If you’re still bummed because the once-promised official Guild Wars 2 companion app never materialized, how about a consolation prize in the form of an unofficial one?
Released for Android this week, GW2 Sidekick allows a player to see all of his characters, inventories, bank bags, wallet, and equipped gear at a glance. It also calculates deaths and hours played for you just in case your morale is too high. Creator Bobbjoemoma.5784 plans future features including PvP league tracking, an auction hall watch list, market stats, an item search, and news feed. It’s not the first such app for the game, but it’ll be pretty darn shiny once it’s fully fleshed out.
No need to fret over security: You’ll just need to create an API key on ArenaNet’s website that grants the proper permissions to the app without compromising the account itself. The main drawback is in-app ads; the developer requests $1.60 US to remove them. Get that market watch list going and I’m in!
