Standard Answer to all 5E rules questions: "Ask your DM."
I use i4e for all my characters, and I love it. It makes people at the table jealous. In my opinion, it beats the pants off the character builder sheets.The only drawback is that you have to enter all the information manually. You can import character builder data, which will set all your figures correctly, but you'll still have to type in power descriptions yourself.

I've read some reviews, and I know there are people here that use digital resources like masterplan, but I'd like to hear from anyone who has actually used any of the iPxxx applications.Thanks in advance!
OK, so I got the i4e, and I'm not so into it. It doesn't play nice with my iPad, and really although uploading the file from the character builder is nice I like using a pdf displayed on the iPad better the the i4e app.I also downloaded the DM helper app, but really for me the free initiative iPad app does what I need. For everything else I still like scrap paper.Just thought I'd chime back in now that I used the apps a bit.
The Compendium Helper was by far my favorite application for iPhone PERIOD. It stopped working (I am assuming due to WOTC blocking content), but I had been trying to reinstall... Now it's gone from the store. I am crushed. The Compendium Helper was the only thing that made by DDI subscription worth the money. I don't understand this at all from WOTC. I paid for the content and now I can't even use it. If they want to build their own branded app that functioned the same way that would be cool, but they don't even seem to have any interest in building their own apps (which is also inexplicable if they are trying to have any tech cred). This is ridiculous. The web based Compendium is clunky and hardly usable on a PC let alone on my iPhone. The Compendium Helper was a FREE app! Just pay the guy a couple bucks and brand it as your own WOTC! Come on.
itunes.apple.com/us/app/battle-map/id384...www.148apps.com/news/idd-battlemap/This just got released recently. I only got iPhone 4 so smaller screen but definitely wanna check it out.
My DDI Compendium app was just released on iPad, You can find it here, for now its a free app.Just does basic searches right now but it will most likely improve over time.
Theres an update in right now that allows for searching outside of just the titles. It also adds iPhone support. There are plans for a pro version to be done in the next few months that will have much more powerful filtering than the free app.
i4e got an iPad update today, wow what a sexy beast. This is just a raw import, I haven't filled in all the details yet. The way he's done the powers is very cool, click on it and a power card pops up. Once it's used it can be greyed out of just disappear off the list.
