Ready for Dragon Shout [Free] 2.0? The independently developed Skyrim companion map app has recently seen its social update go live. Starting now with an IAP, you can add people to a "party" list and see their individual markers and journal entires. You can also chat with friends and people around the world from the comfort of the app, and view and drop public markers for people to comment on.

A new folder system compliments these additions, and so does a sharp new already annotated map. The latter should really help a lot of Skyrim noobs, we think. Skyrim is big and scary place. It helps to have a hand. Or sixteen.

We took a gander at Dragon Shout after release and were pleasantly surprised at its build quality. If you're looking for a great companion app, this is it.

    I've been using MAppZ - Skyrim Edition (SkyrimMap). It has wiki links for each location to search for more information. I guess chat would be helpful, but I haven't had any questions about the game so far.

    My only friend scoffed at the idea of having to enter a bunch of crap into an iphone app while he was playing Skyrim, and especially since Dragon Shout isn't already populated with the locations. Mappz looks like the superior app, but i'm not paying $3 for it.

      The point of the app is to journal what you do when you're playing.  And the principle behind it is it's community driven data.  There are tens of thousands of markers in Dragon Shout App submitted by the community.

        Hmm...I wasn't aware of that. It was a big empty map when I installed it and looked at it the first time. Placing a marker seemed very imprecise and I just shrugged and deleted it. I'll have to give it another look. I wonder how many people did the same thing as I did.

        Ah, I see...it IS a big empty map unless you pay $1. Meh.

        Also there is an alternate map with a bunch of details / locations (that is free).

        Ah ha, thanks for pointing that out! That is much better. I'll definitely use that one. I bet that gets overlooked a lot too, they should put up a shot of that in the appstore screenshots.
