Description


The system provides a fully tweakable smartphone with features that you can see in modern AAA titles like taking photos, calling, mailing, web-surfing, music listening, etc. and even more. There are plenty of tiny little details that will make your smartphone experience in game as realistic as possible: there is a notification system, notification center where you can also put any widget you like (weather forecast, music player widget, etc.), smooth page scrolling, battery usage (optional) and apps search.

You will have 8 apps from the box: Web Browser, Phone, Maps, Mail, Camera, Notes, Music, Settings. It is very easy to create your own apps, because any widget Blueprint inside UE4 can be used as an app!

It is also very easy to transfer this system to your own character: simply add Smartphone Component to the Character Blueprint and bind Get Smartphone function to the button you want.
