I hope that Hex Map is very intuitive, but a few features are rather subtle. So allow me to explain a few things.
Q: Tapping the + button adds a token to the middle of the board, but what if I want to add a token to a specific space on the board?
A: Just double-tap wherever you want a new token. It’ll be centered in the nearest space on the board.
Q: Oh that is easy. But what if I don’t want the new token to be a blue circle with a ? in the middle by default?
A: You used the magic word. See the Default button on the token-edit control panel? Tapping that sets the current settings to be the default for any tokens you add (until we change the default again).
Q: What if I want to clone an existing token?
A: Double tap on the token you want to clone; hit Default; then double tap where you want the new token.
Q: If a double tap on a token brings up the token editor, what does a single tap do?
A: A single tap “raises” that token to the top so that’s it’s “higher” than all over tokens. This only matters when tokens are overlapping in some way.
Q: Sometimes when I try to move a token I end up moving the whole board. That’s rather annoying, any tip for that?
A: Sure, that’s what the Lock Board option is for (the lock icon on the iPhone version and the Lock Board setting on the iPad version.
Q: That token-edit control panel gets in the way sometimes. Why didn’t you make it draggable?
A: It’s not draggable but you can move it to either side. Just swipe across the control panel and it’ll gracefully slide to the other side of the screen. Try it; it’s fun.
Q: On the iPad version you have that “flag” feature. What’s that for?
A: Excellent question. You tell me. How do you use it? Would you prefer if it there were more room for text?
That’s all I have for now. I welcome your comments and suggestions (and nice reviews in the App Store).
