The Star Trek Communicator App for iPhone and iPod Touch has been around for quite some time, but this week CBS released an update that make the app better than ever. If you’ve ever wanted to carry your own TOS-era communicator around in your pocket, this is your chance. The updated app has a simplified interface, an all-new look, TOS-era lights and buttons, and a series of new themed sound packs.
The sounds packs are available as in-app purchases for 99 cents each, but one extensive pack is included. The add-on packs cover Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, Iconic Phrases, and Special FX.
In addition, a TOS-themed phone screen lets you call anyone in your iPhone’s contacts list directly from the app… we mean your communicator. So use your finger to flip the cover open and communicate away! Just beware of using during a lightning storm.
