It's about damn time. I never fully understood why players and multiple 3rd parties(besides the official CBS one) had LCAR entertainment apps and this game had nothing. This should have been out and a launch product with the iPad 1.

TBH I'd rather they spend the salaries on people who can actually make Featured Episodes.

Personally, I like the idea that I won't have to BUY and app for my iPad AND my laptop AND my Android phone AND my DS - Now I'll be able to use whatever tool is easiest FOR ME and not have to think about schlepping along the device I chose to buy the app on.

So - it's cheaper, yes. It's cheaper for Crytpic and SHOCK it'll be cheaper for us.

I'm thrilled with the idea - as long as I can access the web, I'll be able to access this gateway. I'm really looking forward to seeing what new stuff will come over the course of the game!
Ditto! Would have preferred an app, but free is free. And anything that requires less development time is a win.

This would be a great help and I would definitely access via my phone.

Ditto for me also.

Those are the features I think need to be developed before silly things like "doff management." Nuking things from orbit is way WAY more important.
LOL. Too funny.
