As World of Warcraft has grown, so too has the number of tasks that players are able to complete every day. In the original version of the game, the most a player would have to manage was attendance to dungeon groups. Over a decade later, players now have a pile of daily missions to attend to, along with missions on which they can send their own followers. Thankfully, Blizzard has simplified at least part of this process by updating its World of Warcraft app. Blizzard's gone through a few iterations when it comes to the World of Warcraft app, but the latest really seems to be the most relevant. Instead of a glorified stat-finding tool, the company now focuses on moving at least a portion of the game out of the traditional MMO world and on to a smaller screen. The Class Halls are full of tasks that don't really require the full graphical interface of the game to accomplish but are nonetheless important to the overall grind of the end-game. Adding them to an app seems like a fair compromise to all of those who want a way to interact with the game without actually playing the game. While it's nice to play around with some of the more tedious activities on the app, it does seem like there could be more features from older World of Warcraft apps added. Having access to the armory would be nice, especially when sending followers on missions that can help to upgrade legendary weapons. Even bringing back the old chat functionality would do something, especially since players do have to have an active account to use the app. The biggest downside of all, though, is that the app can't be used at the same time as the game. It'd be nice to be able to take care of some lingering follower missions while on a long flight path, but that's simply not possible in the current iteration. The newest version of the World of Warcraft app is great for current subscribers who have already hit the latest expansion, but not so great for anyone else. You can only use the app if you have unlocked the relevant content and have an active subscription, so don't expect to get your WoW fix here if you aren't already playing. If you do have a subscription and you are trying to manage follower missions, though, you'll find this app to be a great companion to the main game.
