I was looking for someone to contact about a possible iPhone app. You were one of the admins that caught my eye. Looking for an email address to contact someone about the use of the database here. Who would you recommend?

Understood. I would actually be entirely willing to put the app on the store as a free app. I'm honestly just looking to learn a bit more about how the coding of apps works. I was curious about making it essentially like the wikipanion app if that is alright with you all. Just let me know what you think, and I'll contact you further as I am able to figure out what I am able to do with it. --Xstefanx 05:05, January 15, 2011 (UTC)
- Again, if you do not charge for the app, then you're allowed to use the MA DB without too much issue. The minute you start charging in any way for the MA information, there are issues. -- sulfur 12:33, January 15, 2011 (UTC)
I'm wondering if you've made any progress on your plan to make a Memory Alpha iPhone app? I ask because I've started to use my phone for basically everything and I would /love/ to have MA with me on the go, able to look up any bit of Star Trek info really quickly in a mobile fashion.
I'm sure you can do it! Good luck :)
