    Default Soul Planner / Ipod app? I may develop it.

    I haven't seen any details of an Ipod app for Rift yet. I'm interested in developing an Ipod app that essentially would allow players to fool around with creating different builds and allow you to save them and load them up at a later time.

    Pretty basic, but potential to be much more. Perhaps eventually showing exactly what stats you'd end up with, and maybe even show gear and other details of your in-game characters, if Rift has an XML feed or anything I could parse from. (Though this part would come much later!)

    Does anyone know if there is already an ipod app available and, if so, who's developing it?

    I hate to reinvent the wheel or step on someone's toes if there is already someone working on this!

    Of course, I'd give it away for free as I wouldn't feel right making money off of Rift. -Not to mention, likely legal issues if I made money off it! hehe.

    Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions for the app or details on currently in-development apps for Rift, I'd appreciate them!

    Just make sure you dev for iPad in tandem or skip the pod all together.

    Ipod/pad/phone apps would be awsome.

    Sadly, I don't have a droid to test with.

    Anyone who's droid familiar and developer-minded can feel free to contact me if you'd like to work together, though!

    The problem i can see with this project is you would have to obtain permission from Trion to use their artwork (class icons/ ability icons etc) to distribute the app

    Only if I charge for it... Consider all the web apps out there already for this exact thing.

    Even so, I did the right thing and emailed support when I decided to take this on, hoping to get a reply for this project.

    I started to fool around with making a droid version with this, and somewhere between download eclipse and eating I lost interest. I might look into it tomo.

    Actually doesn't matter if you charge for it or not.. you are distributing it.. The analogy id use is you make a copy of a a movie & give it to a friend.. Just cause you didn't sell it to him doesn't mean you didn't break the law.. The only thing is selling it makes it worse of an offense..

    Well, for those that care, I've made progress. Have a basic loading screen and a "new build" screen where you select an archtype.

    :P Not much more than a swipable interface so far... but hey, we gotta start somewhere, right? :P

    Well, hopefully they won't care. I'm not sure how all of the websites get away with using the in-game art and icons without getting shut down, either. So, perhaps it's something included in the fansite kit? I'm downloading that now.

    Either way; still awaiting an update from the Rift team.
