CBS Interactive has launched an official Star Trek PADD application for the iPad. The 190MB program contains a browsable library of Star Trek information presented with a distinctive user interface modeled after the Federation's LCARS software environment. And because we're Star Trek nerds, we thought we'd take a look. You know, for science.
The information that users can read in the PADD application appears to be the same that is hosted in the database on the official StarTrek.com website. The database entries are organized into categories, which include characters, species, vessels, places, and episodes. It draws details from all canonical Star Trek sources, including the movies, television shows, and animated series.
