Well, this is the first time I've purchased it, so we'll see. I spend a lot of time in the car, so I'll use the audio streaming frequently -- beats the heck out of XM which I primarily got for listening to games.

I listened to parts of a couple of games today and all went well. The UI is nice and clean.


i just sucked it up and bought it, i really can't see myself not getting $15 of use out of it over the course of the season. I really, really like that i can listen to any game from pretty much anywhere. also it's really easy to navigate, has lot's of information and loads quickly. being able to watch highlights is pretty cool as well, i just hope they can fix android to stream videos at some point.

I played Catan once in my life 2 yrs ago so I found the tutorial very helpful. My only complaint is that a game takes too long. I know that this is realistic but it took me forever to play my first game. I bought the app when it was first mentioned here and just finished the game yesterday.

I actually thought the games went too fast so I play up to 12 points. Playing against 3 CPU opponents takes 20-30 minutes.

Playing online at Catanworld though :-[ takes forever and people bail on games all the time.

I wouldn't play online mainly because nobody finishes games so how is the AI? I've heard bad things. I have it for 360 and I think the AI is pretty good, but I don't think it's anywhere near the same game as the iphone.

Well I lost the one game that I played. I thought that I had won b/c I thought that the victory card was worth 2 points (isn't it supposed to be?), the next round the CPU took over the longest road, knocked me down to 7 and a few rounds later won.

I think the AI's quite fine. I rarely see it do anything where I'm like "What the crap?"

Dragon Dictation is similar and sometimes works better IMO. Also Dragon Search. Both are free for now.

It allows you to put the transcribed text on the clipboard so that you can paste it into any app.
