That said, this would be an awesome app. I have been wanting something like this since day 1. I can see the safety concerns already, but it could be fun. It would definitely make my wifi-enabled work more satisfying :P

I'm afraid I think this is an absolutely horrible idea. You should have to actually log in to play the game.

What I would like to see is a longer queue for crew skill assignments and, most importantly, an option to queue missions as well as crafting.

Yep first day I was damn I would pay 25$ a month for a subscription with crafting application access....

... then I flip flopped on this idea because it would flood the market. A lot of us with 50's are rolling with money... to much to be honest. We could send our companions out all day without making a dent. Especially those of us that took advantage of slicing. (I had my wife and my son slicing for me while I was at work and ended up sitting on 6 million credits). This influx of resources would drown the market making people who do not have access to a smart phone suffer.

So my vote is no ... and hell no out of respect for my fellow gamers who do not have access to a smart phone. Now you could also say that I took advantage similarly by slicing... and yes I did. I also believed it needed to be patched as well. And that 6 million credits has been feeding the market of my alts on both Imperial and Republic side of my server. So there is an upside.

If some app like this was released I bet they would make crafting 10x more grindy. It isn't that hard to level up. To allow you to send your companions out continually all day while not even playing would be a bad idea.

Why exactly is this horrible?

As someone who works full time, I have very little playtime, a couple hours a night at best. The only reason I was able to hit 50 was that I took vacation around the holidays. Being able to do some of the crew skilling at work through my iPhone would be fantastic. I fail to see how this would be an unfair advantage since the missions still cost credits and I would not be making any while I did this. And how would this be any different from someone that just stays on all day and sends their crew away (while being able to still make credits I might add)

I'm not sure I would like it tied to the security key app though (depending on implementation) since I have the physical Key for that.

Overall bad idea. There already is some long haul missions you can unlock, that you can send your companions on before you log. If you are using a VNC program to remotely play personally I think that should be considered a bannable offense since you are giving yourself an unfair advantage. Just my opinion.

I wouldn't exactly call that fair. I doubt it would ever be implemented.
Its really not that different than WoW's auctioneer app they have for Droid and iPhone. Seems like a perfectly reasonable request. I doubt it would ever get implemented, but it would be a cool idea.
