William Shatner is back - as an app

www.ottawacitizen.com...

RALEIGH, North Carolina — Actor William Shatner is having a moment. A couple of years after CBS cancelled his Twitter-inspired $#*! My Dad Says TV comedy, Shatner is at the top of the tech world.

The former Star Trek captain, now 81, is featured in Blindlight Apps Shatoetry, which catapulted to the top of the entertainment app list on Apple iTunes last week on its first day of release.

The celebrity app allows users to choose from hundreds of words to arrange sentences, which Shatner will then recite in his trademark voice and style. There is also a mode that allows Shatner fans to collaborate on “Shatisms” and there are single-player challenges like creating Haiku and poetry.

Shatner, is currently touring the U.S. with his critically acclaimed one-man Broadway show, Shatner’s World:

Q: How would you like to expand this app moving forward? Perhaps adding music?

A: Well, we have that in mind. Words to music. We have in mind holiday things. We have in mind events in your life, words so that you can use them as well. We will increase this if people love it and tell other people that they love it. When we get an audience we know that is worthwhile, we will add to it.

Q: One audience you know you definitely have out there is Star Trek fans. Do you see any opportunities with special app add-ons for them?

A: Well, yes. I don’t think we’ll leave opportunity unexplored, but I wanted to be very careful about how we introduce it so it is not something that is derogatory or stupid. I want to make sure that it’s used in the way it’s meant to be used, which is for your entertainment.

Q: Do you see opportunities for other actors to work with you on this app?

A: We hope that it becomes popular enough to interest people into doing some words.

Shatoetry Haiku...it is weird to listen to Shatner saying poetry...weird

As corny as this sounds, I think this will sell to app consumers. I mean, there are a lot of Captain Kirk enthusiasts and other Trekkie fans, so I think to hear the Shatner on the everyday fan`s phone will be a must!

This could be a quick hit, but a fast fall from popularity. I am sure that once you have made about 2 poems, you will either be fed up with the voice..or, if you had enough to drink, this will bring out a ton of laughter out of you and your friends


Either way, it should be entertaining nevertheless

A: I have iPhone, an iPad and I will be getting an iPad Mini shortly.

lol
he has his communicator, and will be upgrading to a the newer tricorder, all that's missing is a phaser.





so I think to hear the Shatner on the everyday fan`s phone will be a must!

he should have other voices like spock, mckoy, etc.
maybe the next app

ALWAYS WARN OF READING ANYTHING SHOW RESPECT AND INTENTION.

The ARCHON S control everything,every word is encoded in every language in the world.
The subliminal encoded intention of evil is everywhere.symbols,words.
The nature balancing words are words like aywa,enock etc balanced.
We where hum-on became hum in, then human,all word hold the math and truth.
The empire isthe institution,the codification,of derangement.
it is insane and imposes its insanity on us by violence,since its nature is a violent one.
When you realize the truth all will fall to there knees and cry.
I come with this message from SEA GNOOX .They are the ARCHON,THEY WILL
TRY TO TAKE YOUR HERITAGE FROM YOU.They are arcons,now archins trying
to be ARCHANS.Open your eyes this is no fake simulation.IT is real.

Every word is encoded ,the truth is in math,it is the genius of the 3,6,9 ask Tesla.
Things are produced on this planet by codification and intent.
You that know html code know that numbers symbols letters make
happy faces appear and web pages appear with source code ,this
happens in real life.The truth is in the math it does not lie.
