[Devblog] EVE Portal: New mobile app

From a dev blog:

SPOILER WARNING!
We are pleased to announce that EVE Portal, the EVE Online Mobile app, has been released today as an open beta for both Android and iPhone. This first iteration of EVE Portal will include base level of functionality, with more to come in the future.

The initial release of the app includes character profiles for as many of your characters as you wish to track, an activity feed populated by in-game notifications, the ability to send and receive EVE Mail from tracked characters, the in-game calendar for all tracked characters, and the ability to buy PLEX and Aurum through our secure store. These can be accessed via the icons along the bottom of the app window.

Character Listing

The first button opens the character listing. From here, you can see an overview of all of the characters you have added already, and add additional characters if you wish. Characters must be added one at time, even if they are on the same account. However, you can add characters from multiple accounts.


Adding a new character - Click for full size

Touching one of the character entries will open up further details on the character. Swiping a character entry to the left will remove the character from the list.

The character sheet shows a number of details:

The character’s portrait
Current Alliance and Corporation
Current wallet status
The Character’s age
Total Skill points
The active ship
The character’s location
The current skill queue, including time remaining on each skill
Any jump clones, their locations, and the implants they have installed.

The Character Sheet - Click for Full Size

Activity Feed

The activity feed allows you to see when particular events of interest occur in-game. It will also cause your phone to alert you when the event occurs with push notifications, which can be disabled for each type of event to suit the preferences of individual pilots. At release, it will list the following events:

New Mail
When a Character’s Skill Queue is Empty
When a Skill has completed training
When you have a new contract assigned to you
When a PLEX is donated to one of your characters
When a new Corporation Vote has been initiated
When you have been awarded a new medal
When the CEO of your corporation has been replaced
When a one of your corporation applications has been accepted or rejected
When a pilot has been removed from a corporation
When you have declared war or had war declared on you
When you have received a new calendar invite


You can choose to disable push alerts and visibility in the activity feed for each separate entry to make sure you only get the notifications you care about. We will be adding more notifications in the future, so let us know which ones you would find most useful in the dev blog comments thread.

Mail

The mail icon opens up mail for the currently selected character, allowing you to see all mails that they have received, including corporation and alliance mails. You can also compose new mails, with the “To:” field featuring character name matching similar to the client. Mail arrival can also trigger phone notifications, so you’ll know any time someone sends you fan mail.



Calendar

The calendar allows you to see upcoming events for the currently selected character. This includes personal, corporation and alliance entries. You can also accept, decline or tentatively accept invitations on the calendar. This is an especially useful feature for smaller corporations or alliances as it allows them to broadcast events to their members and get responses, even if they’re offline.



Store

EVE Portal also allows you to purchase additional PLEX or Aurum for the account of the currently selected character if you have saved your payment details in account management. This is handy for topping up quickly from your phone.



We hope you enjoy using EVE Portal, which can be downloaded now on both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. If you encounter any issues while using EVE Portal, you can feel free to contact our Customer Support team for further assistance. While this initial release already contains some useful features, we will be continuing to add more functionality over time to enable you to do more, even when away from your computer. If you have particular ideas, you should let us know in the comments section.

Re: [Devblog] EVE Portal: New mobile app

I've been using the EVE Portal for some time now, but have recently run into issues with reading mailed messages.

Get the generic 'connection error' like when trying to access without an internet connection.

Note: Have referenced issues for EVE Portal as on iOS

Re: [Devblog] EVE Portal: New mobile app

The issue with reading mails seems to have been resolved, although i am still dissapointed in the app...you can do so much more in other thrird-party tools. I know its an open beta, but come on - you cant even see your complete traning queue, mails from mailing-lists can not be found in the given locations and so on...

Well, it's CCP ... I guess we're lucky they even bothered trying (even if they failed to meet basic standards) to make something instead of blatantly rely 100% on the community to give people basic features :)

Y'all vikings are crazy. :P

But I guess things are much more comfortable in Sweden, by analogy to Iceland. :)
