The best part is that this app is free of charge on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play store and it is available in U.S and Canada. The app mainly uses technology from Qualcomm Incorporate and its theme is to unlock new content by performing missions. The app makes use of geo-fencing technology for an experience that is based on location and it will help encourage the viewers to go to cinemas and watch the movie. Audio scan function is also present in the app, that a user of the app can turn on while listening to Star Trek Into Darkness content and the app will automatically scan the audio from Television or other media sources. Scanning of images function allows users to scan images available to them either in magazines, posters or any other image source. In addition latest and fresh content of Star Trek Into Darkness including videos and wallpapers will be available to the app users directly on their mobile devices. Users of the app will also have an exclusive opportunity to win different offers and prizes.
According to different sources, the app will have around 30-40 missions. Eight to 10 missions are available at the moment. Each mission requires you to earn points by scanning the audio and pictures and you will be able to unlock new missions. More missions will be available on weekly basis.
According to IMDB, Star Trek Into Darkness will feature Captain Kirk and the role is played by Chris Pine. As they call him “one man weapon of mass destruction” is played by John Harrison and the rumours are that a Young Khan will be a part of the movie but we will have to wait for 17th May to confirm this.
