This classic Star Trek communicator app ($.99) for iPhone, slipped past us when it was first released into the App Store at the end of May. The spot on graphics and familiar chirping sound triggered when performing the epic cover-flip to access the communicator's controls is pure goodness. This one is guaranteed to have serious old school Trekkies drooling like a Basset Hound.
My favorite part of this app is that with one touch of a button a dialing pad is revealed that allows users to engage their communicator fantasies at will for making calls. Calling buddies for a beer run has never felt so incredibly satisfying.
This app is dangerously authentic and it's actually useful too. Unfortunately the developers had to originally name it Star Radio Communicator in order to keep Paramount from sniffing out their brilliant effort. Get it now before those filthy media hacks set their phasers to kill on this one.
