I find it annoying and impractical to go to the library to print off character sheets (I don't have a printer at my house), so I decided to see if there were any character sheet apps for my 4th gen iPod. There are a couple, but the only ones compatible cost money. I can afford both of them, but I'm not sure which is best (I don't want to wind up buying one that doesn't work properly). One is RPG Scribe, which is 2 dollars. The other is real sheet unlimited: D&D 3.5 edition, which is 3 dollars. Which one should I get?

My preference is to use online sheets, particularly those at The Tangled Web. You can even save the Web page and open it on any device that has a browser, even without internet, though your character picture may not work depending on how it gets saved.

These are free, and pretty thorough in terms of details. I have never felt even the slightest need to pay for a sheet, not have I known anyone who has bought one.

I used the tangled web for awhile, but now it won't let me log on, so I can't access my character sheets... –  Ze Demon Pyro Feb 20 '14 at 22:46
@ZeDemonPyro I just logged out and logged back in with no trouble. Have you tried resetting your password? Failing that, have you tried contacting the site’s admins? –  KRyan Feb 20 '14 at 23:15
Yeah I just did both, hopefully I don't wind up having to remake my characters... –  Ze Demon Pyro Feb 21 '14 at 12:52

I have developed a free good solution as school project, but for Android device only, sorry. I leave the link here in case someone else read the thread and is interested, since the title doesn't specify iPod (or any iOS device).

It has very basic design but like the name mention it, it provides dice and paper: you can define your character sheet template, then fill it and launch dice (even sort 50d10 for World of darkness adepts). You can also export/import character sheet templates so that your whole team get the same kind of character sheet.
