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.

I'm an iOS developer and I could help you port to iOS if you are interested.

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.

I am very excited about this project. I hope to see it on the market very soon. Is there a preliminary date set for alpha testing to start?

Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

We're not planning iOS development due to reasons we've published before. Thanks for the offer though.

Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

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

Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

Not currently, but we are aiming for April 2014.

Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

Yup. There's an update posted recently. I'm actually working on this now, with Shaun. We post screenshots to Facebook pretty much every day.

Where can I find the reasons you published re. IOS? I didn't see a faq page. Thanks.

Hello Eleanor and Shaun,

Thank you for the hard work you and your staff have put in to it.

As a Mobile User I cannot help but ask if there are any UPDATES?


Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

Yes, don't worry. We're looking at an early 2015 release.

Unknown said...

Soooo, was there an early 2015 release?

Hardwyre said...

There was a 2005 alpha test, from what I can gather.... :-/

Eleanor Catherine Davenport said...

The alpha testing for this version was concluded in 2013. We decided to can development as the then-current-gen mobile hardware wasn't up to the job. That's no longer the case, and we've since restarted development. We're expecting a release some time in 2016 Q3.

Here's a slightly more up to dat article.
