Mobile, PCs and consoles don't have to be at each other's throats. No, they can work together for the betterment of gamer-kind. The recently-released "companion app" for EA's Titanfall is one such example, allowing you to play the game while your phone provides extra information, including an interactive mini-map. It's just a shame Titanfall's PC constituent won't be able to benefit from it.
The app was made available yesterday on iOS and Android, as well as Windows Phone 8. The descriptions for both apps talks about who you can call up "rich intel about the history" of Titanfall -- everything from weapons and characters, to maps and game modes.
If you happen to be playing on an Xbox One, you can also take advantage of the app's "second-screen map feature", which allows you to keep an eye of friends via a mini-map. Unfortunately, as a number of one-star reviews on Google Play point out, the lack of PC support is "disappointing". True, those playing the game on a desktop are more likely to have access to a second display already, but it can't be too difficult to have the option available on both platforms.
