    Hi All. I recently published an app called 'Torn PDA', both for iOS and Android, which I developed some time ago for private use to enhance the experience of playing Torn from a mobile platform and make certain things easier: e.g. I used to have issues remembering I'm about to land abroad and ended up getting mugged a lot (notifications from other apps were not working correctly); I also thought it was cumbersome to constantly switch apps and tabs while chaining and keeping control of the chain hits/time and maintaining an extensive enemies list.

    I decided to release it publicly in case it helps other players. I should mention that in some aspects it has been influenced by other applications, such as YATA, but adapted those ideas for mobile use.

    The main features are:

    • Profile page with shortcuts to you preferred sections, access to basic status data, recent events, cooldowns and net-worth calculation. You can also manually activate notifications so that you don't waste any energy, nerve, or miss any cooldown expiry.
    • Check your travel status and configure notifications or alarms just before you arrive. No more forgetting and being mugged abroad. Also, configure the notification shown so that it is safe to use even at work or in other public environments.
    • Have a look at foreign stocks directly in the Travel section. Filter and sort items at your convenience, including profit based on item capacity. Also, by using the in-app browser, you are contributing by sending stock data automatically to the shared database!
    • User scripts support (visit our repository for tested scripts!).
    • YATA mobile interface: new sections (e.g. Awards) that constitute the first official YATA mobile interface. Data comes straight from your YATA account.
    • Ability to fill max items on arrival to destination, based on current capacity and money available. Then, use the quick home return button in the top bar to make your stay quicker and safer.
    • Quick crimes option when you visit the crimes section. Just set up your preferred crimes and they'll appear in the top bar.
    • Quick Items: browse to the items section in Torn with the full browser and add your prefer items for a quick access later on.
    • Trade calculator with total price calculation for cash, items and shares, plus the ability to copy total figures for a quick trading. If you are a professional trader, you can also synchronize with Torn Trader.
    • Automatic city items finder in the map.
    • Automatic alerts for travel, energy, nerve, hospitalization, drugs, racing, messages, events and trades.
    • Torn chat: options to highlight your name or hide the chat completely if you wish.
    • Follow your faction's chain live from the app, with instant energy updates. Use the chain watcher feature to avoid surprises.
    • Create your own target list, adding your own comments and many other details. Import and export your targets to/from YATA. While chaining, automatically skip targets that can't be attacked (hospitalised/jailed or in a different country). Get optimal targets directly from Torn Attack Central, included in the Chaining section. Chaining has never been easier.
    • Have a look at your last few attacks, with simple statistics so that you can decide when/who to add to your common chaining targets.
    • Export targets as a backup or share them with other players.
    • When in hospital, send Nuclear Central Hospital a revive request by clicking a button.
    • Create a friends list, with quick access to in-game messaging, trading and other important details. Also, add note to your friends' profiles. Backup functionality included.
    • Activate alerts for NPC loot.
    • Dark mode.
    I'd appreciate any comments, feedback or direct contribution through the GitHub repo. The app is obviously free and open-source.

    You can have a look in the relevant app stores:




    If interested, have a look at the changelog.


    ********************


    KNOWN ISSUES

    Torn API can't be contacted and the app shows a "no connection" error
    - Reason: platform issue with http connections
    - Intermediate fix: users have reported an improvement when not using a WiFi connection
    - Final fix: TBD

    Haha I've got the same rounding problem for the target levels ^^
    I love the UX great job. I look forward to any updates.
    And thanks for making it open source!

    Feature suggestion, notification for when I get out of hospital. The standard torn app doesn't notify for some reason.

    Thanks a lot. 

    I understand you'd like the APP to automatically (without activating the notification in the Travel section) trigger the notification 20 seconds before landing? So that you don't have to open the APP, for example? If so, this might be possible to do, but entails some complexity due to Android and iOS limitations if we want the notification to come at exactly the right moment (which is the main objective). Probably needs to come from an external service, like Firebase or similar. This is why I added the Travel Agency in the Travel section, because things are much easier that way.

    I'll add this as a request in GitHub so that we can explore it in the future.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion! I'll add this also as a request, the limitations and implementation method are very similar to the previous comment.

    Thank you! The browser works fine for me, but it's still under testing. By using it, we might get some benefits in the future, such as advancing from one target to another (this is a feature I'd like to add very shortly) or uploading foreign stock information to the database. In any case, please let me know what kind of issues you find (including those alarms wile spamming buttons?).

    So like the PDA in game could you add in a friends list,
    Other than that I like it.

    But since DoctorN has been having so much trouble with the abroad stock, why not go completely with AWH and Yata and use their collective abroad stock script and include the link in the app with an explanation on why to use the script

    Thank you! I'll add the Friends List as a request, it should be easy to do.

    Also, I'm in the process of adapting the app so that it can feed the shared DB directly when you visit a country in your mobile phone. Once that's done, I will get the data from there as well.

    Another idea for ya 

    Not gonna lie, I found this in the forums and thought it would be a great add on

    The creator's name is lonerider543.

    And what he has is a Company Stock alert and order reminder app for Windows PC



    Do you think you could do something like that, maybe get with him and collab

    Thanks for this precious information but your response implies two things:
    - these steps are not what I was calling a problem
    - the problem is only on the user end

    I think apps like pda can convert more people to external tools for torn

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'm actually planning all the information to be gathered and uploaded without any kind of user interaction, provided the in-app browser in used (there is an option to use the default mobile phone's browser, but it's thought as a failsafe in case the in-app one does not work for certain people, as it is still under development). Works very similar to the javascript option, getting and parsing the information as soon as we land.

    If someone wants to use Tampermonkey that's fine, but Torn APP should be easy to use (or it wouldn't make sense).

    Thanks for the suggestion. This is definitely doable, but the alerting part requires (as the notifications for hospitalization, crimes, etc.) from an external API if we'd like them to be reliable (mobile platforms, especially iOS, have very strict policies on what kind of background work can an app perform). This is the main difference -and disadvantage- comparing to developing for desktop. This is something I'll probably have to design in the future.

    I'll list it as a suggestion, thanks a lot!

    [RELEASED v1.0.4]

    - Serial attacks: attack several targets in a row without returning to the main list (just ensure that the list is properly sorted, but you can skip targets if it isn't).

    - Access your items (for medical/drugs items) in between attacks.
