We’ve come to realize something about iPhone owners: they’re obsessed with doing everything on their iPhone. Did you know there’s even an iPhone app that will dial 911 for you on your iPhone? Ridiculous!
But despite our better judgment, we’re still interested in the latest piece of silly, do-it-on-your-phone-instead software we’ve stumbled upon. Check out the StarCraft 2 RTS Gameboard app, which turns your iPhone or iPad into an RTS controller.
The StarCraft 2 Gameboard is currently scheduled to release on the Apple App Store this September for a ridiculous sum of $2.99. It’s designed to work with Battle.net and the developer reiterates that the app is not a hack and does not modify the game’s files in any way.

We’re pretty sure that using the StarCraft 2 RTS Gameboard app to play StarCraft II will be a great handicap to anyone interested in actually enjoying the game, sending your APM (actions-per-minute) down the toilet. On the other hand, this app will allow iPhone users to use their beloved device for yet another task that does not require an special app.
In terms of how the app works, it sounds pretty similar to the WoW fishing app previously featured on GamesRadar. This app allows users to use their iPhone like a Wii remote to mimic the act of casting your line and reeling in fish off the shores of Azeroth. The WoW fishing app is still available on the Apple App Store, so we don’t expect Blizzard to take any legal action against the StarCraft 2 RTS Gameboard developers anytime soon. You can find out more about the upcoming StarCraft 2 app on the official site.
