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.
We've got two new exclusive tutorial videos for the app (the first video can be found here ). These latest videos detail how to use the auction house and how to communicate with other players currently playing on the Fallen Earth servers. We review the app in-depth in our January 2011 issue, which will be hitting subscribers in just a few weeks.
The app is available on the iPhone (opens in new tab) , Android , and Blackberry . To activate the premium version, users must go through the Fallen Earth website and purchase the the $9.99 app while logged in to their account. Learn more about the app here.
