The official Star Wars app brings the light side and dark side to your mobile device
If you’re looking for an easy way to stay up to date with all things Star Wars, you’re in for a nice surprise. Disney has just released an official Star Wars app to the Google Play Store that acts as your connection to a galaxy far, far away.
Once you jump in to the app, you can choose between Droid, Light Side and Dark Side themes that will change up the app’s interface. When you get to the application’s main screen, you’ll be presented with a slew of Star Wars related content including official videos, news, GIFs and much more. You can also take advantage of a few unique features like the ability to take a selfie with various costumes and backdrops, and even unlock 3D characters from The Force Awakens by using the special Augmented Reality camera feature. Seriously, there’s a lot of content available in this app, and you should definitely check it out if you’re a fan of the series.
With that said, the app doesn’t perform all that well, even on some of the more capable devices out there. The interface is quite slow and can be a little confusing to navigate around at times. I’ve also run into some trouble with the camera when trying out the Star Wars selfie and Augmented Reality features on my Nexus 6. There are quite a few release day bugs, but we’re sure die hard fans won’t mind.
The app is now available for free in the Google Play Store. Be sure to check it out by following the link below.
