Star Trek™ PADD
The Official Star Trek™ PADD (Personal Access Display Device) immerses fans in a rich interactive database of Star Trek™ information and images with an authentic reproduction of the LCARS style interface introduced in the Star Trek: The Next Generation™ series.
The PADD provides access to the official Star Trek™ database from StarTrek.com of aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes. The app includes a true reproduction of LCARS, the computer interface commonly used in Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets during the 24th century, and includes familiar computer sound effects and voice.
Features of the Star Trek™ PADD app include:
-Browse or search through the official database of Star Trek™ television series information, including aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes
-Rich, immersive LCARS graphical interface, introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation™ television series
-Authentic computer sound effects and voice
-Jump to related information through cross-links to other content
-Read the latest news from the Star Trek™ Facebook page and Star Trek™ Twitter feed
-Enjoy two self-running diagnostic modes with an overview schematic of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-D
This is the official Star Trek™ app produced for CBS by ArcTouch.
+ Various bug fixes.
What's New in 2.0:
- Updated databank from Starfleet, including over 170 new entries. Example entries include: Gorgan (possibly the last known inhabitant of the planet Triacus), the EMH Mark II (now with a new personality profile and hair!), and General K'Vagh (the Klingon officer who's medical program ultimately resulted in the "smooth-forehead" Klingons of Kirk's time). Additionally, many existing entries have enhanced data.
- Siri voice recognition has been integrated for searching. (Only available on Siri enabled devices.)
- Messages from Starfleet Command. The main PADD screen now has a button marked MESSAGES that shows communiqués from Starfleet, including updates for each new databank entry. Starfleet Command can send updates via subspace, and they will appear on the MESSAGES screen.
- Subspace "push notifications". When Starfleet has a new update or wants to let you know about enhancements to the PADD databank, these messages will appear on your PADD whether the PADD is running or not. (Be sure to accept the Push Notifications permission warning that comes up upon first start.)
- Full screen photo viewing of databank images. Simply tap on an image, and the image will fill the PADD's screen. Please note, due to the low resolution recording technology of pre-holographic historical data, some images will appear grainy and pixelated.
- Live updating of databank content. New entries and updated entries will appear automatically.
- Enhancements for terrestrial data feeds from Facebook and Twitter.
- Compatible with iOS 6.
- Under 50 megaquads of data for initial download stream, allowing the PADD software to be installed over terrestrial wireless channels. (Using the lingo of 21st century Earth, you can now install over a 3G, 4G, or LTE connection, without requiring WiFi.)
Some users have asked why sounds won't always play. This is because the app pays attention to your "mute" switch and the volume on your device. Also, if you have configured the "mute" switch to lock the rotation of your screen, you may "mute" the device in the following manner: Double-press the home button and swipe to the right until you see the visual "mute" button on the screen.
