CBS releases Star Trek Padd for iPad

MUMBAI: CBS Interactive, a division of CBS, has announced the launch of the official Star Trek Padd app, based on the
television franchise ‘Star Trek‘.

The Padd (Personal Access Display Device) app provides fans with a mobile ‘Trekker‘ experience.

The app features an authentic reproduction of the LCARS interface-the fictional computer operating system depicted in the television series—as well as a rich, interactive database of the television series information, including images and an episode guide.

The Star Trek Padd app is now available for $4.99 in the App Store.
Developed in conjunction with CBS Mobile by app development studio ArcTouch, the Padd app transports fans back through the 40-year history of the television franchise, including its characters, planets and technology spanning from ‘Star Trek: The Original Series‘ all the way to ‘Star Trek: Enterprise‘.

The app also includes a recognisable computer voice as well as familiar Star Trek-related sounds.

CBS Mobile senior VP, GM Rob Gelick said, "The Star Trek Padd app lets die-hard fans and casual enthusiasts use the authentic LCARS interface to access the extensive official Star Trek database, and easily connect with other Trekkers. We expect that the app will also introduce the show to a new generation of fans, leveraging 21st century technology to provide a glimpse into the 24th century".

The app includes the following features:

A LCARS graphical interface that provides an authentic and immersive experience, complete with STAR TREK-related sound effects and prompts from a recognizable computer voice.
An official database of Star Trek information, including aliens, ships, places, and technologies as depicted in the Star Trek television series, plus a detailed episode guide.
The official Star Trek Facebook fan page and Twitter feed integrated into the app to let fans catch up on the latest news and connect with other Trekkers.
Michael Okuda, who was in charge of computer interface design for the Starships Enterprise and co-authored the Star Trek Encyclopedia along with wife Denise, said, "Back when the Padd first appeared on ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation‘, none of us imagined that today we‘d be able to hold the real thing in our hands. But the Star Trek Padd app, running on your iPad, is an actual miniature, handheld, touch-sensitive, 24th-century-style computer screen "
