Verizon Android Phones Should Use the Force and Download This Star Wars App

Illustration for article titled Verizon Android Phones Should Use the Force and Download This Star Wars App

You don't need the R2-D2 Droid phone to download this app, but for full credibility I'd suggest all owners of that phone fork out the $3 it costs. In fact, any Verizon customer with an Android phone should pay up.

It's celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, and while the app itself is free to download it costs $3 if you do want to make the most of it. Revolving around the Empire Strikes Back movie, there are live wallpapers, movie clips, photos, soundboards and widgets.

Not to mention a Bounty Hunter scavenger hunt and Star Wars news feed, for staying up-to-date on all cursed 3D-related nonsense. The app is charged to your Verizon bill rather than Google Checkout, so at least you can forget about the small charge until the end of the month. [Droid Life]

I'm becoming wary of all these app pushing going on at Gizmodo. A Star Wars app boasting wallpapers, movie clips, photos, soundboards and widgets is hardly a groundbreaking development to be lauded about, especially for $3! Come on Giz, fess up! You guys get kickbacks for advertising apps don't you???
