App Giveaway: Farnsworth Video Communicator

Become an agent of Warehouse 13 and transform your iPhone into your very own Farnsworth with Farnsworth Video Communicator! You can send videos, audio and texts to other Farnsworth users, Facebook, and email.

If you couldn't tell from the video above, I'm having fun with this app :)

Turn your iPhone into a working Farnsworth just like the agents use on Warehouse 13!

  • Send and receive videos from fellow agents that look exactly like the messages do on Warehouse 13.
  • Send messages fast over any Internet connection: WiFi, 3G, CDMA and even EDGE.
  • Under deep cover or have an iDevice without a camera? You can send audio-only messages with an oscilloscope effect on-screen that matches your voice!
  • Post messages directly to Facebook - or email them directly from your Farnsworth.
  • Communicate securely. Only those you invite or those who have invited you can exchange messages with you.
  • Receive notifications of new messages – even if the Farnsworth app isn't active.
  • Install the Farnsworth app on multiple devices and your messages will be automatically copied via our server to all devices as you receive them.
  • Use the app on most iDevices, including the iPhone GS and up, iPad and iPad 2 (pixel-doubled graphics) and the iPod G4.
  • Check out the real-time shadow effects: They move as your iDevice moves.
  • Get messages directly from Warehouse 13! Artie has been known to check up on new agents in the field. And you never know when you might get an assignment from Claudia. Don't be hurt if she calls you a noob. That's a term of endearment. No, really.

Farnsworth Video Communicator is available on the iPhone for $0.99.

ezday42 says:

love the show sounds like fun

Gr8fulted says:

Perhaps only Arite truly understands Philo Farnsworth devices. So the question is, if Mrs. Frederic is now truly dead, as it appears, is Artie actually doing this or is this a ploy by someone like HG or Sykes to plant an unsuspecting double-agent. Get me Claudia!!!! And her guitar!

Allen says:

Living in the "Secret City" of Oak Ridge, TN, I have been a warehouse 13 agent for a while now, but never could get a Farnsworth issued to me. This is my chance. Please help me out with a copy !!!

Banobos says:

This looks like it would be a lot of fun. says:

Warehouse 13 has revived X-Files at its best. Pete and Myka are the best. The only way to emulate is with a personal Farnsworth.

i_am_ray says:
