This Star Wars app is the app you're looking for

Most Star Wars fans will know that Episode VII will be arriving in December and that there's a new multi-player game called Star Wars Battlefront. What many will know however, is that there's an official Star Wars app.

Available for iOS and Android devices, the app pushes the latest news, media, social updates and even has an interactive countdown feature for when Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives. Naturally, you'll be able to align yourself with the dark or light side of the Force, by selecting a theme you're more aligned with. Both themes feature different designs, sounds, and animations.

You can take customizable selfies with this app.

There's also a weather forecast feature.

Here's a list of features of the app:

  • News: Get instant notifications on big announcements from across the franchise, including trailer releases, movie updates and game news. The news feed is fully customizable, so users can filter which platforms their updates are coming from, and which aspects of the Star Wars franchise they're hearing about.
  • Augmented Reality: Bring the Star Wars universe to life by unlocking 3D characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens using an exclusive augmented reality camera feature. The trigger for this feature will change over time, introducing new characters and objects.
  • Videos: Watch official Star Wars videos, including movie trailers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and more.
  • Force Trainer: Wield a lightsaber and hone your skills by playing with the Force Trainer, an interactive activity where users can duel a training remote, as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope.
  • Star Wars “Selfie”: Take and share a Star Wars “selfie” in various iconic costumes and settings, including Jedi, Princess Leia, Han Solo’s carbon-freeze, and more.
  • GIFs: Share animated GIFs with friends and family of memorable scenes and characters from the Star Wars movies and TV shows, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars Rebels.
  • Soundboard: Play classic sound clips and sound effects from your favorite Star Wars characters, creatures, weapons, vehicles, and scenes.
  • Star Wars History: Discover behind-the-scenes fun facts with the “This Day In Star Wars History” feature.
