LCARS Wikipedia for iPad [Application Review]

LCARS Wiki is a great application for viewing Wikipedia pages, if you’re a Star Trek fan. It takes the LCARS interface from the ever popular sci-fi tv show, and makes it a Wikipedia viewer.

When you first open the app (which only works in portrait mode), you are greeted with a welcome message, and instructions telling you to search in the box above and blah-de-dah.

When you tap the search button at the top of the screen, an awesome keyboard appears at the bottom. It goes really well with the theme of the whole application. Probably my favorite part of the app.

So, type something in! For example, if you type in James T. Kirk and hit go, James’ wiki fills itself in below with a fun typing noise. A disadvantage of this application is the lack of ability to view pictures. Oh well. It’s a novelty application, and I don’t think you’ll be doing a lot of searching in this application.

This app is great for trekkies, but if you’ve never seen the show, don’t download this app. It’s for the iPad only, and available in the iTunes App Store for $1.99
