Just downloaded app and it seems pretty useful.  Is there a place to get instructions for it?  The website has nothing.  I don't seem to be able to change adventures to work on them, don't know where to download monsters from, can download characters from ddi but can't bring them up to edit or add to an adventure, and a few other questions as well.
rrrsenal, you can view the quick guide here: it should cover most things, if you have any other questions please emails us from the Contact page and we will help in anyway we can.
Android Support is here!
