Fans of the classic communicator from the original series of Star Trek who own an iPhone will be pleased with a new offering from the iTunes store.
A new app, released last week, replicates “the personal communication device used by Starfleet personnel.”
The app features the actual voices of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan and Nichelle Nichols as their original series characters. In addition, there are other sound effects and lights and motion.
- Official sound and voice effects from the original series
- A paging function that allows for interactive role playing
- A full dialer page that allows access to your personal contacts, and you can communicate with your friends through your Star Trek Communicator
- Animated antenna grid that flips up with the flick of your wrist or swipe of your finger
- Authentic visual features and textures of the actual Starfleet communicator
The Star Trek Communicator app sells for $1.99 and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, requiring iOS 3.1 or later.
