Why, in ANY deities name, would you make only an iDevice app?

You know, android IS open source with little to no app restrictions? Seriously. Get with the picture. Not everyone are brainless iSheep.

I want the app now for the vendor, then when my collectors edition gets here, Ill use that.

The only thing i ask for this christmas, is my CE edition replaced since i was sent a broken one missing stuff

The iAPP does not work for anyone atm, because you have no CD key to register with it.

There is a droid app in the works as well, its just that Apple is weak sauce and iTunes leaked the new app.

If you read the text in the HelpCenter, you will notice that apps for Android as well as Blackberrys are in the works, the iDevice app was just the first one release.

The chance for Androids having the app by launch is however, and regrettably, slim.

see, point still stands. they rushed the iAPP out first. And no, Itunes wasnt the only one who leaked it. It's the first thing that pops up when i open the SWTOR launcher.

The authenticator page here says that's it's available now so I'm not sure if Apple leaked it.

Do you have specifics as to why this is the case, or is this just speculation?

Unfortunately I don't have that answer, Othersider. I'm only passing on the information that Rockjaw tweeted earlier today.

I was able to download it using iTunes on my PC and then sync/copy it to my iPhone. I then installed it on my account here at swtor.com. Even though I don't yet have Early Access, I can still login to the client (I simply get the "no valid subscription" message). It's definitely working, because if I type in the wrong code, I get the standard "incorrect password" type message instead.
