Ok, I’m a geek.  I know I’m a geek.  And guess what?  If you are reading this review, you’re a geek too!

This is a very  cool Star Trek iLCARS app.  It has a sub scanner for life forms in the area. It has an adjustable range so you can increase and decrease the scan area.  It has a bio scanner, which will give you a close up reading of any life form, including IQ, Age, DNA, and a few other goodies.  And, my favorite, it has a geo scanner which is affected by the movement of your iPhone.

The sounds are well placed, and the voice is exactly what you would expect from this type of "device".

Interface?  Looks like any Star Trek handheld.  The only thing missing is the Star Trek logo (I’m guessing that Apple would have rejected this app if it had one),

If you are a Star Trek fan and ever dreamed about owning one of these devices, this is your chance.

Quick Take

Value:  Very Entertaining, but that’s it.
Would I Buy Again:  YES!
Learning Curve: None
Who is it for:  Trekkies
What I like:  It’s every Star Trek fans dream, and even though its just a make believe device, there is something cool about having a very realistic looking one on my iPhone.  Maybe it’s the form factor, or maybe its the touch, but either way, its very cool.
What I Don’t:  Not much, but looking forward to more of these types of Star Trek simulators. 

Final Statement: If you are a big Star Trek fan this app will definitely give you a few good laughs.  The developer did a great job with this and it is absolutely worth my .99.  I’m looking forward to more of these.  

Read the Developer's Notes:
Your Personal L.C.A.R.S* for iPhone

iLCARS turns your iPhone to intergalactic handeld multifunction scanner or more precisely Library Computer Acces/Retrieval System

Want to find some pesky elementary particles? Turn on Subatomic Particle Scan and scan around. Maybe the boson Higgs has lost is nearby you ... or even the feared subatomic blackhole.

Wish to know little more details about your friends? Switch to Bio-scan mode and point to your friend. iLCARS will quickly reveal all important information. For example if there is any brain activity nearby ;)

New geological place? Be sure to check for seismic activity with Geo-scan before entering. It’s never a bad thing to be extra cautious.

iLCARS provides many ways to entertain yourself and your friends.O U R   T A K E  .  .  .
