'Aion Exchange' App Released, Grants Mobile Access to In-Game Economy

By Jeff Mattas, Oct 19, 2010 4:00pm PDT Publisher NCSoft has released a new app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) for its MMO, Aion. The application, called 'Aion Exchange' gives players external access to Aion's in-game economy.

The Aion Exchange continues a trend of external iOS applications like the previously announced app in development for Guild Wars 2, and Blizzard's recent Auction House for World of Warcraft.

Aion Exchange is described as a "completely indexed and searchable item database" that allows players to browse and sort lists of in-game items in order to deduce things like relative pricing and current marketplace trends.

The features of the Aion Exchange include:

  • My Aion and Item Search: View all the characters on your game account, along with stats, equipment, and more. In addition to giving instant access to character info, Aion Exchange also serves as a comprehensive item compendium containing information about all the equipment available in the game.

  • Broker and Price Stats: Leverage the power of market trends and highly-indexed search criteria to ensure you're on top of the latest Broker trends. See weekly and monthly insights for the top five auctions, most expensive auctions and least expensive auctions, all organized in helpful categories such as weapon, skill, consumable and more.

  • Wish List: Similar to what one would find in many online stores, the Wish List allows gamers to add an item to a Wish List to see the lowest price and the number of auctions available for that item, making it easy to know when to snag your favorite item from the Broker.

  • Push Notifications: A quick and convenient way to monitor how well your online transactions are going, push notifications will tell you the number of items you have sold without having to log on or open the app.
  • Aion Exchange is available under the Utility and Reference categories in the iTunes App Store for Aion Exchange is available under the Utility and Reference categories in the iTunes App Store for $1.99.

    The 7.8MB download supports iPhone OS 3.0 or later in English, French and German. It requires an NCSoft Master Account and an active Aion game subscription and a cellular or Wi-Fi connection.
