Downloaded over here too. Pretty cool! I like scrolling through the ship database.

Just need to say to all the iPad naysayers, let's see you have this much fun on a laptop!

Btw, if you let your Padd app run idle for a bit, (not sure how long) it activates a "screen saver" mode.  How cool!

It's pretty cool.  They just need to tie it in with Memory-Alpha's website and it would be really incredible as a Trek database.  There's a fair amount of content right now.  Maybe they will add updates to it when they see how well it sells to us geeks!  :)

According to the app's first page, its pulling content from official sources including Memory Alpha.

That app is pretty cool.  I now have a reason to get an iPad.

Well if you guys keep singing it's praises I'm going to have to give this app a try.  From the description it doesn't really sound like something I would use very often though.  I wish Apple would allow more customization of the UI.

Apple?  Customize??  Joby - you are a funny guy.  :)

I'm surprised they even let them go as far as customizing the app without using standard controls :)

The Padd app is now the #3 top paid app in the App Store.  I'd say this is a runaway success!

Apple should really make a special iPad/Trek Padd version of the hardware/OS itself.  I'd pay extra for a regular, permanent Trek style, LCARS interface like Joby wants.

The CBS ad for this ad looked to be full of Cheese.  But then I found a video that shows what it is better.

Update available!

You can now turn off some of the sounds like the background ship hum. I'm glad about this, feels a little more realistic now.
