    Sweet!! One of my wishes was answered and they made it available on android. Now if they could only make it so you can craft on this thing I’ll never be board at my girlfriend’s friends houses ever again.

    Day one blues certainly in play here, as the heads up. Connected for a few moments before kicked. Errors logging in. Multiple et ceteras. DofunnyJumper already posted that the 3rd Party (AFK Interactive (( LOL @ name)) ) is working on ironing out the errors, but in case someone doesn’t see that, thought I would note the heads up.

    Looks interesting though, I will admit.

    @Icecrash99 – Agreed: /sadpanda for no crafting

    Well, so far the app is jank. Lots of server connect failures and unexpected end of token failures. Got in a couple times, selected a character and then was promptly told I failed to connect to the server. Yay.

    The Android Version doesn’t work. Connection Error. I guess they need half a year to fix it.

    Here’s hoping a version gets released for Windows Phone 7… Sounds like it would be pretty handy. I’ll have find a way to ask them to include character lockout timers – no more switching alts just to check those would be even better!

    All the crafting requests really shows how popular crafting is. lol

    I had a level 80 Jeweler, 84/85 Alchemist and a 80 Sage, and a couple others in the 50′s all of which i did mostly on potions, during bonus xp weekends.

    Initially crafting was very complex and interesting but i didn’t have time for it as i was always too busy grouping, raiding, i got into crafting when allot of friends started to leave, but crafting was drastically fisher priced by this time.

    Now it’s all pure grinding (i like grinding so no problem there), but thats it there is nothing more to it, all it takes is time no brain required, i used a laptop and button mashed 3 toons all the way to 80 while watching movies. I would have loved to do much of that on a mobile device.

    Cool idea, I hope there is a windows 7 one eventualy, although I lack any sort of advanced mobile at the mo.

    As for tradeskilling on it, we could do, but they’d have to simplify something to remove the world movement we still need to do…

    I would love to be able to re-price my broker items in order to stay competitive while I can’t be in the game. That would be a cool feature.

    well, given that they’ve never bothered to get the Station Players website ingame chat feature back up and working, why would I expect it to work here?
