If I had one of those new fangled phoney things I would TOtally have that app.

My Motorola flip phone is 13 years old but I CAN actually flip it open now that the springs are broken in.

I make the sounds manually which usually results in a near by stranger asking me if I lost my handler.


Way cool, Ray.

Oh Hell Yes!  That is so cool.  Like Blanch, I have an old ass phone.  Still, I have the Darth Vader entrance music as a ring tone so I feel sure I have more cool points than Mrs NoE....:0)


Like the vid.

Ray, how many Trek apps did I spy on that droid?   LOL.

You only spotted 2, Chig...but there are 3, lol. The TOS Communicator I showed. Then thre was the Next Gen looking Communicator badge icon.  It can be associated with any app. Naturally, I have it hooked to bring up voice commands.

Finally, I just added a Tricorder which WAS on the Market then got pulled by legal weasels. It actually works: Here's a vid I found...

I had to find a Torent api file and load it off my memory card, but I have it now. Muhahahahah

Blanch, I rocked a Motorola Flip Phone Communicator style once. I used a full screen photo of the flip-up antenna as wallpaper on the inside flip cover so when you flipped it open, it looked lie it had that extended gold antenna like on TOS =)

I hear that every time I get a text message, and everyone who hears it immediately ID's it and smiles.

I didn't know there was an actual app for it, though.  Just have the Star Trek sound effects loaded so that they're an option for ringtones.

Hello Ray! GREAT seeing and hearing you at the Ark. Very cool apps. My phone is simple but maybe someday I can join the "crew".  Lotta Trekkies here, I'm sure they will love this tutorial.

I owe ya a callback. Ive not forgotten, just had my time kidnapped by other forces for a bit...not THE force, just forces.
