SUMMARY: A virtual customizable dicebag for the Android platform

DroidDice is an app for the Android platform that allows you to generate dice rolls instantly with your phone. This app isn’t complicated at all and may not appeal to a majority of Android phone users, but for the true geeks out there, this is quite the app.

The app comes equipped with a full dice bag, meaning you can roll everything from a d4 to a d20. This is pretty handy considering that’s about all you need for the average gaming session. On the main screen you’ll see all six of those dice combinations laid out for you to select. Tapping them will roll the dice and show you the results at the top of the screen.

Whenever you’re playing a game, you usually have multiple different dice you have to roll at once. This app compensates for this by allowing you to create your own dice set. You can add as many dice to that set as you would like in whatever combination works best for you, but when you roll that set, you’ll only be able to see about 40 dice at a time. Chances are, you won’t really have to worry about rolling more dice than that in one turn.

With the ability to name your sets, this tool would be perfect for both players and GM’s alike. This app is definitely well built and perfect for what it’s meant to do but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.
