Hi guys,

I'm trying not to self-promote here, but I thought I'd post because it might be useful to some of you.

I've created an iOS & Android app for New Leaf, which gives info on all of the bugs, fish, events and projects in the game. I thought it'd be helpful for those who don't want to purchase the guide, but still want easy access to information (it works offline too).

When you catch a bug/fish you can mark it as "caught", then when you're looking at the list of fish/bugs the ones you've already caught have a tick next to them, which allows you to see which ones you haven't already caught.

It's completely free because I wanted everyone to have access to it, but it does have an ad in it at the bottom (similar to ACC really, I need it to keep the server maintained).

You can find more information, screenshots and download links for both the iOS App Store and Google Play at http://www.jrustonapps.com/apps/acnl-guide. It'll be available in the Amazon App Store shortly for Kindle users.

Let me know what you think of it if you get the chance, always happy to listen to people

Thanks!
Jake

You are my saviour, jake!

Was wishing for someone to make a app for New leaf!

I will make sure to share this on my tumblr aswell.

Will you make it as an iPad app at any point? I feel much more comfortable using my iPad!

I really appreciate that! Thank you

I was looking for an app for New Leaf as well, so when I couldn't find one I just decided to make one myself instead.

I will definitely look into making it as an iPad app There's a tablet layout for Android users already, so I'll do my best to make it for iPad as well.

This is really cool! I love the design, very simplistic. If I could make some suggestions, how about a search option in the top right, or just by touching the magnifying glass on Android devices, that would be very helpful. Also, how about adding diving items too, and paintings? And maybe in-game pictures, and also adding how to get certain projects. Very nice app though, I love it! Thanks much, will definitely use it!

My brief feedback after just a few minutes of use... and I'm sorry for repeating what may have already been mentioned.

1. Where are the diving catches?

2a. It would be useful to have a 'view all' option for fish/bugs, exclusive of the month. I've caught some on the island that aren't listed under June. I had to go through a few months until I found the ones I wanted to check off. If there was an alphabetical 'view all' option they would have been quicker to find.

2b. Additionally or alternately to the 'view all' would be a search form.

3. It would also be useful to 'view all' by month exclusive of the species... meaning, list ALL of the creatures that are available in the month. That way you can tell if you should concentrate on fishing or bug hunting.

4. It would be nice to view only "uncaught" items. Just shortens up the list to see what you need.

Added bonus would be to have fossils, paintings, etc... other museum donations. Gyroids, flowers, fruit, tools also, but on the bottom of the want list.

All in all, a fantastic start! I was making a spreadsheet and wished I had the know-how to make it into an app. Glad someone did it!

Thanks to everyone for their support

"Where can we submit errors and will you be adding Diving things?  This app is awesome. Thanks!"


If you notice any errors just message me and I can correct them. I will be adding diving things (see my reply below).

Some good suggestions here, thanks. Diving items will be added shortly (see further down this message). The other things I will definitely look into

Really appreciate the detailed feedback here

1. Diving catches will be added in the next day or 2. The reason why they aren't there is because I didn't have full access to the list of bugs & fish when I was compiling the data together (which was before the game was released). I'll be receiving the official guide tomorrow, so I'll use that to help add anything missing.

Note that the app will stay in sync with the data on my server, so I'll add the diving catches myself and then they'll appear in the app automatically without you needing to update the app.

2. Mentioned above, good idea.

3. Another good idea

4. I can look into this too, as well as fossils, paintings and other things.

Thank you

You should also add the little quotes for the fish and bugs!

- You're missing Grasshopper, Jewel Beetle and Fruit Beetle in June.

- You should also add shadow size for fish and rarity.
