Developer Brings StarCraft II Controller to iPhone

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

Playing StarCraft II? There's an app for that.

There are thousands of developers making applications for the App Store, and a lot of the stuff they produce is complete rubbish. Only a small fraction of the apps available are news worthy, and an even smaller portion is news worthy before they're even available. However, one unusual app has made headlines before it's even finished.

Developer Daniel Hellerman is currently developing an application that will allow iPhone and iPad owners to control StarCraft II with their smartphone or tablet. Dubbed the StarCraft II Gameboard, the application lets you remotely control your game and includes mini-map control, detailed unit statistics, and access to the game's important hotkeys and macros.

The application only works when synced to a program on your game's PC, and TUAW reports that this program is Windows only so Mac users won't be able to make use of it unless they're running Windows via Boot Camp. Hellerman says the app is due out in September, but there's a chance Blizzard will put a stop to it before then.

    What a complete waste of time. If you have a PC or Laptop capable of playing SCII, im guessing they'd have a keyboard and mouse. This is another example of a developer creating a worthless application to make money from idiots gullable enough to buy the crap through the appstore :(

    Because its ironic that the AppStore will have a app that can be used with a windows program. Its freakin hilarious.
