Just about right

Source: 'Star Trek - The Next Generation: Technical Manual' by Rick Sternbach and Michael Okuda. Published by Boxtree.

The Star Trek tricorder have two buttons in the top right area, which are always marked as "I" and "E" which stands for Internal and External. Pressing I allows the tricorder to scan by itself while pressing E allows the tricorder to use the starship's scanners. Why do this app have "X" and "E" button???? Comparing to the app 'Tricorder TR-580' by Matthias Schorer, which got it right, the iScanner Tricorder app got it wrong.

However the display on iScannerr Tricorder is better than Tricorder TR-580 becuase iScanner's display is faster and gives Star Trek like information, if somewhat limited to the same old inforrmation again and again and the use of the 'EMEG' button on iScanner is correct. Press it and it show a very fast (fake) uploading, althought never seen on Star Trek, is very much what it would be like if seen on the show. The EMEG button is better than I expected.

Library buttons again wrong, should be "I" and "E" not the "J" and "K" buttons on the app.

Needs a little more work to do but otherwise useful for downloading to your iPhone or iPod Touch and use during fancy dress parties as long as other people are not serious Star Trek fans and would not notice your app is bit wrong.

If the developer wish to ask me for more feedback and ideas, I would be happy to help out.

I love this app, remember when some of us were kids when the TNG came out, none of this was available to us. better than it's other predecessors out there, no hidden charges, plus more realistic sounds. I'd love to see this app develop and have more options, it has the buttons and lights for it, hopefully this is just the first version, hoping for updates. Plus can someone make better iPad lcars apps with red alert, everything included, if I was a computer programmer I've got some brill ideas, just need to find someone I can pitch my ideas to.
