The video game world is buzzing with Diablo 3 talk. People have their problems with it, especially if they were big Diablo 2 players, but personally, I love it. In the few short weeks it has been available I have spent close to 100 hours grinding my way through the game. There is just something about finding that next great piece of loot or tweaking a little piece of my character’s build that keeps me constantly coming back for more.
Of course, when anything is popular, there are usually a slew of mobile applications that hit the market in an attempt to cash in on the popularity. Diablo 3 is no exception. However, one glance at the app store will show you a ton of poorly rated apps. That being said there are some good ones out there, you just have to dig a little. Or, you can just read the rest of this article and save yourself the trouble.
