Default Ever Used BattleScribe App?

I just bought an App on my phone called BattleScribe (Im using DROID), but I have no idea how to get the "Data" for the App. So my question is... Does anyone here use the App and know how to use it?

For those that dont know what this is about, its an App that helps you set up an army by points, ect... Its good for Warhammer Fantasy, 40k, ect...

Thanks

I use Battlescribe and I contribute to the Data project, it's against the terms and conditions of Heresy to link to sources but there is another forum on the internet that if you were to Arbitrarily Strike then you would find the data repository.

I am pretty sure if you read through the app, they tell you where to go to get the information you need. Great app though, I find it does freeze up every now and than.

no its a program that holds information about each unit in a codex then will automaticly calculate the points cost depending on the upgrades and unit strength etc.

I use army builder, output to a pdf, then email it to my phone. This app sounds like it could be better.

It is, since the app is on your phone you can make changes to your list on the fly or make new lists.

So, its just a fancy calculator, pencil and piece of paper?...I guess I must be old fashioned because even I don't see the point in that.
