LCARS 47 on Mobile Devices and Tablets

There's been a lot of hype lately about the Windows Store and neat little apps that you can buy and run on your Windows 8 device. People often ask us about our plans regarding app development for the mobile market and we always say the same thing: "LCARS 47 is too hefty for mobile devices."

The other big thing is cost. Apple likes developers to pay a fee to sell apps in their AppStore. We simply will not get involved in the politics of money. Why? Unlike most other LCARS inspired apps, LCARS 47 is freeware. It's never gonna cost a damned penny, and that's a fact. Everything here is funded out of the pockets of those working on it. We don't even accept donations.

You wanna donate? Sure please do, but donate to an awesome charity like Amnesty International or something—they really can make better use out of donations than we ever could.

Anyways, in the meantime, you can run LCARS 47 on Windows 8 (hardware specs depending), as you can see below after Stefan co-opted his friend's laptop.

And if you're more of an Android type, then Daniel Carley has just the solution for you.

See? All of it's still free.
