Some people don't need to work and can play all day every day. So what? If anything this allows people who can't be at their computer all day to make up a little bit of ground.

Did that actually work? Isn't it such a daunting task without a mouse at hand?

Full time students on break can play 20+ hours a day. There's an unfair advantage. Ditto for the unemployed, and 10,000 other cases. Should BW limit access to 4 hrs a day to make it fair for everyone?

I think EVE already has something like this, right? A web-based interface where you can queue up research and such? Not really all that different. I'd be for it.

Deal with it. That isn't fair. You should not get favored just because you aren't around to play. Thats life.

It's really a profitability issue for BW. How can BW make the most money, and everyone else needs to "deal with it."

If they think releasing an app to allow people to queue up companion missions is a profitable venture they may look into it, and if they don't think it's profitable they won't.

Personally, I'd love to see such an app, I'd even buy it for 2-5 bucks if it worked well and they maintained support for it.

I think it's a cool idea. It's really not giving people an advantage and not 'unfair' in any way to let others craft while they're not playing the game. You most likely won't want to be on your phone gathering resources and crafting all day because when you get back on you'll be broke!

Crafting itself makes you short on cash so letting people spend money while not making money is penalty enough for those that choose to do so outside of the game. It would be cool to be able to finish crafting items when not online. Even being able to do nothing more than monitor your crafting would be cool.

lol why are people so vehemently to an iPhone app that would let people work on something while they're at work / away?

are these the same people that complained about CEs having a special vendor? lol.

At any rate, I agree with the idea. Perhaps make it cost double the credits per mission :P
