Hey guys,

I would like to share with you the results of multiple evenings I have spent while waiting for the release of our lovely game.
It's a mobile app, serving as a handy guide to WoW Classic.

"Classic Buddy" is a mobile app released on Android and iOS platforms, bringing together essentials of WoW Classic. Its development is driven based on feedback from the users. It is free and without ads from the very beginning of the project.

The idea was to provide a robust, working offline app bringing together essentials of WoW Classic in a simple form. Some (just like me) can find it useful while being away from the computer or when in need of quick info while playing.

I found this project entertaining as it could let me come back to WoW, restudy it after a long time break and of course learn new technologies.
I hope you will enjoy "Classic Buddy".

Currently, the following content is covered:

  • Racials and Traits for every in-game Race (incl. statistics)
  • Class Skills, Abilities, Pets, Talents (incl. calculator, build storage) and Quest Series with Rewards
  • Source and the pricing about in-game objects (abilities and items)
  • List of Recipes, Nodes and other details for each in-game Profession
  • Dungeon & Raids instance loot section
  • Favorite Items, Recipes, and Talent Builds
Please don't hesitate to share your feedback.

Android (Play Store): https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... _buddy_app
iOS (App Store): https://apps.apple.com/app/classic-buddy/id1477733804

Thanks to @teebling for most icons. :)

Yes, will attempt for it once I finish my vacations. In a week from now. Source code is multi platform, so from technical point of view there should be no issues.

Looking good!

Noticed that if you go to humans or dwarfs, it shows priests spells in their racials;

Hope you get this going! I can imagine its going to be a tremendous amount of work to add everything completely thats shown.

I believe this is correct, because they are Class/Race combination exclusive abilities. There is information in red color shown to be certain about requirements.

It's hard to answer really. I do work on it in my free time, beyond daily work and family time. It's my first mobile application and I used completely new to me technologies (I am "retired" programmer, doing management work on daily basis for 4 years).

If I would somehow attempt to measure it, I would say (considering 8h/day)
1-2 weeks of enabling to new tech stack
1 week of building app skeleton with appropriate architecture
1 week for interface design (some own components, i.e. talent calculator)
2 weeks of manual or semi-automatic content database fulfilling (races, classes, talents)
1 week for polishing and preparation for publication

Now it's much easier and faster for me to add something new as I know the essentials.
