I am considering purchasing the two interactive army lists from GW and wondered what people think of them. I saw an update was published a few months ago which was supposed to update eg Eldar for the new Codexes and sort out some bugs. Any views?

I use them. I hear people don't like them, but I do.
I think it is fantastic! No real bugs and it as far as I have tried.

I don't have any experience with the GW version, but Army Builder as mentioned above is a very excellent program, it has a few bugs and such, but overall, very cool - and handy, very handy.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
personally I think it's easier and cheaper just to sit down with the pen and paper, or just type it up.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Yeah it is but triumph is just a boring fart :lol:
so over all i reccommend Army builder if you want one on your pc as its easy to whip a quick list and you can use it for multiple games such as 40k, warhammer, epic, BFG etc
don't get interactive lists!!! I don't dislike GW or anything but unfortunatley IAL is the clunkiest, worst written program ive ever seen. for something which is re4ally just a glorified spreadsheet with inbuilt values, it is horribly processor hungry, very conterintuitive and results in a awkward list/printout.
My friends and i did a race between someone using IAL and someone pen'n'paper flicking through a codex. IAL won the race but only just, and nowehre near enough to justify the cost of a regiment box.
if you are looking for something with all the rules, Wolflair's Army builder (Here) is a much better, easy to use program. it displays statlines / points rather than copy and pasted icons in the selection menu, and because it is updated by fans (who care about it) rather than GW (who doesn't), new codex's appear weeks after they are released, rather than months.
if you don't need the stats, Excel is a handy way of making neat lists that have correct maths. good if your the tourney type, where handwritten lists aren't kosher or if you don't want to spend money. output is the most customisable this way (obviously) but you will need a basic knowledge of using formulas in excel to do this..
my 2.01 cents
i agree about getting armybuilder. its an excellent program with mostly everything thing you need. the only problems i have come across with it are 6th edition armies (fantasy) where the point values and stuff arn't right, and also theres no common magic items. other than those, its a great buy, but then again i got it for free 8Y
