This post has been long overdue.

Firstly, a huge thank you to those who keep enquiring about my X-wing Targeting Computer app. Secondly, please accept my apologies for not posting sooner.

So what have I been up to over the past few months?

Well the app is about as ready as it can be without some external help. Unfortunately the largest hurdle is getting licensing sorted out and it’s proving to be a major problem. I have been in contact with various publishers who were unfortunately unable to take the project on for one reason or another. And getting the contact details for the correct individuals at Lucas Licensing or LucasArts seems to be impossible.

So I guess the only way I can take this project further now is for you guys to re-tweet this post and see if it can make its way into the hands of someone who might be able to help. How does that sound?

I know it’s not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately I’m unable to take this forward on my own and have been advised not to release it onto the Android Market without getting licensing cleared – I don’t want George Lucas sending bounty hunters after me after all.

A huge shout out to those who have already passed me contact details for various individuals they thought might be able to help – Bobby I owe you big time for your patience and help as always. Oh and for those asking for an iPhone version – I did start work on this but I’m not going to continue unless I can get licensing sorted out.

So hopefully someone out there can help me out with this one. Until then I’m afraid I’m the only one who’s gonna know just how awesome it feels to have your very own targeting computer set-up in your car.

Thanks, and may the Force be with you. Always.

  1. Spreading da word!

  2. hmm…isn’t there anybody from the countless Forums or Clubs ( 501st ^^ ) with any kind of connection to the ‘ranch’ ? This project offers more potential than most fanbased or even licenced stuff, where else do you get more fandome + function as the tauntaun-sleeping bag?

  3. that’s a real shame, I hope the licensing gets sorted out as it is a really cool app.
    Any chance of not charging for it to get round licensing?

    Just hold them off for a few more seconds!

  4. Have you tried contacting these guys?
    They developed the original Phonesaber app for the iPhone, before being contacted by someone who works for THQ Wireless, who hold the rights to Star Wars Mobile apps. Maybe they can put you in contact with the guy they spoke with?

  5. I posted this in the forums on, Hopefully someone will pick up on this

  6. really hope this get to market, I’ll make sure to tweet/get it out there when I when I get home

    Force be with you

  7. So? Any news?
    Is there A New Hope? 🙂

  8. send it to me and I won’t tell a soul. 🙂
