Although I am happy too see this here, it is obvious it is the same app as the LCARS wiki that was put out. Just with a slightly different interface and sounds. Even the same bugs exist, for example the "Shift" key does not seem to work. I really wish Cedesoft could have worked something out with CBS to allow them to keep the LCARS app like some other developers have. I was really looking forward to updates.

This is one of the things I would like to see.

The title says it all. When you, have an app that is themed like Star Trek/Star Wars, it just instantaneously turns into awesome! Hopefully, more will come soon. Ta ta!
