LCARS UI

Gene Roddenberry's contract includes a clause allowing any company able to create functioning technology to use the name. As such, I have created a functioning LCARS UI.

Please contact me with suggestions/complaints instead of putting them in the reviews, as many complaints posted have been fixed already. In some cases even before the complaint was posted. Other times, the functionality is intentional.

I have included many layouts, and intend to do more.
Currently it uses your device's sensors (so it is a working Tricorder in a sense) and detects nearby Wifi hotspots. Has a built in web browser which converts pages into LCARS format. An Alert Condition screen, an Okudagram (from the original movies) generator. You can use your Android device as a remote for a connected (via Wifi/3g) Windows PC. An auto-destruct timer (also shows the stardate) a periodic table of elements, a fully functional graphing calculator and various other animations from the show. Most screens (the non-interactive ones) can be used as a live wallpaper. It also supports Jellybean's DayDream mode, and homescreen widgets

I have added voice recognition to control most of the screens. But due to the nature of Android's VR API, it requires a second Android device to act as the microphone to work in real time like the video.

Note for those of you saying it's not a homescreen: The definition of the term UI just means something the user interacts with. It does not mean "Homescreen for android" (Seriously, look it up). I don't know how you came to the conclusion that it did mean that when I have screenshots, video, and an in-depth description. None of which mention the word homescreen. It is a UI, not a homescreen. I made another app that is just a homescreen, called the LCARS Launcher

Recent changes:
SYS\Omega will no longer appear while inside other screens once you've unlocked it
GNDN\Romulan Clock runs at a higher framerate
Using V.REC to make an alarm will refresh the notification properly
Image toasts have been added to the V.REC conversations
A queuing system was added to the download API
More V.REC commands were added

Awesome I love this app but I would love it more if you could make it function more like SIRI or The Assistant. Using the main computers voice of course. I would love waking my phone up saying, "Computer, time" or "computer, play Buy The World" an have it respond in kind.

This is the most incredible app I've ever seen. Period. Its the best two dollars I've spent in a long time- maybe ever. If you're a star Trek fan you must get this. You won't be disappointed.
