The Call of Duty Elite app launched for iOS devices last week. This week, the application is now live for Android devices brandishing version 1.6 and beyond.
Activision touts the Call of Duty Elite service as one that works to connect like-minded gamers and help them better themselves at one of their favorite shooters. The whole point of this app is to bring the “must-have” Call of Duty Elite experience along with you wherever you go.
The Android Market sales page boasts a few features that will further “immerse” you in the Call of Duty experience. Here are those features:
– Check your Career Summary for deep details on your multiplayer activity. Analyze your progress over time to see which areas you need to improve in and which areas you excel in.
– Review Recent Matches to track your performance on a match-by-match basis.
– View and edit your Custom Classes on the go. Push your changes into the game so you’re ready to play the moment you load up multiplayer.
– Track your Challenge progress to help you work toward the highest XP gains.
Speaking as someone that finds this design choice frustrating in almost every custom class shooter on the market, I find myself wondering how in synch Custom Class edits will be between the mobile app and the actual game. When I’m playing a lengthy match, there are times that I wish I could edit my classes without backing out to the game’s lobby. If this app let’s me do that while in the midst of playing a game, I consider it well worth the time to set up.
Have any of you folks given the Call of Duty Elite app a go on either the iOS or Android platforms? If so, let us know what you thought of the experience overall. It’s free, but is it worth taking the time to snag?
