if your off-topic, thanks!
I'm currently developing a STO app that will work with iPhone (3GS and 4 - iOS 4.0+, naturally) and iPad.
So far, this app features:
-Interactive galaxy map
-Interactive starship tier chart
-List of accolades
-List of Starbases (and what level goods are sold there)
-List of Abilities granted with each level
-(just added) list of Diplomatic Corps awards
-List of User and Bridge Officer abilities (with descriptions)
-Links to the STO, Cryptic Store and the official STO website
Things to come:
-Links to the Captain's Database (including your characters)
-DevTracker (via Twitter)
-User-Friendly forum access
-In-game mail system
NOW before you get too excited, this is still in the development stage. There's A LOT of information to handle, and the scripting is incredibly complex (if you do any other application development in C++, Flashor Java, iOS is SO much worse). So it's not nearly ready for release yet.
There's also a whole lot of legal stuff to take care of with Cryptic and @Suricata (as the interactive map and the starship tier chart are on his artwork), but I haven't presented either of them with anything yet, as I would like to have a working product before I make a presentation.
But hopefully, before the year is out, I'll have this app on the market.
