Neverwinter Mobile Access App

May 24, 2013 9 Comments

Neverwinter Mobile Access app iconThis week I am very excited to have my company, Code Summoner, publish it’s first Android app (my first mobile phone app of any kind). It’s called Neverwinter Mobile Access, it’s free, and it’s for Android (for now). iOS will be next and then I will venture to see how well it works for Windows phones and Blackberry (I need to get my hands on some testing units).

If you know me personally, you know I’m a gamer. I’m mainly a PC gamer, but consoles have a big place in my heart. One game I’m playing lately is Neverwinter Online from Perfect World and Cryptic Studios. If you enjoy fantasy games, and MMOs, you’ve got to check this one out. Neverwinter Online is 100% free to play. It’s in Open Beta and it’s very polished and fun. You may not end up playing for months, but it’ll keep you entertained for a weekend at least.

Anyway, I’m getting off track. Check out my app!

Features:

Neverwinter Mobile Access on a Samsung S4

  • Direct access to the Nerverwinter online gateway
  • Access all of your characters
  • Manage your auction house bids
  • Select new profession tasks while on holidays or at work
  • Manage your guild or see what events are planned

Get on Google Play

It’s a very simple app: it’s a glorified iframe for the Neverwinter Online gateway. The additional functionality that I’ve added is a menu that hovers over the iframe window which will house helpful quick links. I can’t directly affect the iframe, since browsers prevent this kind of cross-domain activity but I don’t really need to since Perfect World has built their site to work for the mobile experience, although, they need to optimize better for the core Android browser (issues with scrolling professions currently).

      Hi Christian. It’s planned to have this for iOS iPhone and iPad, but right now I am not happy with it’s performance on Android. I need to work out the performance issues on Android before I can publish to the Apple store.

        How far are you with the iOS app for the gateway?

  • bec

    Just so everyone knows, this has been posted on the Code Summoner website – “iOs, Windows, and Blackberry versions are not planned.” for this app. So you can stop waiting.

    I know this is an old thread, but does this also work for the xbox version of the game?

      Hey @jaredbud:disqus. No it doesn’t work for Xbox. The Gateway team never added support for consoles, just PC. And they have completely shut down the Gateway site now so I need to update the app!

      • Jaredbud

        That would be great I just started getting into playing the game on the Xbox. Keep me updated
