EVE Fanfest 2016: EVE Mobile coming to Android and iOS

Remember back in 2013 when Jon Lander announced plans for an EVE Online mobile tie-in with the immortal words, “This time next year, you’ll have EVE Mobile in your hands?” Things didn’t exactly work out as planned back then, and Jon Lander has since left the company, but you’ll be glad to know that CCP didn’t abandon the idea of a mobile tie-in. Today at EVE Fanfest 2016, CCP showed off a beta version of a new EVE Mobile companion app for Android and iOS that could become an essential part of practically every player’s arsenal.

In addition to letting players read and respond to EVEmails from their mobile devices and providing access to in-game corporate calendars, EVE Mobile will deliver all of your in-game notifications to your phone in realtime and allow you to select which types to enable push notifications for. You can also add multiple characters to the app, use it to manage your subscriptions, and see details of your characters such as what ship they are currently flying. Many alliances already use out-of-game tools to organise players, but having an official companion app that ties directly into the EVE servers could make it an essential tool for every pilot.

Disclosure: In accordance with Massively OP’s ethics policy, we must disclose that CCP paid for our writer’s travel to and accommodation at this event. CCP has neither requested nor been granted any control or influence over our coverage of the event. Also, I’m now starting to seriously regret buying a bloody Windows phone.

It would be nice to make skill plans in it that sync up with Eve Online.

need the following:

1) in-app ship spinning
2) live chat with other players in the game
3) live chat with AI posing as exotic dancers in your ship cargo hanger

J’approve. Mobile companion apps are something I really like and wish more games made use of. Rift shutting their Mobile app was quite a nail in the coffin as it cut off a large part of communication and group activity organisation, and it also nuked easy event tracking information. I use the Warframe one daily to sort extractors and manage my foundry construction projects.

Ket_Viliano You, I agree with. Managing trade orders on the go would be awesome.
Still, being able to respond to eve-mails without having to log into mobile browser is at least a step up from what we’ve got now.

*Trading*
I want to adjust my trade orders from my phone. I have yet to check and see if I can use the API to update my trade orders, got other coding projects that really do come first. Yea, this will lead to bot trade wars, but it’s EVE, bot trade wars should be a thing.

BKone  I every studio would do this with every MMO.

Yeah!

IMO, the two biggest tech things if you start a MMO in 2016 versus a decade ago.  Multi-core is vital; single cores are getting faster slowly or not at all.

I wish Cryptic would do this with STO.
