I am ON a Starfleet ship!

Through the Jumpgate Podcast

I’m usually not one for using RSS readers, but when I chanced upon this app while looking for a Star Trek chess app (no luck) I gave it a go. On top of being able to gather Star Trek and pop culture news stories with it, I find myself opening the app just to play with the buttons. Growing up on TNG, DS9, and Voyager I’ve always wanted an LCARS interface for my iPhone and while this is just a single app it is a brilliant recreation of an LCARS panel. Layout, sound, color scheme are all spot on. If this design were adapted to other apps like calendar, calculator, phone, text messaging, etc., I would grab them all, free or not.
Christopher Kriens, I love this app.

My go-to newsreader


My day wouldn't be as enjoyable or complete without this near perfect app. I've been using it for months, and during that time I've checked out competitors without finding anything else that comes close to providing the same ease of use or dependability.

Perfect, but maybe change one thing...


Amazing app. Beautifully made and very useful. My only little complaint is that the text is a little hard to read—maybe it could be made a little bigger or more spaced out. Thanks.
