Missed the boat
I like the app. The graphics could be better and sharper. I'd pay more for a tilt feature that would allow for a slightly 3D view when you tilt the phone.
What kills me, (unless this would be restricted for some reason) is you can't use the Communicator interface as a phone….HELLO! "kirk to enterprise" ring a bell? If Siri can do it why oh why can't you make voice based calls through the Communicator interface? Even if you had to program the numbers in. I'd pay extra for that.
If we were really thinking we'd have an option for the communicator interface to materialize when the phone rings and allow a flip open to answer, that's the dream.
Nice gimmick app but if it were a functional communicator it would be awesome.
Works even better now after update!
I wish there were a way to add the downloaded sounds to my system, make them the default sounds, but apple restricts apps from doing that, so you have to replace the sounds manually after converting them to CAF format. That's easy enough to do.
After the update, the phone part of it works a lot better. I bought all of the sound packs!
It would be great if an app could be made that totally re-built the iOS to look like a ST Communicator, sounds and all.
Someone is DELETING my reviews (for revealing secret info no doubt, but you can use DiskAid on ANY iPhone)
Update is cool, except... The grid graphic is different. Looks a bit more cartoony and misshapen. Original looked better. They improved the moire pattern to some extent, but it STILL isn't the classic 'spider' moire. And what's with that HUGE hole in the center?!? They couldn't clean that up any better??? And hey... What's with throwing a sound effect in there from The Next Generation Trek?!? It doesn't belong! Sure I'm picky! This is supposed to be a classic Trek app. I know you can switch it off, but it shouldn't be there AT ALL. Last thing... The 2 buttons that activate the sounds AREN'T SUPPOSED TO LIGHT UP!!! They're KNOBS, not lights!!!
Really does seem like the creators of this app weren't totally original Trek geeks. Take notes from us Trek geeks!
