Ratings and Reviews
Skeptic turned into an enjoyable app
I’d seen this app and others in the past and thought it was laughable to have such. An app for a newsfeed. Then late last night I couldn’t sleep and read the latest reviews on this. I’d been looking for something that had LCARS and decided to give this a try. Boy was I not disappointed. There was more here than I expected. Not only could I add my favorite news feeds. I could also customize the apps font size, the red alert as classic or next gen, the color of the app, and even have the hum of the Enterprise D bridge sounds in the background while I use the app. I can finally fall asleep to bridge sounds at night instead of the Warp Core Alexa plays. Thank you ot the creator of this app. I encourage more app creations like this for other features to be enjoyed on a phone or tablet.
I have owned an iPhone since the very first one was released, which was before the App Store even existed. In all that time I don’t think I’ve ever written an app review. This app is soooo good that I felt compelled to add positive feedback for the creator of this app. First of all it’s a very simple news reading app. Really it is completely unnecessary. But the execution is so well done that I would prefer to read news articles this way. It really is a labor of love to create an LCARS interface that is completely true to the show while also being perfectly functional. It appears that the app is not longer being actively supported but PLEASE keep it going. Build on this. I would be willing to pay for more and I’m sure others would as well. Fantastic job!
I am ON a Starfleet ship!
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.
