It's an app published back in 2010. It had everything I needed to roll dice for my D&D and 7thSea campaigns. But then an eager fan of Savage Worlds sent me an email, asking that extra something needed for this system. I had never played it, and it was the occasion to check it. It's true that Savage Worlds requires some special care : both having different die sizes (which a lot of other apps had, but not mine) and exploding/acing dice (which very few apps had, and mine was doing very well).
I checked with a very helpful person of Pinnacle, added my personal touch (having localisation in 4 languages is often welcome), used the occasion to sneak in another option to auto-reroll lows (for the brutal property in DnD 4th Edition) and here we are: a new version, updated for Windows Phone 8 resolutions as well is hitting the various marketplaces as I write these words.
It's not very beautiful (I wasn't trying to recreate the experience of real dice), but trust me, I've never seen any faster way to roll what you need. So, if you love the ritual of picking and rolling your dice, stick to real dice. If you want the dice rolling to be almost transparent, try this app!
Warning: The link is for the US marketplace. If you try to download the app, you might be redirected to a local marketplace where you'll probably have to search again for "Goblin Dice Roller".

Of course, this is just the beginning of a thread. Feel welcome to add your favourite tools on WP/Windows 8.
