Hellerman is working on an iOS application called the Starcraft 2 Gameboard that will let you fully control Starcraft 2 from your iPhone or iPad.
Have you dreamed of playing popular strategy game Starcraft 2
using an iPhone or even an iPad? Aothough that sounds like a usability nightmare, Daniel plan to make Starcraft 2 available on the iPhone and iPad regardless of the potential issues.
Hellerman is working on an iOS application called the Starcraft 2 Gameboard
that will let you fully control Starcraft 2
from your iPhone or iPad, complete with "mini-map control, detailed unit statistics, and easy touch access to the game's most important hotkeys and macros," he claims.
Blizzard, the company that develops the popular Starcraft game franchise, is known for promptly shutting down third-party projects related to its games that don't follow its terms of service to the letter. The future of the Starcraft 2 Gameboard
therefore seems uncertain.
StarCraft 2 Coming to Your iPhone and iPad Soon
However, the FAQ section of the application's website claims that the system "does not modify essential Starcraft 2 functions" and that the device works "almost as another keyboard, therefore it is completely compatible with Starcraft 2." Furthermore, the site claims the application is "not a hack" and "does not modify any game files whatsoever."
The app should become available in September. What do you think: Will it be possible to play Starcraft 2 from your iPhone or iPad
? Could such an application be useful or is it just a gimmick?
