Best Windows 8 Apps

Well worth the money. Nice app that turns your tablet into a prop from star trek.

Absolutely love this app. Very well designed and accurate to the series. When used on a small tablet it is really fun. My only complaint and the reason I didn't give my stars is the e-reader application. The app didn't retain my place on a book I was reading. If this can be fixed I'll give it a full 5 star.

Creators might look into making programmable hot keys to give ability to launch other programs, also weather can be improved, and the addition of perhaps optional Planetarium and a separate Satellite tracking app might be good to add as well. all said, this could be the best of its type ive seen so far. One hopes the creators read these and are keeping up with updates and get them out to us. 3 stars for now and if I see improvements, then will give more. keep up the good works guys!

First time I've felt compelled to write a review for a Metro/Modern/Whatever app, but this thing is really fantastic! Especially if like me you have a Surface then this is an absolutely must-buy... the sights and sounds are pretty authentic (as authentic as an app based on a work of fiction can be anyway) but the best part is there's some LEGITIMATELY useful functionality here! I mean, for the longest time my music player was AIMP, which I had on my Surface screen while I did my main work on an external monitor. Now, I leave LCARS full-screen on the Surface screen and use it's music player... and on top of that I can quickly access weather, a calculator, a notepad, and more. It's not just a toy is what I'm really saying (though it's got plenty of eye candy and totally fun stuff too!). It's actually increased my productivity.
So yeah, if you're a Star Trek fan, and ESPECIALLY if you have a Surface, buy this thing now, you won't regret it for a second!

Very well done app. Scratches my nerdy itches!

Fun to use and actually useful! Best app purchase so far on my new PC. Keep up the good work.

This app is absolutely incredible. It has an incredible range of features for the price and is certainly more than a novelty that you open a few times for kicks and then never again.
The game is a fun throwback. It's fantastic that the developer continues to add to this app instead of creating new ones that I'd have to buy or forcing in-app purchases.
Glitches are always fixed in a timely manner and the developer always responds promptly to email is with a genuine interest in users and adding the functionality I'd like to see. I'd give this app 6 stars if I could!!

I have seen some Star Trek but I am not a die hard fan. I came upon this app by accident and gave it a try. I LOVE this program! I wish it actually did more. Everything about it works perfectly and is the easiest touch multipurpose interface I have ever seen / used. I now have it as a default for all my video play, its my on screen clock and weather as well. This is a great app. Make it completely take over as a shell for all windows and charge good money for it. We'll buy it. It would be worth it. Cons. Silly load star trek sound effects. Need user adjustable color.

Skeptical at first, but this is a fantastic APP and improving. Ability to do text as well as video Logs and getting better!!

An absolute must for Star Trek fans. It has Voyager and Next Gen settings, independently customizable sounds and visuals. I never spend money on apps, but this was a must as soon as I saw it. It has so many random things on it, it's almost overwhelming. Calculators, weather reports, and even captain's logs. Also, you can attack Klingons and play around with a warp core, shields, and phasers. Definitely worth it.

Honestly, if I didn't need my tablet for work, I'd mount it on the wall just for the fun of it.

Awesome program. Has nice features, but the file manager should be able to read and execute shortcuts. It would make my life a little easier. ;)

I am a Star Trek fan so naturally I really like this app. They are still working to improve it so it isn't static and since I have a touch screen it is like flying the Enterprise-D or Voyager from my Desktop.

I purchased this app thinking that it would be a nice little thing to play with, being the Start Trek fan that I am. However, after getting into it, I realized that this thing was way more than just a cute little app. The developer has obviously put into it hundreds if not thousands of hours in making not only a beautiful simulation of the Star Trek LCARS system with real working feedback, but also included in it functional apps such as calendar, music player, document readers, voice and video recorder, weather app, clock and a whole lot more. I can't recommend this app enough. Hopefully enough people buy it to make it worth the developer's while, cause it's one heck of an app. Thanks Dev for this beautiful creation.

This is an awesome app very fun ,works great, only small issue is the warning klaxon is reversed between vey and gen, but still very cool

This is the perfect app for any Trekker wanting to make the ultimate Star Trek paraphernalia out of their Windows tablet. It's also amazingly functional, too, including a number of handy tools!
If only I was going to Dragon*Con this year, I'd cosplay a TNG-era Star Fleet officer and go around with this on my tablet. :D

This is a great APP, but for $3.00 I was hoping for a theme or at least an app launcher. The app launcher is the thing I miss most. If I could start appps with this interface, I would never drop down to Modern UI. Also a theme to skin the apps would be nice. Still and all, I don't regret spending the money as long as it buys me at least a few updates
7 June 2014
I would like it to be integrated
as a replacement foe the Windows Start Menu

Every Star Trek fan will want this LCARS Interface. The best I seen.

This app is freaking amazing!! if I had this as a kid back when TNG was on - I would have been beaten up everyday at school cause I would totally of pretended I was in Starfleet all the way through graduation - and it would have been worth it
27 March 2014
100% AWESOME APP!
25 March 2014
Save your money. It's not a "theme". I suppose it's well done for what it is.
19 March 2014
This app works perfectly in Windows 8/8.1! All it needs is the older LCARs, from The Motion Picture/ST2.
1 March 2014
I really want to skin Windows 8 with the LCARS theme, but this app is fun and I will use it. Think of it as an LCARS desktop within Windows 8, with a (small) subset of windows 8 functionality. The video and audio logs are awesome!

Very stable UI that can be used in everyday life. Hope to see new updates bring other useful applications.
