Rift players who want to stay connected to the game even when they can’t be at their computer can pick up the mobile app now for iOS devices. Not sure about the functionality of it, but there it is. Android version of the app will be released in the near future.

From the press release:

    The beta version of the Trion Worlds Rift™ Mobile application is now available as a free download for iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, via the App Store. Players with an Apple mobile device can extend the Rift experience no matter where they are with real-time chat, games that grant prizes, and zone event alerts. Rift Mobile can be used by anyone with a game account and character, regardless of their current subscription status.

    The iOS launch is just the first stage of the Rift Mobile rollout. A beta version of the app will be available for Android phones later this month, with a full launch on both devices planned sometime during Q1.

    Rift Mobile features:

    Social Features – Chat in real-time with friends and guild mates. Keep up to date with guild happenings with the latest wall postings
    Loot Cards – Play Planar Invasion, Crafty Critters, and Shinies for a chance to instantly win in-game planar loot, crafting materials, and artifacts
    Zone Events – Always know when a Zone Event is kicking off on your shard by setting up these handy alerts
