Thanks for the update.

Why is there a no-cache on the image downloads? For old cards that seems like something that could have infinite caching. For the new ones, I'd guess a week? How often are you actually updating your design?

The length of time images are cached is device dependent.

Bundling the images with the app is not feasible; compressed the images sit at 3.7GB.

Another feature request when you have time:
Sort Decks by Most/Least Recently Updated

I often start a deck idea and come back to it later. It'd make those old, but recently touched decks easier to find.

The quick start decks are a great idea, and mostly serve as an excellent introductory tool.

But WHY does the Nosferatu royalty breed deck (already a not-so-powerful deck) have an absolute offender of a card, namely Secret Horde?

Shouldn't those two copies be another copy of Warsaw Station, and a Direct Intervention instead?

Or basically any card besides Secret Horde?

Also, is "Horde" in there a typo? I never understood the flavor of it - should it say "Hoard" instead?

That's not a typo, but you bring up a very interesting point. Horde is an anthropological term meaning a small social group akin to a tribe. A hoard is a secret fund.

I see your point because (1) I'm not sure how a "Secret Horde" can be an investment, and (2) the art sure seems to indicate a secret stash like a hoard.

Here's what I believe happened with this card: the designers intended this card to reflect a "Secret Horde," with an effect akin to a Methuselah negotiating resources from his ancient social group. But the artist had "Hoard" in mind, and made the artwork accordingly to show a secret stash of things, or understood that "horde" was meant but wasn't sure how to depict this to match the effect on the card, and therefore designed a secret stash of anthropological looking things like skulls, texts, and ancient chemicals. To further confuse things, the keyword "investment" was added to Camarilla edition.

So today, we have a card with artwork showing a stash of stuff with the word "investment." So it certainly looks like hoard was meant. But I really think "Horde" was meant because a hoard is already secret, so "Secret Hoard" would be redundant ("secret secret fund"). But who knows?
