- Social sharing options include the ability to take a Star Wars “selfie” in various iconic costumes and settings, including Jedi, Princess Leia, Han Solo’s carbon-freeze, and more. You can also share animated GIFs with friends and family of memorable scenes and characters from the Star Wars movies and TV shows, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars Rebels.
- What would any great Star Wars app be without classic sound clips and sound effects from your favorite Star Wars characters, creatures, weapons, vehicles, and scenes. They’re included as well.
- This Day In Star Wars History feature provides you a Star Wars history lesson. Of course, there’s not test for this history class.
- Star Wars five-day weather forecasts, featuring original art and parallax effects of in-universe planets and locales.
This app will help keep you entertained as you look forward to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It has a Star Wars ID feature that allows you to join the Star Wars fan community. You can choose an avatar, create a handle, and build a connected profile. If you happen to be heading to San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), stop by the Lucasfilm booth (#2913-A) and find the poster (seen above) to trigger a special life-sized interaction with a STORMTROOPER or BB-8. You can also grab a limited edition version of the poster to take home with you. If you aren’t attending SDCC, don’t worry. You can get a smaller version of the interaction from digital versions of the poster.
