Just wanted to give a quick heads up that our iPhone app called HoN Builds has just been made available in the iTunes app store for the great price of FREE.
Basically, HoN Builds is a skill and item build manager that lets you either quickly look up the preloaded builds (most based on the Big Hero Guide), or create your own. You can also email a text/html version of the builds to friends/teammates.
Here are a couple screen shots and a handy direct download link HoN Builds.
We want to make this a great app and are welcome to any questions, suggestions and/or comments. Good luck in your games, and thanks for your time.

Ooh! Me likey. I am sure there will be people that may have alternate builds and what not but for new guys like me, it will help me especially when playing heroes for the first time.

"The doomwhale was a large aquatic animal and the most dangerous predator of Safehold.
These pure carnivores were known to run to as much as one hundred feet in length. Each doomwhale required a huge range, and encounters with them were rare, as they seldom bothered with a prey as small as humans. Doomwhales would eat almost anything, including even the largest krakens. They were known, on extremely rare occasions, to attack merchant ships and even war galleys."
Very nice.. people without an iPhone will have to buy one now ^^'
Given the success of HoN Build for the iPhone, we will begin porting to Android and WP7.
There's one available on the Android Market, but it costs money.
Any chance you could develop yours for android phones?
That would all have to go on your phone, basically everything, for you to be able to do that.
To anyone trying to run HoN Builds on iOS 3.1 and older. There is a known issue that will crash the app on launch. We apologize for this and have submitted an update to Apple to address this bug.
Yeah many of the Big Hero Guild builds are show their age. Should have a push of updated alternative builds here soon.
Over the weekend we pushed an update to the hero data and Bombardier, The Gladiator, and Doctor Repulsor have had their 'place holder' builds replaced with actual builds. For those of you running iOS 4 you may need to completely exit i.e. kill the app to receive this update.
Also we also have begun work on the iPad UI for the app. Depending on the approval time, look for this within in the next 2-3 weeks.
FYI, the update with Moraxus was just posted to the server. Should be seeing him show up in the hero list over the next 24 hours.
The update containing Myrmidon was just posted and you should see him appearing in the heroes list over the next day or so.
Thanks to everyone who has downloaded the app. An update containing the iPad version of the app will be available soon.
Dampeer update is a go. Will refine item build in a week or so. Happy holidays everyone.
