Star Trek™ PADD App Details

The Official Star Trek™ PADD (Personal Access Display Device) immerses fans in a rich interactive database of Star Trek™ information and images with an authentic reproduction of the LCARS style interface introduced in the Star Trek: The Next Generation™ series. The PADD provides access to the official Star Trek™ database from StarTrek.com of aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes. The app includes a true reproduction of LCARS, the computer interface commonly used in Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets during the 24th century, and includes familiar computer sound effects and voice. Features of the Star Trek™ PADD app include: -Browse or search through the official database of Star Trek™ television series information, including aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episodes -Rich, immersive LCARS graphical interface, introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation™ television series -Authentic computer sound effects and voice -Jump to related information through cross-links to other content -Read the latest news from the Star Trek™ Facebook page and Star Trek™ Twitter feed -Enjoy two self-running diagnostic modes with an overview schematic of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-D -Voice recognition for searching (Only available on applicable devices) -Live updates of databank content -- new entries and updated entries appear automatically Some users have asked why sounds won't always play. This is because the app pays attention to your "mute" switch and the volume on your device. Also, if you have configured the "mute" switch to lock the rotation of your screen, you may "mute" the device in the following manner: Double-press the home button and swipe to the right until you see the visual "mute" button on the screen. This is the official Star Trek™ app produced for CBS by ArcTouch.

  • Great idea but incomplete

    By Majorsdaddy
    I love the premise of this app, and I’m not sorry I bought it, but it needs to be updated. Too many images of simple things like tricorders and phasers are missing. Otherwise, love it.
  • I have an idea...

    Since you've downgraded the CNET app by dumping Apple Byte and refocused your attention to cars, why don't you reassign some developers to the PADD, bring it up-to-date and make it a five-star app again?
  • CBS What are you doing?

    Opportunity being missed. A year u til season two of Discovery and fans are clamoring fir content. Update this app AND add ST:D content and allow rotate.
  • OUTDATED BY OVER A YEAR WITH MANY BLANK IMAGES

    This app has not been updated in over a year so there is NO SUPPORT AT ALL. It also has SO MUCH BLANK IMAGES MISSING that was supposed to be COMING INSTALLMENTS THAT NEVER EVER CAME. So your CHEATED. It would be good if it was updated and supported and ALL BLANK IMAGES WERE FILLED and MOVIE ELEMENTS WERE ADDED. IN ADDITION, to meet today’s standards there should be greater animation elements added meeting the higher end look of the Star Trek Universe.
  • Fun, but empty...

    Cool idea, didn’t mind paying for it, (shouldn’t have had to pay for iPad AND iPhone apps that are identical) but the biggest complaint is the lack of info available. Way too many “Image Not Available” results that should have been updated along the way. My impression is that this app was spitballed in a meeting, but no thought was ever given to keeping it relevant. There is a ton of useful information about this franchise, but so far, you can’t get it from this app. Another disappointment is that I’d like to be able to click on a starship, then go exploring from the main bridge to engineering, or the shuttle bay, or the cargo bays or transporter rooms. “Image Not Available” is the result if anything. And, as others have pointed out, why not link into other sources, like the LCARS is capable of. HELLO...IS ANYBODY OUT THERE??? Please listen...
  • No Discovery Info Even After 11/2017 update!

    Ummmm....guys at CBS interactive? There’s a new Star Trek show. Maybe you’ve heard of it? I searched for characters from the new show and...nothing. I’m...just....uh...no words...
  • Stop don’t buy this

    This doesn’t work on iOS 11 what a rip off!!!
  • Needs Much More

    This has so much potential, but currently feels like a quick scheme to milk loyal fans. While I appreciate all the Trek info being in one place, it would have made much more sense to have it interface with Wikipedia...then it would be more like the actual LCARS from the show. Also, a free play, demo mode with authentic sounds for button presses and screen animations would be great.

    Has this app been updated at all? It's a great app but it really needs to be updated.

    I love the idea of this app, but it needs to be more user friendly. Larger buttons on the iPhone version (and pretty cheap that you make people pay for iPhone and iPad versions separately!) and update to have all of Into Darkness info. (John Harrison and Admiral Marcus, for example aren't there). And update it to include Star Trek Beyond. People paid for this, but Memory Alpha had better content. Please get with it.
