Simple business tool.

I have an iPad 3G coming and I've already purchased this software (even though I don;t use an iPhone or iPod Touch) - but it's not to go in and "hang-out" in SL.

It's a business tool in that will will allow me to pop-in-world on the fly (via 3G if necessary) to pay money, send inventory, IM Chat - all for customer-support-related issues.

In the end, to me, that is a selling point I will use: "very fast access to business manager and support" - well, except for those six to eight hours when I am dead to the world cutting logs.

Sweet. Is it a 3D viewer or just text interface? If 3d how is building with it?

And does it have a gigantic sidebar blocking 33% of the screen that shoves center view off center?


I use it on the iPhone and share your liking this app.
It seems to me that for the iPad with its big screen, there is only one way to go for the developers.... Real 3D immersion. Yes it probably requires a wifi conection, but at a reaonable low resolution it may even work in 3G.

Bill Friis

Yeah. No photo in-world. When you "poke random places" on that map, do you go there, or what?

Adric Antfarm

Your hands are aging well ahead of the rest of you.

Uh oh, i ve been trying to access sl on my iPad using this app and I get a message saying that second life can not be accessed from this computer.....
First time it happens to me, does anyone experience the same thing?

Pocket Metaverse...

Got it. Use it everyday. Love it!

But I still want a complete log-on showing my avatar in its surroundings.

Randal Oulton

I was surprised that, within a sim, you can't move around, no arrows to move or anything, or am I missing something?

Fay Jansen

I was wondering if youre logged on, you can actually see the pop up menus. Like for example if you get a notecard, do you get the menu to accept it?


You can look at inventory, but you cant do anything with it,
Needs a lot more functionality,
is really only a chat app


I just installed the app on my iPad 2 but I don't know how to login, I am puttin my family name, first name, and password but it doesn't seem to work. I don't know where I should put my username..
Please anyone can help me?


I've used it, it's ok. I prefer to use remote access to either my windows or Mac computer and fully login. Works perfectly using Splashtop remote desktop app! Try it!

Lonka Simondsen

OMG....i LOVE this....I just found it. I allready got it for my phone.


$4.99 for something that is free, don't let the developer tell you that they pay for access, SL is a free game. there are other apps that are available for free and advertise-free as well
