TR-600 Tricorder Mk XI • LCARS 47 for Android

Great news for Android lovers. The new TR-600 from LCARS 47 is making rapid headway despite a few stubles due to the use of resource intensive animation. Old habits die hard, I guess. We've since rectified the problems by better optimizing animations and so far, everything looks awesome.

The TR-600 takes its inspiration from the Tricorder seen in Star Trek: Nemesis, and is the second of the two Expeditus (LCARS 47 for Android) apps. It's designed to be perfect for phones and small tablets. We've even had input suggesting that some users might even make a Tricorder styled case for their phones. Those that do, pics or it didn't happen...

We're still in the most early of stages and if you're up for getting in on the closed alpha testing, you should email Shaun to get in on our super secret Google + group.

EDIT: September 27 2013
We are no longer accepting submissions for alpha testing.

  3. Hope there will be options other than Google Play- my Kindle Fire can't access the Play market unless I root it, and I won't root it til the warranty is up. Either an Amazon App Store option or an .APK I can download from another website (like this site) would work.

    Or I can just wait a bit, root the device, and turn it into a proper Android. But I'm sure there's other Kindle owners who would appreciate some options.

    1. We are exploring options for Kindle. It's not a priority at the minute though.
