    D&D Insider Compendium Searcher for iPhone

    Hello,

    I have completed a beta version an iPhone-compatable website for searching the D&D Insider Compendium. Right now it only supports searching monsters, but if there is enough interest and usage of the tool I will most likely expand it to include other things that can be searched using the D&D Insider Compendium API. It is designed for use on the iPhone but it might look okay on other smartphones, and does work in Firefox and Safari on desktop computers as well.

    Here is a link to the tool. Please check it out and let me know what you think, especially if you are an iPhone user.

    I implemented this tool using the published API for the D&D Insider Compendium. Some information about the API can be found at these links:
    gamingincode.com/?p=76
    gamingincode.com/?p=108
    (Note that this article basically points to another articles on the D&D Insider site which has been unavailable for over a week; they might have intentionally taken the article down or it might be an oversight - I'm not sure).

    This tool could definitely use some usability improvements, but it is functional, and I'm hoping to get some feedback on how useful it is, and what features would make it more useful. Please post feedback / comments / questions here and I will respond.

    Thanks,

    ~ Justin

    I'd give it a spin but I don't have a DDI sub at the moment.

    I'm using a T-Mobile G3 Android phone now. I'll give this a go and see how well it works.

    Works fine on Win Mobile. Will the final be able to search magic items, traps, etc. as well as monsters?

    Good to hear that it is working on WinMobile. And yes, eventually you will be able to search all types of things. I'm just working on getting the application to a stable, usable point with monsters before I move on to the other things.

    I have made some look & feel improvements to the tool, and I have completed the Items search. Also, the site URL has changed so if you have bookmarked please change them to the following:
