Here comes an Android app that you could have imagined to get a hold of only in your dreams ever since you first saw it used by the Starfleet crew – the Official Star Trek Communicator.
The Star Trek Communicator comes in the form of an app that functions exactly how it does as featured in the Star Trek Television series. The Starfleet personnel used personal communication systems that were the first of its kind and got the world excited about the gadgets of the future.
The very same model has been replicated and created into an app to make you feel like one of the Starfleet personnel themselves. Additionally the communicator app features out actual voices of your favorite characters such as:
- Captain Kirk
- Dr. McCoy
- Lieutenant Uhura
You also have sound effects as well as lights and motions that have the actual prop from the series where it all started.
The best part about the app is that it not only gives you the feel of the communicator but is completely functional as well. In that sense it gives you access to your phonebook and messages and you can make calls through it too.
The app includes original voice and sound effects from the original series and a paging system for active role playing.
Use your own Star Trek communicator to communicate with your friends using it.
It also has an animated antenna grid that flips up with the flick of your wrist or swipe of your finger.
