Tablet or mobile phone version

Most likely, a tablet or mobile phone version would be a separate, and more limited, product, in order to fit it into current capabilities of mobile hardware/OS.

Use my tablet as an extended screen to hold character sheet(s), combat tracker, chat log, etc. Tablet screens are perfect for holding single purpose views.

Roll20 already has an iPad app. FG really needs to develop an app to stay current. It's really not even an option anymore. Also, as larger iPads (and other tablets) come out, RPG gaming on them will become even more practical and attractive.

They may have an app but it's character sheet. They do have"mobile" support if you pay but that not the greatest either.

I thing fg needs to have a more full featured app. For the gm it would be great if I could edit my campaign on the go and of course have all the other features such as character sheets, maps and other features.

The Roll20 ap is more than a character sheet, its got dice roller and chat features that tie in with the on going game. It also allows the DM to set out a QR code that players, in person, scan with their tablet to instantly join the game.

Theirs has a minimum screen size, which I think is pretty critical for an application like this as it needs to be big enough to be functional.

Really, I think this is a critical feature for FG to not fall into only online play and retain marketshare in the live in-person gaming community.

This just has to be done, rather have my character on my tablet and the map on the TV :)

Without being available on a mobile device, Fantasy Grounds simply isn't going to work for my RP group in the long-run, as nobody will be able to bring it to sessions. As mentioned before the free Roll20 program is a major competitor and has invested in this!

A client version of the Fantasy Ground app would be amazing! If the host/GM has a PC or MAC and runs everything from that and the players would have tablets or Raspberry Pi devices that would allow them to keep track of their character, rolls, skills, items, map, etc... Basically the full client experience but on a cheaper device. Since it would be only the client, it could be only $10 or even free, or the full GM version would come with 2 - 4 client licenses.

I'm not sure which would be easier, to create a server to host everyone's character so their Tablets can connect to the game and get all that info or if they could somehow make the Character Sheet, and Libraries windows as Pop-Ups so we can move them outside of the game and take advantage of multiple screens, that way we can keep the game table clear from cluttering windows. Even more helpful for GMs.
