Final Fantasy XIV's fans may have been missed a little announcement that FFXIV's new mobile companion app is currently in development, and from what little we know of it so far, it might actually prove to be quite the valuable tool for those who live and breathe Eorzea even outside of the game.
The details are rather sparse at the moment, but what we do know is that the mobile app provides players with the ability to access certain in-game features when they're away from their computer.
Players can chat with Free Company members, organize events with the scheduler, and even register an extra favored Aetheryte destination. More importantly, players will also be able to organize their inventory and armoury chest, and even access the market board to buy and sell items. That is pretty huge.
Final Fantasy XIV looks to be taking a page out of Bungie's book to introduce an app that actually offers a lot of utility outside of the game, and also allows players to be more efficient with their playing time.
Additionally, Square Enix is planning on releasing a premium plan with the app, and premium features include being able to sort through retainer inventories, registering an additional retainer, and getting double saddlebag capacity. The drawback of not going premium is the inability to organize retainer stock, since that's probably where most of your selling items are going to be.
Even so, the standard plan should be enough for most people, as long as you have your stock stashed in your main inventory. It's still sounds like a great convenience option for those who make their Gil off the market board, and it's always nice being notified when you've made a big sale.
At the time of writing, the mobile app is still in development, and Square Enix hasn't offered a solid release window or pricing details for the premium plan. Considering how much Final Fantasy XIV loves filling up the player's inventory slots within the span of a few hours, this companion app can't come soon enough.
I imagine lots of players will appreciate the convenience that it brings. Meanwhile, don't forget that our website offer enough Final fantasy xiv gil.
