Destiny Companion App Review on iOS

destiny_iconThe biggest game in the universe right now is Destiny. I don’t think there’s a gamer alive right now that doesn’t know about it and according to the latest news, it’s one of the highest selling games of all time. Of course that’s not what I’m here to talk about today. Today I am reviewing the Destiny Companion app that every Destiny player should download. The app actually came out during the time that Destiny Beta was out but now that the final game is available, now is a good time to talk about it.

If you’ve used companion apps before for your games, then you know for the most part, you use them to compliment your gaming experience. In the case of the Destiny Companion app, its main features are that of providing the latest Destiny news from Bungie, being able to track your various stats and gear, and providing a way to view all the Grimoire cards you collect throughout the game. On top of that, the Destiny Companion also makes it easy to manage your load outs before each mission.

If you play Destiny, you really should be using the Destiny Companion. It’s a valuable resource for news and information, but mostly, it extends your Destiny gameplay experience. My favorite reason for using it though is just the sheer amount of information the app has. The Gromoire cards have so much information and back story that it really adds to the whole Destiny mythos. It’s great for those who just want to know more about what is going on in the game and not just for those who are stat tracking. You will have a greater understanding of the story if you use it to view the Grimore cards you collect.

I’ve used other companion apps in the past, but I think the Destiny Companion is one of the best so far. Not only in the information it gives, but the experience is very polished and smooth. It’s easy to navigate and seems to sync quite quickly with your online profile. Overall its a fantastic app for any Destiny fan who is currently playing the game and a must have.
