I’m having a hard time recalling any other apps in the Windows Phone Store that are aimed squarely at all the Trekkies out there. But you do have one now, Star Trek App for Windows Phone 8 is a promotional app for the upcoming film: Star Trek: Into Darkness. Let’s check it out.
The Star Trek App is available on iOS and Android, but we typically don’t get many promotional apps like this on Windows Phone. Take it as a good sign that things are changing for the little OS that could. So what do you get with this Star Trek App? Some nifty features to help get you pumped for the film that comes out in about two weeks.
- Stay up-to-date on the latest Star Trek Into Darkness news
- Exclusive articles found only in the app
- Sweepstakes to win prizes like an official uniform
- Exclusive offers from partners
- Trivia and polls
- And more
One thing they don’t mention in the app description is that you’ll have the ability to purchase tickets through Fandango to a pre-screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness on May 15. Two days before it’s supposed to hit theaters on the 17th.
Live long and prosper. Anyone stoked for the movie?
