The Official Star Trek™ PADD (Personal Access Display Device) immerses fans in a rich interactive database of Star Trek™ information and images with an authentic reproduction of the LCARS style interface introduced in the Star Trek: The Next Generation™ series.
The PADD provides access to the official Star Trek™ database from StarTrek.com of aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes. The app includes a true reproduction of LCARS, the computer interface commonly used in Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets during the 24th century, and includes familiar computer sound effects and voice.
Features of the Star Trek™ PADD app include:
-Browse or search through the official database of Star Trek™ television series information, including aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes
-Rich, immersive LCARS graphical interface, introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation™ television series
-Authentic computer sound effects and voice
-Jump to related information through cross-links to other content
-Read the latest news from the Star Trek™ Facebook page and Star Trek™ Twitter feed
-Enjoy two self-running diagnostic modes with an overview schematic of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-D
-Voice recognition for searching (Only available on applicable devices)
-Live updates of databank content -- new entries and updated entries appear automatically
Some users have asked why sounds won't always play. This is because the app pays attention to your "mute" switch and the volume on your device. Also, if you have configured the "mute" switch to lock the rotation of your screen, you may "mute" the device in the following manner: Double-press the home button and swipe to the right until you see the visual "mute" button on the screen.
This is the official Star Trek™ app produced for CBS by ArcTouch.
What's New in Version 2.4.909
Optimizations and performance improvements for devices running iOS 8. Additional fixes for several related bugs.
I love this app! I have been looking for Star Trek apps like this. My only complaints are for cast bios you should have them in and out of costume, and much of the databases are missing pictures.
Also, how about a section covering the movies? These are easy fixes!
One more section I would like to see is an alliance section covering UFP, Starfleet, Klingon High Council, and other ruling bodies. Also a section covering ranks and uniforms of each race. I will be waiting for an update!!!!!
Great piece of work!
Just had this for a little while and already more than satisfied. A LOT of work went into this app. Huge amount of info and realistic sounds (and computer voice) make me feel I really have a PADD in my hand. I have a mini.
Hard to believe there are so few takers...
Star Date log NEEDED It could be great !
Hey a great update would be a way to add your own star date log entry. Like a mission statement or a personnel log. This is what every Star Trek character does so why can not FANS. Please give it thought. Rest in peace Leonard Nimoy.
