    lol nevermind. the app is free but you have to pay for every bit of content.

    is it worth it? or is it just better to open the wiki of ice and fire on your phone's browser?

    I mean I've spent $5 on far worse things. the art work is pretty cool though and it's much easier to navigate than a wiki though it has less information and nothing in terms of theories. what sets it apart from the wiki imo are the maps. they're really cool and you can click on every landmark and it takes you to a description. that alone is probably worth my $5.

    FWIW, I'm asking for The Lands of Ice and Fire (GRRM sanctioned maps book) and the Game of Thrones HBO guide for Christmas. I want to own every piece of ASIOAF memorabilia at some point, but I probably wouldn't buy either of these things new for myself.

    The companion book I'm really looking forward to is the World of Ice and Fire, which it looks like is the same thing as this app but in book for. The book was supposed to be out by this October but, true to form with anything GRRM, the release has been delayed.

    the world of ice and fire is going to be a must purchase. it's going to be much deeper than this app.

    Yeah, which makes me even more mad. The wiki said it was supposed to be out this October but now they're saying October 2013.
