Since SL GO was ditched, there were not many options to stay connected to your Second Life friends on your smartphone or tablets.
I reviewed the Pocket Metaverse app ( both in free and paid versions ) but those were only messaging features, no 3D view of the world.
Now I use an Android smartphone in real life and I was looking for an app that almost delivered the same features, but I got more than I could ask for. The 3D view is preferably used when you have a Wi-Fi connection or a 3G or 4G connection.
The Lumiya Viewer app is a paid app in the Google Play Store. But it surely is worth the money.
The app was designed by Alina Lyvette , a long term resident of Second Life.
She did a nice job developing the app, It offers a nice set of features.
It’s a great way to keep in contact with your Second Life friends when you are not able to get near your computer or laptop.
Not only can you chat with your SL friends, you can also send IMs and create notecards and edit them.
Also receiving and sending L$ is possible from within the app.
