, Enjin, Discord, whatever.

Or you can just nab the download from my blog, which should be up shortly after this post. If you see a duplicate Legends app on your device, then just delete the older one.

The usual caveat applies:

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE OLDER VERSION IF YOU ARE ON ANDROID 9 / PIE. IT WILL NOT WORK!!!

Have a good Thanksgiving weekend, all! And to the rest of the world, Happy Thursday!

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

For the next several months, I will be in a position where I cannot work on updates. So on the off-chance that there are new Legends coming, it will have to wait until I get home. I have not abandoned this app. Just giving a heads up.
