Do you have a mobile telephone? Nobody here at RPS has one, seeing as our preferred method of communication is bellowing at one another down long drainpipe-like devices of Jim’s own creation (the nagpipes, he calls them), but on the off chance you do have a mobile phone, and you play World of Warcraft, Blues reports that Blizzard has now started offering a week-long free trial of it’s World of Warcraft Remote service for “Android and iPhone”. Remarkable! You can get phones in your eyes now? I must consider getting one.
World of Warcraft Remotes retails at $2.99 per month and offers a couple of features at present. The first, Remote Auction House, lets you not just check on your auctions, but bid, buy and create auctions without your character needing to be at the in-game auction house, as well as being capable of notifying you while you’re in an important meeting that you’ve been outbit on those Leggings of the Winged Serpent. It also gets you the “unique ability” to re-list expired auctions.
The second, Remote Guild Chat, offers… remote guild chat. Which sounds nice.
To give the free trial a shot, simply download World of Warcraft Remote onto your phone this very minute. Do we have any long-term users out there?
