    NICE APP

    There is nothing wrong with maps and the informtion provided is quite useful. One thing I would add is more of the minor houses being grouped.

    Very helpful app! I Love Game of Thrones!

    This is an awesome app to have while reading or watching the series! The maps worked great for me. Tons of info to help you follow the many characters and storylines. When you first open the app, you must choose how far you've read into the books. This is a spoiler setting that you can change as you progress in the series by touching the menu button at the bottom that will be next to your wifi strength signal. This app is a must if you're a Game of Thrones addict like me!!

    Good info, but needs improvements

    The info provided is great. However, as many others have said, the maps only loaded the first time, and will not display after that. Also, the interface is a little primitive and could be a little slicker. I'd like to see family tree charts included. Still, a pretty useful reference.

    Meh.

    I have the same problem - the maps load once and then thet are gone. Also I had hoped for some info on the customs and day to day life, but there is none. This is a sad excuse for a companion.

    Lame - beyond lame. I AM connected to wi-fi but maps load only once. If you don't care about the maps, then I guess the app is helpful.

    Won't download

    I would love to say I loved this app but it says it is installing and nothing happens. Considering I paid for it I would like it if it worked.

    Good app

    Good information with some errors and misspelling. I see some info is from Wikipedia, which explains the errors.

    Ambitious but flawed

    Great info on charecters and houses. The maps in this app can be found in the book. The spoiler free feature does not always work so be careful!!!
