iPhone Authenticator real?

I just downloaded what appears to be the SW:TOR mobile authenticator app for my iPhone. I was instantly suspicious due to the fact that upon opening the app for the first time, it asked for my serial number (which I don't have yet anyway).

Checking the site for info, it states that the authenticator should be paired by entering the number provided by the app to my account details here on the official site, which makes sense as this was exactly how it was done for WoW.

The only weird thing is that checking the publisher/developers - a certain EA Swirl Sarl - other apps on iTunes shows a number of seemingly legit EA apps that have many great reviews.

So, is this the real deal or a third party scam?

Its more the word "guess" that's a little shaky, implying hes not 100%
