With a few quick taps of the finger, an employee trapped in a video game-less office just crafted a rifle, placed a bid on an auction for machetes, and sent an message to his entire clan without ever having to launch the MMO and alert the company's IT police. Such are the possibilities that mobile applications like the Fallen Earth Companion App give to gamers who need a quick fix from their favorite MMO while at work.

Contest Update: We're giving lifetime access to the premium features of Fallen Earth's app to ten lucky readers! Details at the bottom of the post.
