character builder app for tablets

I have a Nexus 7 tablet. It would be awesome to pull up the character builder and not have to print out my character sheet every time we played.

What is the possibility of this?
I use DnD Buddy.
Ksheet is pretty good. Imports directly from the CB.
A buddy of mine made one for Win 8 and Windows RT

apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/cha...

It looks pretty slick and it's free.

The OP has a Nexus 7, so he will need an Android app.
Anyway, since we are it, here is another one for W8 we are usign ourselves:

apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/4em...

By going for the paid version you get the direct import from DDI too.   
    

Well, this is the proper moment for some shameless self promotion. I see some beautiful apps for Windows 8 have been already published, and I am intrigued by how much work people have put into this (parsing a .dnd4e file is not trivial).  It's also interesting that there are already 3 relevant apps for Windows 8.
I want to propose something slightly different: an interactive character sheet which allows for rolling your powers and skills seeing the way they are calculated, and is both mouse and touch-friendly. It's called Character Compendium, and it's free while in beta (so grab it and test it now, to get the update for free ;)).

Features



  • Synchronization between devices and with your D&D Insider account

  • Loading *.dnd4e files

  • Never again lost in a sea of options: You can use semantic zoom to only see your melee powers, your rituals or your immediate actions!

  • Damage tracking, together with powerful features like taking short rests and refreshing your used powers

  • Built-in combat and non-combat views provide predefined filters for your powers, items and rituals, but you can change which powers are visible in each view

  • Rolling powers, handling criticals etc! 


Known Issues 



  • The option (weapon) choice flyout sometimes appear in two places simultaneously

  • Account sharing might cause some error messages and minor synchronisation problems. If you use the same dnd insider account with two different microsoft accounts (which you shouldn't do anyway ;)), try not to update the same character from both accounts.

The first update, fixing some bugs, hit the store. A much more important one is under way!

I try to point out the causes of some of the last errors I find in the logs. Does anyone from the UK or Poland have problem with saving the state of the app (for example reloading the app and having lost their changes)?
