Using Hero Lab for iPad without a Hero Lab license
Hero Lab for iPad can be used without a Hero Lab license, but is limited to Play mode when doing so. In Play mode, you can use Hero Lab like a character sheet during a game, but you may not add advancements (such as adding new levels) or create new characters. This allows you to take a Pathfinder character created in Hero Lab on your Windows or Mac computer, then transfer that character to an iPad for use during game play - even if you don't have a Hero Lab license assigned to your iPad.
Because Hero Lab for iPad has the full Hero Lab engine under the hood, it gives you much more than just a plain record sheet - everything about your character is automatically recalculated as you play, including ability modifiers, stat bonuses, encumbrance levels, and more.
Any character created in Hero Lab on the desktop can be used with Hero Lab for iPad. This allows GMs who own Hero Lab to provide electronic character sheets to any members of their gaming group, regardless of whether the player owns Hero Lab or not. With this flexibility, more players than ever can now realize the benefits of an intuitive, dynamic and fully electronic character sheet!

Just entered a Barbarian Rage? Tap the box and watch your Strength go up, and with it your damage, attack bonus, and skills. Apply the effects of feats, class abilities, and spells with another tap on the screen. Track your character's damage and see immediately how it impacts his abilities (assuming he's still standing...).
Conditions and effects can be instantly applied and removed. Martial classes can quickly swap out their weapons and spellcasters can swap out their spells, as appropriate. Find and create new magic items and have Hero Lab automatically calculate their stats. See the spells in your spellbook and pick between them when you rest for the night. You can even purchase new gear and have the cost automatically deducted from the character's treasury.
With full support for the Pathfinder game system, players can now see, at a glance, all of the character's abilities and pick which one is optimal for a particular encounter. This speeds up game play by eliminating the need to search through multiple books at the table to find the details of a specific facet of a character.
There's much, much more to Hero Lab than can be described here, but if you can do it in Pathfinder, Hero Lab supports it. Download the app and play with the example characters to see just why Hero Lab won a Gold ENnie Award!
