22-Sep-2010 New Features for the Mobile Armory
We've just released a free update for the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory, the official World of Warcraft application for iPhone and iPod touch. The noteworthy additions include:
  • Every character profile now has a 3D model viewer similar to that on the Web version of the Armory. A character's 3D model is displayed with his or her equipped items and in-game physical appearance; you can rotate it, view animations, and more.
  • A character's in-game activity (including item acquisitions, achievements, and boss kills), is now captured in an activity feed. You can display this feed by using the drop-down menu at the top of a character profile.
  • Professions (both primary and secondary) are now displayed on character profiles and are accessed by the same character profile drop-down menu.
For more information and these and other features (including the recently-released Remote Auction House), click here.
Please note that there is a known issue with this version of the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory preventing the application from automatically accessing your Mobile Authenticator code. We will be releasing a fix for this issue with the next update. In the meantime, we ask that you open the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app and write down your code before logging in to the Mobile Armory app. We apologize for the inconvenience.
