Star Wars App Offers Round-The-Clock Entertainment
As we explained yesterday, it’s a very good time to be a Star Wars fan. In addition to the many movies and books on the way (and the near daily news updates on Space.ca), you now have access to Star Wars updates all day every day courtesy of the first official Star Wars app. Featuring constant countdowns to The Force Awakens and Episode VIII, this app also includes a news feed that brings together all the stories from Star Wars’ Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and YouTube accounts. In other words, getting your daily dose of Star Wars news just got even easier.
This synthesis of news updates is probably the app’s most practical feature, but it also has the kind of entertaining (if not altogether essential) gimmicks you’ve come to expect from apps. For example, you can impress your friends with customized selfies that place you against Star Wars backdrops, in Star Wars wardrobe, alongside your favourite Star Wars characters.
You can also leave behind the days spent searching for high quality Star Wars gifs or sound effects, as impressive collections of both are included with this app. If the mood strikes to kill a few minutes wielding a lightsaber, simulate the experience with The Force Trainer game. And why worry about the local weather when you can find out which part of the Star Wars universe has similar conditions?
