    Kenway’s Fleet - You can now interact with the main game 24/7, wherever you may be. Use the ships that you have captured to send on missions, secure routes and collect cargo and currency. The Atlantic Ocean is thriving with opportunities and you’ll need many ships to take full advantage. You can even help secure your Uplay friends’ routes and get rewarded.

    That's pretty cool. I hope it works with the PC version, they said "cross-reference the real-world location on your TV" as if they weren't taking PC gamers into account, but I guess that's nothing new.

    Some people play PC on TV too - tbh it's just generic text - since it covers console and pc


    If you follow the link - you will see:

    Cool. I'll download it.

    Only 165MB on iOS, very cool. So many apps are huge.

    I took a look at it, only works on certain android devices... good effort though.

    Is it possible to use this app on a second PC?
    I don't have any mobile device, but a second PC. Maybe there is something like an emulator to run android apps on a pc? Or even better, why not making a windows version of this app?

    Hi,

    The Companion app is only for iOS and Android.

    The idea is you can also also use it when not at your PC / Console to control the fleet in game - or - have quick access to the map etc while playing the game. - If you are playing on PC, you would need another PC available to use the app, or constantly alt tabbing to make it practical and used as intended - and at present - it's a tablet only app.

    Is it likely that the app will be available on android phones also? (instead of being tablet exclusive)

    Does this mean phone version is coming?
    I can understand why tablet is preferable as a second screen. But it would be nice to be able to manage kenway fleet when you are away from home using phone. Because phone, unlike tablet, is always with you.

    There is a workaround to make it work on smart phones.
