D&D Beyond is the official digital toolset and game companion for Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition. D&D Beyond ("DDB" for short) offers a compendium with all the game rules, lore, and adventures, as well as digital tools like a character builder, digital character sheet, and an interactive overlay Twitch Extension. It highlights official D&D content, as well as the ability to create and add custom homebrew content. D&D Beyond also publishes regular original video, stream, and article content, including interviews with Dungeons & Dragons staff, content previews and tie-ins, and weekly development updates. The service is free of charge and for profit, deriving its income from digital content purchases, advertising, and subscriptions. D&D Beyond is the only source for online versions of the official Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition books, including rulebooks, adventures, campaigns, and other supplements. It is operated by Curse LLC, formerly a subsidiary to Twitch. On December 12, 2018, Fandom (Wikia) announced that they had acquired Curse and D&D Beyond.
Acquisition by Fandom
The content and character management system is primarily browser-based, fully functional on both mobile and desktop browsers with ongoing updates with input from users throughout the community.
On March 4, 2018 the mobile app of D&D Beyond was first released into beta testing, focused on providing an e-reader for official Dungeons & Dragons content.  This is the only official app containing content for Dungeons & Dragons where the content can be downloaded offline. There is some criticism from the community that the app doesn't contain a character sheet or builder, which is one of the main offerings of D&D Beyond, but the developer has disclosed that functionality is coming in the next phase of beta testing.
