Time to get rid of all the 3rd party mobile apps and get the official one! EVE Portal is now available for download in beta for both Android and iPhone.

EVE Portal will allow pilots to view basic character information, track skill training, send and receive EVEmail, utilize the in game calendar and purchase PLEX and Aurum, all with push notifications to keep busy capsuleers up to date with what's going on in New Eden when not connected via the EVE Client.

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.

Also, with the rapid closing of the free2play transition, CCP released a short video that features some of the highlights that will become available with the expansion release next week.
