Greetings from the Second Life mobile app! Second Life is in the works to release a mobile app possibly within this year. The app will be accessible to both IOS and Android users. My experience on the iPhone 14 Pro has been quite smooth thus far. If you hold a Premium Plus membership, you’re eligible to be a part of the testing crew. Become a tester.
Currently, I’m checking out the features using my alt account since my primary account has the Premium Lifetime membership and the alpha testing is reserved for Premium Plus members. The mobile app’s functionalities are somewhat limited at the moment, but I’m hopeful that we’ll see it expand with more options soon.
Observations about the mobile app:
- Chat with friends
- Explore Places & Destination Guide
No world map yet
- No Linden balance
- No Land tab
- Difficult to navigate/move around.
I have not yet mastered walking, that’s why I’m running everywhere
- Difficult to sit on objects
- Can’t select anything
- Can’t change clothes
Can wear saved outfits (must do so by logging into desktop viewer)
- Rezzing is slowish, expected I guess?
- Looks great, way better than that dreadful Speedlight viewer
If you’d like to see more mobile app coverage, let me know in the comments! Your feedback will prompt me to dive into the app more frequently and explore different features.
