CBS Interactive has released a new official Star Trek application for your iPhone that turns it into an original series Star Trek communicator, complete with authentic sounds and voice effects. See below for demo video and more details.
Turn your iPhone into a Star Trek communicator
The new official Star Trek Communicator can be used for fun or for real. The design replicates the original series communicator seen used by Kirk and his crew and the app comes with sounds from the original Star Trek, and it even ‘opens up’ when you flick your wrist. It has a paging function that allows for interactive role playing and a full dialer page that allows access to your personal contacts.

The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and costs $1.99 (although the phone function will only work with iPhone). It can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
This app is a case of if you can’t beat them, join them. It was developed by Talkndog Mobile last year who released an earlier version as the "Star Radio Communicator". After CBS had that unlicensed app pulled the Talkndog team worked with CBS to develop this new officially licensed version. The Talkndog team talk about the new app in interview with iPhone Savior. iPhone Savior also have put out this demo video.
