I proposed this idea in Ch3 World Chat today, and got a couple positive responses. So basically, you guys should make an app for hand-held phones (iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, etc.) that would let you interact with your sprites! By "interact", I mean Chat, Train, Collect, and maybe Craft. It would pretty much show your Sprites' Cottages on your smartphone's screen, and then you would use it as you normally would online. Then anything you collect or craft would be mailed to your character's mailbox. As for experience, there could be a new NPC that would update experience info collected while using the app.
This would benefit you guys as a company, because you could sell the app on the Android Market or the iOS App Store for $.99 or $1.99 or whatever, giving you guys another form of income, rather than just AP Cards! It would also help out the game, because you could make the cost of sending out your sprite higher than it usually is, helping out your so-called "Gold Sink Plan" that I've been hearing about. It would benefit us as players because it would give us something to do during maintenance and while we're away from our computers/laptops.
Please leave your criticisms, and reasons this wouldn't work/is stupid below. I would greatly appreciate it
And this is the product of having nothing to do during maintenance
If you guys create this app, you wouldn't have to deal with long threads like this >,<
